Although they serve lunch and dinner, Bread Winner’s is best known for their brunch, and for good reason. True to the title, their “brunch” offers everything from waffles and benedicts to burgers and salads. On the way out, grab a cookie for dessert, or order a whole cake from the bakery.
The original diner was on Central Expressway and the got second location is in Oaklawn, but either place serves an unexpectedly high class brunch 24 hours a day. No “diner food” here. The Banana Nut Pancakes are topped with fresh sliced bananas and real maple syrup. An unexpected bonus is having an option of Vegetarian Sausage in their breakfast items. The self-serve coffee bar explains the restaurant’s name and the prices are very reasonable.
Although only available on weekends, this brunch is great for the food, as well as the atmosphere. Go when the weather is nice, so you can sit on the large patio with your pooch (who will be served his own water bowl and treat if he gives the server his best puppydog eyes). Favorite brunch cocktails are only $3. Try one of their unique choices like the Egg White Frittata (a chef’s surprise every week) or the Chicken and Waffles.
Yes, during the week it is an Italian restaurant, but they also serve a delicious brunch, with an Italian flair, on Saturdays and Sundays. The $1.00 Mimosas, Bellinis, and Bloody Mary’s are a highlight, and of course they have omelets and French toast. Don’t miss out on the breakfast pizza and New Orleans-style Beignets!
