Pepperwood Bistro

If live music and a great meal is your thing, then make sure you put Pepperwoods on your list for brunch!  Brunch is served on weekends from 10:30-2:00 and you can enjoy their breakfast flatbreads, Rise ‘N Shine Tacos, Hang Over Burger or their Brunch Platter for 2 which includes peameal eggs benedict, waffles, sausage, bacon and more!  Every Sunday from 11-3 enjoy live jazz music from Mike Maguire. You may just get so settled in and relaxed that brunch turns into dinner!

Saving Thyme Catering & Patisserie

If you have not tried one of their croissants or scones I kid you not – you do not know what you are missing! They are melt-in-your-mouth delicious and we are glad they  are on the opposite side of town to our office or we would be eating them by the hour.  This is a cute little patisserie with limited seating (but we hear they are expanding!) that is quaint and inviting. They are open Tuesday to Friday 9 am-6 pm and weekends 8am-4pm. Enjoy eggs benedict, seasonal vegetable crepes or their house granola to name a few. Or sit and sip a coffee while indulging in one of their amazing baked goods. Whatever you choose, you can’t go wrong!
