SRQ Magazine | April 2017
Whether meeting family to catch up or recuperating with friends after a night on Main Street, it’s hard to beat the comfort and camaraderie of a hearty brunch. This year, it was MADE that won over the voters to be named Best Of for its inventive menu and laid-back atmosphere. Station 400 holds on tight at the first finalist position, with its mimosas and Nutella waffles garnering special mention, while State Street Eating House brings down a second finalist win set to live music. Shore Diner rounds out the rankings at third finalist.
Kim Livengood (on MADE): Billionaire Bacon with brioche french toast. Need I say more? Made’s brunch is over-the-top delicious. The service and atmosphere is the perfect way to start your Sunday and end the weekend.
Esther Bonilla (on MADE): You haven't really brunched in SRQ until you've brunched at MADE. Just do the extra cardio and get the BLFT Benedict—you won't regret it!
Roland Emerson (on Station 400): Station 400 is always clean and comfortable with a great menu selection. The food and is consistently top notch. When I think great breakfast, I think Station 400.
Deb Kabinoff (on State Street Eating House): State Street’s new brunch offers the most innovative, fresh, delicious food you could eat on a Sunday morning! We go to brunch at State Street to soak in the relaxing ambiance and enjoy the great food. The sweet potato pancakes with fresh blueberries, bacon, and goat cheese butter are a stunning combination of sweet and savory. Delicious!
Jorge Cherriz (on State Street Eating House): State Street has an amazing brunch, the eggs Benedict with different options "chorizo, steak or lobster are out of this planet.
