But First, Brunch!

One of the best meals is brunch. The late-morning (ok, early afternoon) tradition of brunching has reached a peak in popularity which means lots of choices: So we've done the research for you: Here’s some of our favorite spots around town! Each location offers an incredible mimosa selection PLUS incredible cuisine from their various menus. Bottoms up! 

Mean Dean’s Local Kitchen

Sunday Brunch is offered every Sunday 11am to 3pm (excluding major holidays). Mimosas include: Classic, Elderflower, Hibiscus & Lavender, and Blackberry! Here are some of our fav dishes:

First, the Bananas Foster French Toast—French toast topped with flamed-to-order bananas foster!

Where are the pulled pork lovers? Try the Pulled Pork Benedict—Espresso rubbed, rum soaked pork served on an English muffin topped with a poached egg and homemade hollandaise…need we say more?

We can not recommend the Arctic Timber Bagel enough. Enjoy a chilled cedar plank salmon, topped with basil-dijon aioli, diced red onions, and capers. Served with cream cheese and an everything bagel!

Of course we have to mention the Chicken & Waffles. Delicious fried ranch seasoned chicken breast served over a candied bacon waffle. Then, topped with diced green onions with a side of spicy maple syrup.
