Check out Volume One's "Have you brunched lately?" feature story on the local brunch scene.
One of the best things about Eau Claire is the array of mouthwatering brunch spots. If you’re looking for the best place to go, however, poll voters will say The Nucleus (405 Water St., Eau Claire) is No. 1, offering a hip, cozy atmosphere to enjoy crepes, omelettes, and mimosas. Coming in second is The French Press (2823 London Road, Eau Claire), which boasts an incredible menu. Taking third is a newcomer, chef Amy Huo’s Locavore, a food truck that parks outside of SHIFT Cyclery & Coffee Bar (615 Graham Ave., Eau Claire) during the warmer months and offers all kinds of gluten-friendly options and soul-satisfying, seasonal breakfast and lunch foods. — Natalie Rosenkranz
