The basics done well — that's what we were after for this year's brunch and breakfast guide. Damn good pancakes that don't cover the entire plate and weigh you down. An on-the-run croissant that leaves telltale shards on the front seat of your car. Egg dishes that are worth the cholesterol boost. Patios that provide more than an umbrella. And brunch beverages that give the standard mimosa a run for its money. Plus, we divulge the secrets to creating the ideal cup of coffee, perfect bacon and a great egg.
We've also updated our online brunch and breakfast guide to include an additional 75 restaurants, from the sublime M Bistro at Rocketts Landing to the Castilian specialties at Maximo's in the Bottom.
