Fremont Diner – Sonoma, CA

Once upon a time this spot used to be a secret but…that’s not so much the case anymore.  The line will prove it too!  But don’t be afraid, people are there for a reason and it’s worth the wait.  Just grab a coffee, iced tea or malt and make the most of it:)

I was there recently for brunch and was overwhelmed by all the tasty options on the menu.  What to order – what to order!  I finally decided on the chilaquiles.  That seems to be my go-to whenever I see it on a menu.  I’m so glad I decided to add the “smoked pork” for $3.50…worth every cent!!!  What a scrumptious breakfast/brunch/lunch!  I couldn’t even finish it but I didn’t leave overly stuffed and I would definitely go back for this again.  My friend got the “shrimp & grits” which were just as amazing.  There was so much more to both these dishes than expected.  Packed with flavor and complexity…the first bite left us moaning, “Mmmmm…Mmmmm!”:)

The “chicken & waffle” and “breakfast toast” had me salivating as well.  Next time:)

Revel (brunch) – Seattle, WA

You wouldn’t think Revel could get much better but if you haven’t been there on a weekend then you’re definitely missing out.  On Saturdays and Sundays from 10am – 2pm, Revel offers the most incredible and unique brunch.  From your classic eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast to ramen, Kalbi burger and kaffir lime yogurt – it caters to everyone!

Your best bet is to go with a group of 4 so you can sample something from every category on the menu without getting overly full.  All of the dishes are appropriate to share so don’t be afraid to order more than you normally would…take a little and pass it down:)  I promise there won’t be food leftover.

Must haves include the bacon gruyere biscuit, the Revel ramen, the Kalbi burger (you won’t want to share this once you take your first bite), kaffir lime yogurt with mango and black rice puffs, and the short rib rice bowl.  The Abura noodle bowl is also very scrumptious.  More on the savory side for breakfast/brunch – I would love it anytime of the day.  It might sound like most of these things are filling but again…go with friends and share!
