Let’s Do Brunch

The Best Mornings Start With Champagne

From bottomless mimosas to Insta-worthy waffles, NEPA’s restaurants know how to do brunch right.

Brunch is the perfect meal. You get to enjoy all your favorite breakfast foods without having to deal with that pesky alarm clock. There’s usually bacon involved, and it’s a good excuse to have a cocktail before noon. What’s not to love?

NEPA’s brunch spots offer a full spread of gourmet treats. We’re talking French toast piled high with fruit and cream, fluffy omelets made with farm-fresh eggs, and breakfast-themed burgers and pizzas. Kick back with a coffee at a stylish café or sample the local flavor at a classy farm-to-table restaurant. You can even sit down for brunch at the brewery.

Whether you’re gathering the family or meeting up with friends, NEPA’s restaurants have your weekend plans covered.

Rise and Shine at These Brunch Spots:
