Buckminster’s at 21st and Federal in Point Breeze is adding weekend brunch. Chef Rob Marzinsky’s menu includes eggs, sweets plus some of hits off of the dinner menu. If we were ordering right now we’d be torn between the intriguing Caroline rice and pork congee sauerkraut with fried onions, chilies and a soft egg or the “Bologna and Cheese” that is served with spelt bread, Ely Farm cheese, Lebanon Bologna, sunny side up egg and cranberry mostarda.

There is nothing — nothing — I want more on a Sunday morning than a big ol’ plate of chocolate chip pancakes and an equally large mimosa. And maybe a side of veggie sausage, if I’m feeling particularly indulgent. But starting one’s Sunday with a giant plate of carbohydrates and a cup of alcohol isn’t really the best way to, you know, feel good about your decisions. Unless, of course, you run to said plate of carbohydrates and cup of alcohol, burning off calories en route and earning it — er, at least earning a few bites of it. We’re guessing Keith Zonderwyk at Yards Brewing Company had some similar thoughts in mind when he decided to start the #yardsbRUNch running series, which kicks off this Sunday, December 6th.

avocado-toast-girardJust in time for its first anniversary, Girard on Girard is shifting its concept to focus on daily breakfast and brunch only. The change goes into effect on Tuesday, December 1st and will feature a new menu as well as new hours.

The BYOB will open daily at 7 a.m., serving coffee, breakfast sandwiches, house-made pastries and morning specials.

Looks like workout/brunch hybrids are officially a thing, and we are not mad about it all. A few weeks ago, we told you about a new monthly yoga-and-breakfast club at Hydro+Pose, and weeks before that, Animo hosted a yoga-and-brunch class at their Center City location. Now, Animo has a few more fitness-and-brunch shindigs coming up, and Lisa Ransing from Full Moon Fare (Remember her? She was behind this Namaste for Dinner yoga series.) is teaming up with South Kensington’s new Paperbox Yoga Studio for a yoga class followed by brunch in December. See? I told you workout/brunch hybrids are officially a thing.

Below, all the info on the upcoming sweaty brunch gatherings at Animo and Paperbox. Go, sign up to get your sweat (and mimosa) on. Read more »

Opa Adds Sunday Brunch


Just some of Opa’s new brunch items.

When chef Bobby Saritsoglou was at Santucci’s at 10th and Christian, his brunch was a great, under the radar choice and now he’s rolling out Sunday brunch at Opa and it is really appealing to us right now.
