Boston loves its brunch. From café bites to diner-like fare to dim sum, the city has plenty of options—which can make it that much tougher to pick a place to eat.

In the interest of making your choice easy, we crowdsourced some options. Thanks to data from Swarm, the check-in app created by Foursquare, we were able to determine the most popular brunch spots in Boston last weekend.

Five restaurants and cafés reigned supreme, receiving the most check-ins between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. on March 19 and March 20. All of these places are repeat winners, indicating that their brunch game is very, very strong:

1. Hei La Moon

88 Beach St, Chinatown

2. Flour Bakery + Café

131 Clarendon St, Back Bay

3. South End Buttery

314 Shawmut St, South End

4. Beehive

541 Tremont St, South End

5. The Friendly Toast

35 Stanhope St, Back Bay
