The foodie awards: Best brunch places

The greatest meal of the day is a perfect combination of breakfast sweets and hearty lunches: brunch. It’s a meal so sacred it can only be appreciated late in the morning on the weekends, after everyone has gotten a full twelve hours of sleep. These are the three greatest local places to grab brunch.

From pancakes stuffed with bits of bacon to light and fluffy banana pancakes, the variety offered here makes it the perfect brunch location for everyone. Watch out for the lines, though: the wait to eat on some mornings can be as long as an hour.
