The 3 Best Brunch Spots Across The U.S.

The 3 Best Brunch Spots Across The U.S.

Who doesn't love champagne at 10 a.m.?


Oh, brunch… The happy medium between breakfast and lunch. The meal that makes it totally acceptable to drink champagne with your poached eggs at 10 a.m. If I had to choose a favorite meal brunch would be it; it's the best of both worlds! I’ve done a bit of traveling in my day, so here are some of my favorite brunch spots!

1. Ma’Ono - Seattle, Washington

Let’s get straight to the point, this Hawaiian influenced restaurant has the best fried chicken you will ever eat, ever. No seriously, The New York Post included it in an article titled The Best Fried Chicken in America. It is so good you have to call ahead to reserve whether you want half a chicken or a whole chicken (number of pieces is unknown because I was too busy stuffing my face). They also have $12 bottomless mimosas! For those of you who don’t speak brunch that means for $12 you can have as much champagne and OJ as you want!

2. The Waffle Window - Portland, Oregon

This place had me at waffles because, to be honest, waffles is greater than pancakes. OK, I said it! Hater’s gon’ hate. Any who, this window takeaway joint is adorable! You just go up to the window, order, and when your food is ready have a seat at a table nearby and enjoy the heaven enclosed in that container! When I visited The Waffle Window I got the blueberry cheesecake waffle! *drools*

3. Twisted Fork - Omaha, Nebraska

Since I now live in Nebraska and my love for brunch is fairly (the love grew stronger when I became of legal drinking age) new I’ve been to this place a few more times than the others. Though they don’t have bottomless mimosas they have a very reasonably priced brunch menu. This restaurant is something straight off tumblr with its turquoise colored walls and black toilets in the bathrooms! The last time I had the pleasure of dining at Twisted Fork I got the salmon scramble. Being from Seattle I’m very iffy about seafood in the midwest because, ya know, the ocean isn’t right there I wasn't pleasantly surprised with this dish and have been craving it ever since!

There are a few other brunch spots I failed to mention above like the All Day Caée in Sioux Falls, South Dakota or Over Easy in Omaha, Nebraska. Sidenote, Over Easy has a drive thru! Personally, I think it is safe to say when all else fails, just get brunch.

I was never really big on cocktails. Tequila soda is always a go-to drink for me because of its simplicity and, to be honest, lack of extra calories from mixers chock-full of sugar, chemicals, and other unknown ingredients. I like tequila, and like to be able to really savor it.

This all changed when, a couple of years ago, a friend of mine made me a margarita from scratch — no funky mixers involved — and it tasted incredible. It was light, refreshing, and complemented the tequila without overpowering it.

I was blessed with thick, full hair up until my late teens. At the time, I cursed my hairiness — this was before full eyebrows became trendy or cool, and were instead a point of bullying many of my fellow full-browed teens can relate to.

Later in my 20s, hormonal stability was something I was thankful for, though a major side effect ended up being hair loss — on my head, lashes, and brows. I now find my filling in my brows on an almost daily basis. As much as I enjoy toying with and testing out different brow-filling products, it'll never be quite the same as being able to have "I woke up like this" full, Gigi Hadid-esque brows.

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.
