I love brunch. Just the thought of having an array of sweet and savory dishes plus coffee and cocktails has me workin’ for the weekend. Brunch is a much-loved tradition. If you search Instagram for #brunch, you’ll see more than 13 million mouth-watering photos of carefully curated croissants, cappuccinos, Eggs Benedict, and of course the star of the show – the mimosa. Brunch is like having your cake and eating it too. Because let’s face it, some of us love breakfast but the idea of getting up early is less than appetizing.
Last weekend I took some of my girlfriends to Vaudeville in Fredericksburg, TX. This place has become my go-to for pre-winery binging goodness. Brunch was definitely in order, although they don’t technically have an official brunch menu. Their lunch menu offers a delicious quiche, however, and they have a nice selection of pastries, plus hand-crafted cocktails like mimosas and bellinis, an espresso bar, large tea selection and wine list. Definitely get the French dip sandwich and come hungry. The portions are quite generous, but if you’re planning on visiting any of the area wineries afterward, this is a good thing. Also, be sure to really appreciate the beautiful aesthetic of this restaurant. If crossing the pond is out of your budget, let Vaudeville help you feel like you’ve stepped into a French café with its black and white color scheme and accents of gray and bronze. Being that it is on the basement level of the building, there’s a certain speakeasy feel that makes it seem like you’re part of those “in the know.” They also have a market stocked with international provisions like charcuterie and other accoutrements. I’m looking into their Supper and Wine Club as well.
Have you seen the Chef’s Table series on Netflix yet? We’ve just begun watching it and I’m having all the gastronomy feels lately. Any favorite brunch spots you’d recommend?
