Get ready to make those reservations, happy brunching!
A fairly new brunch spot in Midtown is Hatch. Not only is their food divine but the atmosphere is fun and inviting. With the cool architecture inside, they also have a chic patio for the warmer days. A must try is the King sans Banana pancakes. It is topped with sweet cream batter, peanut butter bacon, and drizzled with bourbon maple glaze. With a variety of interesting pancake recipes, hatch is my favorite brunch spot when craving something sweet.
What is more romantic than sharing Sunday brunch and a view with your loved one? Bellini’s Underground has an elegant patio to enjoy the delectable drinks served. A peach Bellini is only accurate to enjoy with your meal, it is the name of the restaurant after all. As pictured, my favorite eggs Benedict in the Metro is from here. With baked lump crab served over parmesan toast, it puts a twist on the norm for Eggs Benedict.
Waffle Champion is perfect for two reasons. Besides the unique menu, unlike other brunch spots, they have a late night window for the weekend that is open from 7 p.m.-2a.m. when you have those late night cravings. If you are craving a sugar high, order the Blueberry Sunrise. Drizzled on top is a blueberry-thyme compote with a lemon-goat cheese spread oat crumble. But for the morning you need something a little more dense, order one of their sandwiches. Side tip: add an egg to your sandwich to send your tastebuds over the top!
So not all of us are the most adventurous when it comes to brunch. West has a traditional menu where you can find your classic brunch foods. On the lighter side, West has a refreshing Kale salad that is healthy as brunch can get. With the menu including steel cut oats to salad and sandwiches, West is a great restaurant that you can guarantee quality food and service.
As sweet as it sounds, Syrup is home to many local brunchers in Norman. A must get in on the menu is the Morning Glory. You get the best of both worlds, sweet and savory. A waffle is topped with your protein (eggs, bacon, and cheese). On the sweeter side, you can’t go wrong with the red velvet waffles. Why not dessert for breakfast?
One of Nichols Hills new hidden gems is the French eatery En Croute. The coffee and pastries will have you at hello. Lucky for us they are open for breakfast everyday except Monday. Besides the warm, flakey croissants my favorite item for brunch is the Avocado Omelette. Keep your meal light because you wont want to skip out on the cheese plate as an appetizer. En Croute has homemade jam and butter and trust me it beats Smucker’s any day.
