I come to this restaurant at least once a month. The carrot cake pancakes and blueberry bliss pancakes are addictive (as is that vanilla bean glaze in general). I also will get the steak skillet. It is very hearty and they use a good quality steak and don't overcook it. Love this place. Beware of long waits during popular brunch... More

I'm so pleased with the food, the selection and the service. Every time I go in there is something interesting to try, it's hard to make up my mind. It can be pricey, but well worth it. Service is spot on, the wait staff is always eager to serve you.

I came here with my boyfriend last weekend. Our server, I don't remember her name, Gabe is excellent service and was the sweetest. There was a broad selection and variety of food. Their serving portions are big and the food was delicious. We got an egg crepe and a skillet that came with pancakes on the side.

Breakfast here has always been excellent. Great variety on the menu and prices are reasonable. Extremely crowded on the weekend, so keep that in mind when going.

From the dishes to the service to the atmosphere, we have never been disappointed in Brunch Cafe. This has easily made its way to the top of our family's list of favorite restaurants. Their French toasts are phenomenal--from the signature to the red velvet and so on. So are the omelettes and bacon. Also the coffee and tea are incredibly... More
