    The Winchester is a welcoming brunch spot with a bright, clean space and Instagram worthy food. They serve a twist on the traditional Eggs Benedict with their house-braised bacon, and creamed kale. Read more

    The Message in a Bottle hot toddy boasts a whopping six ingredients, including a bracing dose of fiery ancho chili liqueur and acidic lemon juice. But, the flavors come together in surprising harmony. Read more

    My favorite brunch place in the neighborhood. The inside is bright and beautiful, the Bloody Mary is the best I've ever had, and the food is great. They have a small porch outside for sunny days.

    OMG those waffles! One of my favorites in West Town for late brunch. Reasonable prices. Small menu where everything is great. Thumbs up all the way!

    Its airy Scandanavian aesthetic makes it a no-brainer for mid-week coffee meetings and its stellar kitchen puts their own seasonal stamp on breakfast, lunch and dinnerRead more

    It's hard to decide which meal they serve best. The brunch on weekends is current favorite but the weekly dinners are excellent too. The little patio adds a delightful outdoor seating option.

    Absolutely order the croque winchester! Order an additional over-easy egg so you can have 1 for each waffle. SO good! ♡♡

    The Cafe Menu is no longer offered all day, so you'll only have the more expensive dinner menu to choose from in the evening. Great options, but I'll miss the sandwiches.

    Need to warm up? Try "Message in a bottle" at the Winchester. With a whopping 6 ingredients, it might be hard to gauge how the drink will taste, but the bar manager says that's part of the fun. Read more

    The cocktail in the tea pot is perfect for a winter evening. The warm grain salad and meatball dishes are unbelievably good too.

    Snap pea salad was shockingly delicious. The bucatini and fried chicken thigh were also exceptionally good.

    Meatloaf is excellent. Perfectly sized portion with just the right amount of heat.

    One of those restaurants that's "open until close", which means the bartenders stop being attentive whenever they feel like it and you wish you'd gone somewhere else.
