This colorful and fun Lakeview brunch spot is always crowded, so get there early. (If you have little ones, you’re up at 6:44am anyway, so this is a moot point.) The children’s brunch options (kid’s burrito, pancakes with a whipped-cream smiley face, PB and J, and even a ham sandwich) are all $5 and served with fruit. The kiddos will love the small bakery section filled with Lovely baked goodies.
