Brunch Ratings and Reviews
What impelled us to select this eatery w ...
What impelled us to select this eatery was (1) its blunt proclamation of just what we were looking to do and (2) they accepted reservations.
I am tired of standing in long lines awaiting a table on Saturday or Sunday morning because an otherwise great brunch is served at a restaurant that refuses to take reservations during brunching hours.
We had out-of-town guests who wanted to go to brunch at 12:30 because their flight out was at 4 so BRUNCH was the obvious choice. Street parking was not a problem and the ambience and menu were right. There was a wide variety of choices, the food was good, prices were fair and the portions were huge.
The only problem was it took forever to get the food ... probably due to the humongous number of tables in proportion to the number of staff and the size of the kitchen. It took us 90 minutes from start to finish.
Other than that the overall experience was pleasant and a good time was had by all that were there.

Great menu selections . Variety of sweet and savory for brunch. Atmosphere was good but loud. Waiter was friendly and helpful. Loved using Opentable for reservations. Street parking wasn't bad. I would go again for brunch. My kids loved it as well.

So glad to find a Sunday brunch spot that takes reservations. I have a large family and we love doing a siblings brunch, but always have a hard time finding a spot that can accommodate us and our friends. Great food, good value, and there are even tvs for football Sunday!

The host staff was exceptional, super friendly and accommodating, that was our first impression. Once we were seated our server came right over, he was a nice guy, good server, and then the food.... my partner and were both happy with our meals....We flew in from Boston so I can't say We'll back, however I will recommend BRUNCH to anyone I know visiting!!!

We were taken such good care of. We told them we had a grandparent hard of hearing and they gave us a special room and our own space. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was exceptional! Thank you for making our daughter's special occasion so enjoyable!

Wonderful food menu, excellent quality. Drinks, Bloody Mary's, Cery good, although fairy slow from ordering to delivery.
Decor is fairly ordinary, menu would suit a higher quality table and chairs and decor.
Service was very accommodating, nothing to much trouble, even when really busy.
Overall would be back for what it says in the tin, a good Brunch. For causal business meetings, perfect, but with new decor, might suit formal business overall too

We were at quickly, per our reservation, and had a nice private room. We had prompt food service, and everything came out correct, even with many food restrictions and specific orders. The food itself was DELICIOUS! However, our waitress was completely inappropriate. She knew we were on a bachelorette party, and had gone out the night before, and took that as an opportunity to share get own drinking stories from the night prior. She used foul language, talked about being hung over and tired, and showed us her armpit stains from sweat. We were appalled. I've been to Brunch before and loved it. Which is why I brought 11 other girls along this time. Not sure if I'll be doing that again... Maybe just takeout?

Everything was so delicious! With food so good I was surprised it wasn't packed for a Sunday. But it's good to know you might not wait long since there are many tables in a big place. Best chilaquiles I've tasted. We were a party of 10 w kids and our server handled us perfectly.

The food was very tasty, but the service was a bit slow. The most disturbing part of the experience was watching the manager cough into her hands, grab menus, and then seat us with said menus. I also saw her cough into her hand and then fill up someone's water cup. That is not something you want to see while eating. She should be a better role model for her staff.

I've been to Brunch before and wanted to go back. The wait is a little long if you don't make reservations so make sure to do that. The food is excellent and so are the bloody mary's. I highly recommend this place.

Great service coffee and food. we really love this place and glad we found it. HUGE portions, perfect for sharing or taking home. Very friendly hosts and wait staff. Never an issue even though it's very busy on the weekends. You'll want a sat or sunday reservation or be prepared for an hour wait.

Really disappointed in the service and the food, I'm sorry to say. We waited more than a half hour for our food, with our server saying she would check on the food but never reporting back. I finally tracked down the manager who said "yeah, we're running about 25 minutes today. A large party ordered before you." Really? I would've expected apologies sooner and proactively, and an offer of oj or a roll or something! My chicken sausage arrived dry and cold. The manager replaced them and then returned often to check on us. But it was sort of too late. Just not that special.

Very disappointing. We were meeting for a casual family Sunday brunch. We reserved a table for 6 and were put at a table for 5. Table was so wobbly that our drinks were spilling. We were told that it couldn't be fixed and there were no other tables available. Food was mediocre at best. Ordered sticky buns that were burnt. They forgot our 9 year olds meal. Which meant the 7 and 11 year olds were done before his food showed up. No apologies. No considerations offered. If your name is Brunch you should try to get that

The food and wait service was excellent but I cannot say the same for the host staff. We were five old friends reuniting to see a friend who recently lost his leg. We picked the spot because of its elevator for wheelchair access. Unfortunately the host treated the use of the elevator like an unnecessary intrusion. As we were leaving, we asked the host if she would take a quick picture of our group (It was not particularly busy at the time). She responded by saying that she would charge three dollars. I waited a moment to see the smile indicating that she was just kidding, but it never came. Despite the really great food, I won't be back.

To be clear, I did not have brunch. My partner and I walked out before we were served.
The reservations process was a breeze - after all, this is Opentable.
We arrived a few minutes late for an 11:30a reservation. As I approached the host stand the hostess told everyone to "just get back" we need "to clear the waitlist". I gave the host my name and stepped to the side. At 1136 I received a txt acknowledging my arrival and saying my table was ready.
They then started to seat guests - a few who arrived ahead of us, some who arrived after us. At 11:55 I asked if we were any closer to being seated. The hostess saw that we had been skipped and took us to a table. This would have completely rectified the situation if a) the table had not been one of multiple tables sitting visibly available since we arrived and b) anyone had shown up to actually wait on us. At 12:15p a server finally came with water. I looked at my partner and we decided to move on.

Cute place for brunch! It was awesome that they take reservations! Great food and service. They managed to put interesting combinations together and it worked well! Something for every taste. The space was small so tables were packed in to maximize seating, other than that no complaints.
