I love going to Union Cafe for their Sunday Brunch. The customer service is top notch. The servers are so friendly and kind. In addition, there are so many delicious choices including an omelet station, waffle station and a buffet with pancakes, eggs, breakfast pizza, sweet potato casserole, pasta, fresh fruit and delicious muffins.
One time when I went with my family, my son commented to a staff member that he wished he could have the eggs benedict without the ham (he is allergic to pork). Within minutes, that server brought him vegetarian eggs benedict. It was great that the chef made it just for him!

We had the breakfast buffet and the waffle bar was awesome. I especially recommend the chocolate chip blueberry waffles. They were the best!
