Weekend brunch, held in the Gladstone Cafe, is served from 8am-4pm on Saturdays and Sundays with one of the best brunch menus I’ve seen yet. Their menu, in my opinion, is so fresh and creative. To me, it breathes new life into brunch as a meal.
I have never had banana bread so moist in my life. The insides were soft and so flavourful while the outsides had that beautiful French toast crust to it that prevented the butterscotch, light at air pecan cream, and fruit from sogging the banana bread up.
Thanks for the kind words Deb! We are more than happy to brag about this and our brunch.
