Zak's on 2nd has the best brunch in town, hands down. Great bloodies, benedicts and waffles, and very affordable. Also, I would argue that the new Palomino is neither tasty, nor veggie, nor deep-fried.
Devon's Seafood & Grill in the Bayshore mall has a FABOULOUS brunch. It is served on Sun.'s from 10-2. The cost is $24 but....you don't pay extra for any non-alcoholic drink. That means, coffee,orange juice, milk whatever they serve that's NA is included. No other brunch does that. Bloody Mary's and mimosa's are only $4.50 and 1/2 price bottles of wine all day. The brunch selections are UNBELIEVABLE!!! This our FAVORITE brunch!!
