    This is the best brunch in the city. Breakfast sandwich with sriracha Brussels sprouts, avocado toast with poached eggs, and country fried bacon with honey and Tabasco. Don't overlook the Bloody Mary.

    Grilled Brook Trout with toasted almonds and asparagus sautéed in brown butter and grilled lemon wedge $28. Side of roasted Brussels sprouts are finely shaved with sriracha $9. Sit at bar.

    Avocado toast, brussels sprout, and egg sandwich! Loved the hired non-alcoholic cocktail too. But the most amazing part was the SERVICE. Thank you for the amazing brunch experience

    Bloody Mary lover?Make sure to taste booth their Bloody Mary and the Bloody Caesar. The later has more worcestershire sauce and comes with brussel sprouts wrapped in bacon!

    The staff are extraordinary and friendly, and the food actually is better than what one has come to expect for "brunch." Small, always busy, but worth it. Try to go off hours... Brunch served until 4.

    Get a feast to share. Sriracha Brussels sprouts, avocado toast, and the monkey bread!

    The menu options include an egg sandwich with manchego on a croissant; a smoked salmon tartine with eggs and caper cream cheese; and a crowd-pleasing avocado toast with eggs. Read more

    The wait staff is awesome and make you feel like you've been there a hundred times, and the food is delicious! Highly recommend the salmon and the salted caramel pudding.

    I was perfectly happy with my steak until I took a bite of my girlfriend's Pork Hock and was swept with an overwhelming wave of food regrets. Luckily I had the Sriracha Brussel Sprouts to comfort me

    One of my fave din spots! Super fun ambiance with a good crowd. I love that the place is chill yet good food! Get the sriracha brussel sprouts for a side and salted caramel pudding (incredible)!

    Dine like an 1849er. This incredibly small place makes some of the most incredible food. The egg sandwich is out of the world n so is the benedict. The french press coffee is absolutely amazing.

    Cozy, good food. Serve Stumptown coffee which is a bonus. Try their hashbrowns, they're really thin strands which gets both crispy on the outside and kinda fluffy on the inside. Super good and unique.

    One of my favorite places to brunch-the entire menu is top notch, & there's rarely a long wait. Get the Magdalena to drink-& head across the street to the puppy store for post-brunch cuteness!

    Brunch menu is so damn good. I had the avocado toast breakfast w/cheddar grits & not one but two TuK TuK's. I drank it all plus the beautiful edible flower. Try the country fried bacon Life changing.

    Happening brunch spot with great vibes and really nice waiters and host. The avo toast is less exciting than I expected but I would still come back everyday. Expect to wait.

    If you're here for dinner, caramelized cauliflower and steak tartare are awesome appetizers. The roasted chicken is a delicious main. The service is exceptional, trust your waiter's recommendations.

    The Greens and Eggs 🍳- filling and spicy 🌶. I'd pass on the country fried bacon unless you're with at least three other people who also love bacon 🥓

    Lamb neck confit is amazing - melts in your mouth. Ribs special and pork hock are also fantastic. Not as crazy about the veggie sides, but they do some amazing things with meat!

    This is our home away from home! We can’t get enough of the Caramelized Cauliflower or the Crispy Braised Pork Hock. And we always wash it down with at least one Magdalena!

    No reservations but just fantastic food and tiny adorable date spot, great ambiance and great service. They have a chef's pass table for 2 that's awesome if you can snag that seat. $$$

    Hip-hop brunch beats. The Bloody Caesar (with bacon-wrapped Brussels sprouts and an oyster) is the only way to start things off.

    southern style brunch. try the egg sammie, the hash brown nest, and the country style bacon (it's double fried and drizzled in honey and tabasco). your heart may stop but you'll be happy.

    The garlic and pork sausage comes with five big slices. It's worth getting on the side of any order, even if you don't eat it all.

    What to Order: Stick to the basic bistro fare here: frisee salad (fried egg, lardons, brioche and red wine vinaigrette) and a slab of country pate. Read more

    With only seven tables and a straightforward menu of strip steak and roasted chicken, you might just feel like you're at a dinner party with your new best friends.

    I must have been here on an off time. Nothing I got was very good - the Bloody Mary or the sausage/egg/hash brown dish. Everything was way over-cooked - and I like crispy hash browns!

    There's a bang-up brandade, decorated with pepper marmalade, and a perfect frisee salad with lardons and egg, deconstructed but still unmistakably French. Read more

    If you can't get into this brunch hotspot cross the street to Jefferson's (their sister restaurant) and grab a bloody mary while you wait for them to seat you across the street :)

    Coffee was way overpriced ($5 for a basic cup), but food was great. Get seats in the back overlooking the kitchen where you can choose your entree based on what looks best. Burger was delicious.

    8/10. The lamb neck was amazingly tender. I normally hate Brussels sprouts but if my mum had made them like this I would have eaten them everyday. Service was fun.

    Must. Absolutely must get the butter lettuce salad with chicken, radish, goat cheese, and toasted almonds. Avocado toast (with chili flakes) is also a winner.

    Vegetable dishes rock. Try the pumpkin, cauliflower, Mac and cheese. Special fish and fritters were great too. Ask for a table in the back if possible.

    Easily one of the best brunches in the city. Get the egg sandwich & a side of the country fried bacon. The siracha brussels sprouts won't disappoint.

    Harper's Bazaar says, "One of the coziest restaurants in the city, you feel like you're hidden from the world, especially if you get a table in the back corner."

    Adorable space with very well portioned brunch food. I want to live here. Bonus: The tiny bathroom is well stocked with whatever you may need.

    The Bloody Mary's here are great as are the brunch items generally. I would recommend not straying too far from the tried and true menu items.

    Best entrée we've tasted there so far is artic char seared in brown butter, or, for lighter diners, a mushroom omelet. Read more

    I would consider myself someone who knows brussels sprouts. But I have never known brussels sprouts such as these. Make sure you know them also.
