Brunch Spots You May Never Think About… But You Should

Ask almost anybody about brunch and they’ll rave about the Stuffed French Toast at Palmetto Bay Sunrise Café, the Signature Quiche and espresso at the French Bakery, and the Benedicts or Crepes at Skillets Café & Grill. Oh, and if pancakes are your jam, then Stacks is your go-to, while others in the brunch game can’t resist the True Country Breakfast at Plantation Café and Deli.
