Breakfast lovers shouldn’t miss Meridian Cafe. Offerings include superb French toast, a bagel sandwich with smoked salmon and wilted spinach, and hearty pastrami hash. If you’re more into lunch, check out the white bean burger or shitake mushroom sandwich.
The perennially popular eatery offers outdoor seating and a brunch menu served all day Saturday and Sunday. The tomato-dill soup is a house specialty, and salads and sandwiches include names like The Naturalistic and The Louis XIV (chicken salad with apple slices and lettuce).
This wildly (excuse the pun) popular breakfast and lunch spot is an ode to the egg. The dining room features egg art and even egg-shaped salt and pepper shakers. The creatively titled offerings include “Violet You’re Turning Violet” blueberry pancakes and “Crispy Hippie Crunch” granola waffles.
