World Egg Day is This Friday! And, Yes, It’s a Thing!

Looking for a terrific reason to pop into Brunch for a tasty and egg-cellent meal? Then set a notification for this Friday, October 11— it’s World Egg Day!

World Egg Day Friday, October 11, 2019

World Egg Day was created over twenty year ago in Vienna to raise awareness of the benefits of eggs and their importance in human nutrition. Today the event is celebrated across the globe, as countries continue to promote eggs as affordable, versatile, and delicious.

Seriously, this is a worldwide event!

Egg-themed events are planned across the globe on Friday. Canada intends to give a major shoutout to their egg farmers…In Ghana, school kids take quizzes on egg nutrition….and Columbians are ALL in this year for World Egg Day as they attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the largest scrambled egg. 62,000 eggs will be used during the attempt, which will help to feed 15,000 vulnerable people in the area.

Lox Benedict Brunch Fall 2019 Menu

At Brunch, we’re SUPER fans of the egg (it IS our iconic logo, after all!). And we plan to do our part to help bring awareness to eggs as delicious, nutritious, and perfect for brunch entrees. Like Lox Benedict, a favorite on our new fall menu. Creamy hollandaise sauce smothers poached eggs and rich, savory lox. Served on an English muffin; a sprinkling of salty fried capers garnishes this dish.

Get crackin’ this World Egg Day!

Visit Brunch this Friday, October 11th. Our Brookfield Brunch and the newly re-opened Downtown Brunch both look forward to frying, scrambling, or poaching dozens and dozens (and DOZENS!) of the incredible, edible egg. #brunchitup

August Food Specials: B’Fast Goonies & The Elvis Sandwich

August is awesome with a month-long breakfast special. And celebrating Elvis Week in August with a tasty sandwich to honor The King. Read up then eat up!

Breakfast Goonies – Throughout August

If you’re expecting to watch the classic ’80s kids movie during breakfast, that’s not what we mean by “Breakfast Goonies” (although, that would be awesome…).

Breakfast Goonies are the August Brunch special created by Executive Chef Mike Holz. These crispy bites are  a riff on crab rangoon, the classic Chinese take-out appetizer made from fried wonton wrappers. Our Breakfast Goonies are stuffed with cream cheese, scrambled eggs, bacon, green onions, and then fried to a delicious  crisp. A side of savory bacon-garlic jam is just right for dipping. Hurry—after August, these Breakfast Goonies are going…going…gone!

Celebrate Elvis Week in August with The Elvis Sandwich Elvis Sammie Aug 9th-18th

Every August at Graceland, the famous Elvis Presley mansion in Memphis, they celebrate Elvis Week (with, apparently, even more Elvis-mania than a typical week at Graceland). This year it kicks off the weekend of August 9.

Brunch is a long way from Memphis, but we still love us some Elvis and Graceland. Legend has it Elvis noshed on a unique grilled snack. Our version layers peanut butter, sliced bananas, and honey-cured bacon between thick slices of French toast. We finish with a maple syrup drizzle. All…The…Flavors! You might even say “We’re All Shook Up!”

And lucky for you the Elvis Sandwich is one of our tried-and-true creations. So even though Elvis Week is a short time in August, you can celebrate year-round because this sammie is always on the Brunch menu (spangled jumpsuit optional).
