Weekend Traditions ~ Brunch


Get ready for the second food post this week...

I feel like I've posted about my brunch adventures so many times on this blog, but it really is one of the bestest weekend activities. I mean come on, who doesn't love:

#1- Vodka for breakfast
#2- Champaign for breakfast
#3- An excuse to be lazy and see friends, while eating assorted eggs, meats, and starches!


One of our favorite spots, Life Cafe, recently shut down and reopened under a different name. This was sad, since we've been going to this place since we moved to the neighborhood five years ago. Despite a sterile makeover, the menu largely stayed the same, and we still were able to order our favorite meals.

... with one notable addition. They never used to have regular 'ole eggs benedict. But now they do! Before, they just had a version with smoked salmon and avocado.

I know... poor pitiful me, with my horrible fancy salmon and avocado. Well yes, that version was always delicious. But sometimes you just crave the classics, you know? This past Sunday, I was happy to finally enjoy traditional, boring, scrumptious eggs benedict. One change I can get behind :)
