Thinking about moving to (or staying in) the East Bay area? You are in for a breakfast treat if you have never experienced any of these extraordinary places to do brunch in the East Bay area! Whether you crave biscuits, omelets or a bowl full of fancy fruit, take your crew out for a brunch at any of these great eateries and you won’t be disappointed.
Grand Lake Kitchen
This little place, run by a husband and wife duo, serves some amazing savory French toast! Be prepared for what looks like a sidewalk party when you show up because the inside is a little cramped, as is the patio, so there is often a line extending. Grand Lake Kitchen offers a hip, laid back atmosphere. Don’t forget to try their delicious coffee.
Treat yourself to a mimosa with a plate of gingerbread pancakes and a side of poached pears at La Note Restaurant. Perhaps instead you would like to feast on a heap of regular pancakes loaded with fresh butter and syrup. Their raspberry oatmeal pancakes are also divine!
900 Grayson offers the fresh, organic vibe that is characteristic of the food scene in the Bay Area. If you can handle fried food before noon, try the Demon Lover Chicken with waffles and gravy. Unfortunately, this dive is only open for brunch on Saturdays.
Rick & Ann’s
Rick & Ann’s has been kicking it in the East Bay food scene since 1989. Serving fresh ingredients that are turned into comfort food dishes that will remind you of your childhood, this joint will not disappoint! From regular pancakes to whole grain options or even a tofu scramble for the vegetarian or vegan crowd, Rick & Ann’s has options for everyone.
