A Buncha Brunch News
In the past couple of weeks, several local restaurants have either added brunch to their repertoire or switched things up on their brunch menus.
After a few weeks open with lunch and dinner menus, SPLIT Social Kitchen added a brunch menu with luscious options like cinnamon roll French toast and The Whitaker breakfast burrito filled with everything: pulled pork, ham, bell peppers, mushrooms and more and more and more.
Greek Belly serves brunch too, on the second Sunday of every month starting at 10:30 a.m. The menu is full of Greek breakfast items like zambonopita, a filo pastry filled with ham, gouda cheese and kasseri cheese. There’s sweet stuff too, like the custard-filled and powdered sugar topped bougatsa.
Farmers Gastropub and Lindberg’s Tavern have both long served brunch, but they recently revamped their brunch menus with some new items—some really, really indulgent and creative items.
For example, at Lindberg’s Tavern you can get a quesadilla made with strawberries, blueberries, goat cheese, basil and spiced honey. Oh my! You can’t go wrong with their breakfast poutine either; Lindberg’s has been killing it in the poutine game for years!
And Farmers Gastropub's take on eggs benedict is luscious, with toasted sourdough as the base, soft scrambled eggs, house-cured gravlox and hollandaise sauce. Plus their already indulgent miso mac and cheese gets a morning makeover with bacon, sausage, mushrooms, fried eggs and sriracha.
