Category: Blog

Is brunch your favorite meal?  

Is it your go-to choice for a social gathering of any occasion?  

Can brunch be considered a personality trait?? 

If you answered yes to all of these questions (we sure did), the Pike District is the place for you. And even if you didn’t, who can resist a Blood Orange Mimosa? 

Leek & Gruyère Quiche - Java Nation

1. Leek & Gruyère Quiche – This brunch-y goodness is made with a flaky, house-made pie crust and filled with savory egg custard with leeks, spinach, cheese, and rosemary. Need we say more? Get yours from Java Nation during brunch hours every day from 7am to 3pm or all-day Sunday. 

2. Lox Avocado Toast – The only thing better than avocado toast, you ask? Avocado toast with lox, obviously. And Nada has delivered. Their Lox Avocado Toast has chimichurri, chive cream cheese, red onion, everything seasoning, and cucumber. Nada is open for brunch on Saturdays and Sundays until 4pm. 

Blood Orange Mimosa - Owen's Ordinary

3. Blood Orange Mimosa – Don’t worry, Boozy Brunch-ers, we didn’t forget the mimosas. One of our favorites is the Blood Orange Mimosa from Owen’s Ordinary. Did we mention the mimosa is just as beautiful as it is tasty? You can indulge in brunch at Owen’s Ordinary on Saturdays and Sundays. 

4. Short Rib HashCity Perch Kitchen & Bar’s Short Rib Hash is the perfect mix of eggs cooked to order, braised short rib, home-fried potatoes, bell peppers, and onion. We can’t get enough of this flavorful comfort food, and we know you won’t be able to, either.  

Lobster and Egg Bruschetta - Pinstripes
