Brunch It Up! Throwback Thursday Edition
I have a confession to make. I love brunch. I have been meaning to mention these brunch spots for awhile now. I love going to brunch on the weekends. At times, it can be the highlight of my weekend. Sad, but true haha. Here are some of my favorite brunch spots in Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati.
Mokka and the Sunset Bar & Grill (Decent Prices)
This particular restaurant is in Newport, Kentucky and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. However, if you’re going on the weekends be prepared for a long wait. This tends to be a place I frequent often since I live rather close and the food is often spectacular. I don’t particularly like their regular coffee there but I do enjoy getting their mochaccinos. Again, this place is always packed for brunch. Get there early! On the left my friend got the breakfast quesadilla, which he enjoyed and I ALWAYS get the Mokka French Toast. The Mokka French Toast breakfast comes with a choice of meat, potatoes and french toast with creme brulee on the top. It’s sooooo good! The only problem I have with this place is that it does take forever to get a meal sometimes.
The Echo Restaurant (Very Decent Prices)
Ok, so Mokka’s can be a long wait, but this restaurant had people waiting outside the door! This Hyde Park, Ohio restaurant was definitely worth the wait though, and the line did go rather fast. Echo is only open for breakfast and lunch but it’s probably because there are so many people everyday that if they opened for dinner they might explode. I was there during fall (See this post is from awhile ago) and I got the salted caramel apple french toast. I was in heaven. If I could describe a food heaven, this food would definitely be there. The coffee is delicious and the menu changes all the time! So depending on the season you can get certain menu items. I loovvvee this place. I have sort of forgotten what my friend got but we were both beyond happy.
Incline Public House (A Little Pricey)
Be prepared to wait at this restaurant too, I’m starting to see a pattern. The Incline House is located in Price Hill, Ohio.The views are incredible, I can’t wait to go there in the summer. I’ve been here for Father’s Day last year and it was slammed. So be prepared to go as soon as they’re open (Which they are for breakfast, lunch and dinner). I got the mimosa with strawberry puree and my friend got the ultimate bloody Mary. We both made excellent choices and we’re quite content since we both were quite hungover. I had the Banana Foster’s French Toast had The Hangover Cure. Both were delicious. While the brunch was a little more expensive since we had the much needed pick me up drink, it was still delightful. I can’t wait to go there for dinner.
