Bringing Brunch a Fresh Face

This year, we asked the question: what if you could have brunch, charcuterie style? So we took all the staples, both savory and sweet and we created the Brunch Board. Featuring pasture raised eggs, sustainable smoked salmon, candied bacon, einkorn waffles, fresh pastries, an acai bowl and more, this is a breakfast that has to be eaten to be believed. 

Vibrant. Colorful. Vegan.

Crunch into our creamy Avocado Toast, topped with shaved heirloom vegetables and English pea pesto or savor our fluffy Purple Barley Waffles, served with fresh coconut butter and caramel sauce. Our culinary creatives can easily elevate your dining experience to exceed any dietary need or wish!
