Sunday brunch at Jane is life-changing. The Vanilla Bean French Toast crumbles softly melting immediately in your mouth, making you wonder “what did I do to deserve such a heavenly reward?” People can’t lay their eyes off this beast…or their forks. Definitely order this as an appetizer so you can indulge in some of the creative egg dishes and extensive eggs benedict list. The Country Breakfast is fun, and its all served on a cute circular plate with a handle. The cream colored walls, huge canvases with floral decor and vases full of ferns and branches create a clean and fresh atmosphere.
It’s best to visit on Sunday because the menu is a tad bigger (don’t worry french toast is served all weekend), and the bread basket includes cranberry bread with strawberry butter. The trick to beating the wait at this go-to brunch spot is to suck it up and book a reservation the day before on OpenTable.com. There are always reservations available at prime time, and it feels good to slide right on in past the hovering crowds outside. Jane’s downstairs room is also very useful for private events and big parties. Go to Jane for a brunch that you can count on!
