With Father's Day this weekend, what better for our Top 5 Friday post than a list of great area brunch spots that Dad will love. We've got an eclectic list below so it's sure to please everyone!

1. Doherty's Irish Pub

With locations in Cary and Apex, Doherty's is a great option for the family. The traditional Irish breakfast is not to be missed - bangers, rasher, eggs, baked beans, and more. But don't worry, the classic brunch items like french toast and omelettes are there, too. And did we mention the make-your-own Blood Mary bar? It's a fun way to kick off Father's Day for sure!

2. Fortnight Brewing Company

If Eggs Benedict isn't really your dad's thing, then bring him over to Fortnight in Cary. Starting at 2:00 pm, the brewery will be having a special Father's Day event with burgers from Al's Burger Truck and live music. Brewery tours will also be running during the day. With lots of outside seating, this is a great place to kick back, grab a bite, and relax for a little while.

3. Totopos Street Food & Tequila

Served from 12:00-3:00 on Sundays only, Totopos offers something different than your standard brunch fare. This Mexican restaurant offers heuovos rancheros, chorizo and eggs, and breakfast burritos, just to name a few. The Mexican wrestler-inspired decor also makes this a fun spot for the kids. Who says margaritas and Father's Day don't go well together?!

4. Verandah

Have you visited Cary's newest upscale Southern eatery, Verandah, yet? Located downtown in the brand new Mayton Inn on Academy St., this place serves up a classic brunch menu with a Southern twist. There's waffles, omelets, healthy salads, and more. One of the best things about this new restaurant is the outside veranda, a beautiful spot to celebrate Dad.

5. Dean's Seafood Grill

Do you really want to "wow" Dad on Father's Day? Consider taking him to Dean's for their mouth-watering brunch buffet. Starting at 9:00 am, this is a brunch that can't be missed. There are chocolate chip pancakes and homemade waffles for the kids, but also delicious grown-up fare like oysters, peel-and-eat shrimp, and even a sirloin carving station. If Dad loves seafood, this is where you want to be. And don't forget to make a reservation for this one - you'll probably need it.

So there you have it - a list that runs from classic brunch fare to Mexican eggs to oysters on the half shell. No matter what your dad likes, this brunch list should have him covered. Did we leave your favorite place out? Let us know in the comments.

And Happy Father's Day to all you wonderful dads, husbands, and partners out there!
