Situated in a prime location on Wells Street, Kanela Breakfast Club consistently receives rave reviews on their Bloody Marys (with grilled cheese in it), loukoumades (Greek cinnamon donuts), s’mores pancakes and their eggs Benedict. The best part of this brunch is that the wait time is not overwhelmingly long like most without reservations. If you’re visiting in the summer, we recommend sitting outside on the patio. If visiting in the winter, then order their killer mint hot chocolate.

Nookies has the earliest opening time for any BYOB in this area and is noted for their outstanding, friendly service. Needless to say, this is a great place to start your day for brunch, whether the mimosas are flowing or not. Secondly, it’s a phenomenal way to satisfy a sweet tooth considering their stuffed brioche French toast, and delicious crepes. Their seasonal specials generally include various cream and berry combinations. As a family-owned, local chain with all-day breakfasts, Nookies is an easy win with a limited wait time.
