Group brunch 10:30 am – There are a few places we are suggesting as it can be very difficult to get a spot for a huge number of people. But we would encourage you to meet in the lobby to go to one or two of these as a group to continue the camaraderie and fun.
- Specialties Cafe at University Village – quick(ish), easy, casual, and you can order separately and eat outside.
- Portage Bay Cafe – delicious but very popular, better for smaller group
- Wayward Vegan Cafe – great reviews online
- Sunflour – a delicious bakery and cafe
- Franks’s – Oysters and other fancy brunch items
- Chaco Canyon – Vegetarian and organic and yummy
