    Sunday FUNdays! Bottomless Mimosas on Sundays from AM until 14:00. They require that you order a dish, but I don't think they'd know really. Besides, brunch/breakfast and mimosas are great together!

    Best part is they validate for parking in the fourth st. garage just overhead! More of a bar scene than other Flames, which can be a slight drawback for families.

    Try the Bread Pudding French Toast comes with 2 slices with caramel sauce, whipped cream and the batter is vanilla cinnamon egg. It comes with 2 eggs cooked how you like and bacon, sausage or ham choi

    Come during happy hour for the cheap drinks and half-off appetizers, but be warned that it gets LOUD, almost club-like. Not a great place to be if you want to talk with a friend.

    Loose with the bottomless mimosas! They're always willing to bring more champagne for the bubbly. Mmmmm... Food is good too!
