We return often and order the same things every time. Kids love the salmon served with smashed cauliflower and potato puree. Hubby and I love the Shrimp and chorizo over white polenta cooked with coconut milk. Save room for coffee and dessert!

Red Eye has some of the best coffee in town. Their brunch options are creative and yummy. On the weekend, their maple bacon is divine. The basic egg sandwich here turns into a true culinary delight.
