We Missed Those Bottomless Mimosas and Fluffy Pancakes So, So Much
Now that restaurants are open again, our weekend brunch plans are back on. We’re eager to get back to NEPA’s local brunch spots, from the cute cafés to the classy farm-to-table restaurants. You can even sit down to brunch at the brewery.
Call up your brunch squad and book a table. Better yet, enjoy that Bloody Mary and French toast al fresco. Some restaurants are even doing takeout so you can get your brunch to go.
And don’t forget, for all of our friends, families and neighbors, continue observing all recommended health and safety precautions to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
