Are you a ‘brunchie’? Buffet or plated?

Are you a ‘brunchie’? I mean, do you really, truly enjoy a good brunch? Some of us are ‘all about that brunch’ for sure. Honestly, I always thought brunch was a buffet. In all my travel exploits, I had always seemed to only run into brunch buffets. Then, I started to seek out buffets in the Southern part of the US. Mind blown. What’s with the plated brunch menu? That’s not a brunch at all.

Plated brunches limit my choices. I might want salmon and eggs, then return for crab cake benedict. Why must I make such a limited choice, on a single plate, for such a monumental meal? It is brunch after all. The meal that makes my heart sing with joy.

It is possible that I’ve primarily encountered brunch buffet due to my frequent hotel stays. However, if we want to discuss brunches we enjoy, I would be remiss not to mention the following options for Easter weekend:

Sunday, April 5th – 11:00 to 2:30

Cadot’s will offer a 3-course set menu for Easter Sunday. It is a small restaurant. Hence, I would suggest an early start if this is your choice for Easter brunch.

NOLA, short for New Orleans, offers New Orleans style food. Every Sunday, NOLA’s offers a plated brunch menu to satisfy the taste of most ‘brunchies’.

  1. Buffet brunches are all I have encountered in my “extensive” brunch experience. But I can see how just a plated brunch could be fabulous! Just a couple of amazing dishes would really fill me up and keep me happy all day! I’d love quiche and something sweet with whipped cream. (Waffles, pancakes, or crepes)

    1. Helena, I was baffled to find the plated option. When I first visited NOLA the first time, I was so excited because they advertised brunch. We walk in and the host immediately tells us, very snotty, “Our brunch is plated, no buffets.” Why thank you sir. We still go to Bonnie Ruth’s far more… plated and buffet available.

  2. I am definitely a brunch kinda girl. But I guess it depends what I am in the mood to eat that day. Sometimes I like buffets but sometimes I prefer plated. My answer doesn’t really help but there is one thing that I can say is that I love food. lol. Love your post :)
