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

The 3 Best Brunch Spots Across The U.S.

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.

In 2016, a stray cat gave birth to a litter of three grey kittens on my aunt and uncle's property. I had never considered myself to be much of a cat person, but these furballs immediately stole my heart. I got to watch them grow up until they were old enough to leave their mother's side.

11 Reasons Why Getting A Cat Is The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Mental Health

Cats may mess up your puzzles but they'll always love you unconditionally — as long as you have some catnip, that is.

Scout Guarino

Alright, everyone, it's time to stop spreading the rumor that all cats are mean, aloof, and hate everyone. Like dogs, each cat has its own personality and tendencies. Some like a lot of attention, some like less — each person has to find the right cat for them. As for me, my cats Bienfu and Reptar have seen me at my worst, but they've also helped pull me out of it. They're a constant in my life and they give me the strength to get through the day in spite of my depression, and there's even scientific evidence to support it!
