Check out Volume One's "Have you brunched lately?" feature story on the local brunch scene.
“But first, brunch.” It’s more than an unoriginal phrase found on a sign in your mother’s kitchen: it’s a way of life. Taking the bacon for the best brunch in the area is The Nucleus Café (405 Water St.). From the yeti skillet to the vegan crunch wrap, every item on this menu is pure fire, and fitting for your brunch hour. Coming in second is The Informalist (205 S. Barstow St.), where you can find a variety of vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options, served up in a classy high-end feelin’ atmosphere (and let’s talk about those breakfast nachos)! Rounding out our list is The French Press (2823 London Road), a local café and bakery that also offers catering, its indoor seating cozy and menu wide.
