Resident Foodies say: One of the true delights of Town’s End Restaurant and Bakery in San Francisco is the complimentary basket of muffins and biscuits that awaits you when you are seated. Today we had both blueberry and gingerbread mini muffins, and biscuits. Delightful!

Resident Foodies say: Tasi Cafe is a small, hidden gem in the Short North. Tucked away off High Street (turn on Brickel St. and then at corner of Pearl), Tasi is short on space (communal tables and smaller tables), but long on assorted selections for breakfast and lunch daily (and dinner on Friday and Saturday). The lunch sandwiches are very creative and tasty (e.g., open faced zoe tuna salad, with capers relish, onions, hard boiled egg, on sourdough toast), but today we sampled some good old fashioned breakfast! We had the huevos rancheros, and two different cafe fritattes with mesclun salad–one with chorizo, potatoes, onions, peppers, and the other with mozzarella, spinach, and roasted tomato. They were delicious. You can’t find this kind of selection anywhere else in Columbus. Oh, and the baked goods are amazing. The place gets packed on the weekend, so be prepared to wait some for a table and find a spot at the communal tables.
Brunch at Orange restaurant in Chicago
Orange is a groovy brunch place in Chicago. “Frushi” is fruit sushi–a very fun dish. The entrees were eclectic and very interestingly prepared–also quite delicious. And the fresh squeezed orange juice makes you feel like you’re in Florida. Really a great brunch place all round!
Orange rosemary French toast.
Green eggs and ham.
Chicken + Waffles @ Fiddlehead Cafe in Chicago
Just had this amazing brunch at Fiddlehead Cafe in Chicago (Lincoln Square) consisting of chicken and waffles, topped with Canadian bacon! I was skeptical of the idea of chicken and waffles, but now am a total convert. The combination of salt and sweet was so tasty. The texture of the waffles so light and fluffy, while the chicken was tender and juicy. Yum, yum.
