As the weather heats up, head to brunch at one of these gloriously tempting spots along the majestic Hudson River.

3 Westerly

3 Westerly Rd, Ossining; 914.762.1333

At sunset, the view from this stylish waterfront restaurant can’t be beat, whether you’re sitting in the nautically inspired interior or on the spacious 100-seat terrace, but on sunny Saturdays and Sundays, the view is also divine, as is the bottomless brunch menu, which includes stiff drinks, smoked salmon and avocado toast, banana-Nutella pancakes, and jazz or DJ, depending on the day.

Weekends, Noon to 4 p.m.

Half Moon

1 High St, Dobbs Ferry; 914.693.4130

With a loaded brunch menu bursting with all manner of brekkie and elevated lunch-type items (alongside craft cocktails with hard to resist names like “it takes two to mango”) quiche, fried chicken and waffles, and lobster rolls, this riverside spot satisfies every craving for every bruncher from the quintessential quiche lover to those who can’t ever say no to a lobster roll no matter the time of day, to those curious cravers who somehow believe fried chicken qualifies as breakfast simple because it’s served atop a waffle.

Weekends, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Harvest on Hudson

1 River St, Hastings-on-Hudson; 914.478.2800

Take your pick of lush outdoor spaces at this riverfront stalwart. We’re partial to the 2,000 sq. ft. landscaped garden, where you can relax under an orange umbrella with a bacon-egg-and-cheese pizza, a seafood tower, warm espresso bomboloncini with caramel custard filling, or plate of whole-wheat-mascarpone waffles.

Weekends, 11:15 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Red Hat on the River

1 Bridge St, Irvington; 914.591.5888

This French-American bistro, situated in a pleasing 1910 brick building, hosts spectacular liquid vistas from nearly every seat in the house, making focaccia eggs Hollandaise, Brioche French toast with sweet cinnamon butter, and the classic “Sunday Sandwich” go down easy like Sunday morning (or early afternoon, you pick).

Sunday, Noon to 2:30 p.m.

X2O Xaviars on the Hudson

71 Water Grant St, Yonkers; 914.965.1111

Chef Peter Kelly’s venerated New American restaurant on the Yonkers Pier manages to be both a splurge and a steal at brunch. The $48 price tag includes three luxurious courses (poached eggs with crabmeat hollandaise, anyone?), plus unlimited Champagne cocktails that feel like they’re always being topped off; passed bites, including plump lamb chops and Kelly’s signature coconut shrimp; and clear-day views that stretch all the way to Manhattan.

Sundays, Noon to 2 p.m.
