Now it's brunch time!

Thanks for reading. We'll see you next week for another year of brunch!


  1. Congratulations on a year of brunching! I'm looking forward to more hidden treasures. By the way, do all these places only serve brunch on the weekend?

  2. Thank you for your reading and commenting too, Doug. No, fortunately. Most of them have the same menu for weekday breakfast-y food too. That's a good idea to add to next year's crop of reviews, though. Some people don't work weekday mornings!
