Big-time brunching on Lincoln

While they aren't serving deep-fried Cap'n Crunch spinoffs, Batter & Berries is still willing to fatten up your morning meals within its perky, 68-seat nook, where framed floral art hangs on lemon walls, and the mosaic-laden tables were crafted by the owners themselves, though choosing which one to sit at will only be the start of your waffling

Speaking of, "Belgique" waffles come topped w/ candied walnuts, caramelized bananas & vanilla sauce, while French toast flights will necessitate you buy two seats on Southwest cover strawberry, blueberry, and lemon & caramel toasts with maple butter. If you're feeling savory, they're topping fresh-baked muffins w/ chicken sausage gravy, and piling steak, onions, peppers & red wine sauce on top of a "Deconstructed Omelet", which surprisingly isn't just scrambled eggs.

They're also handling lunch, plating pretzel roll Kobe sliders w/ bacon 'n blue, a chicken-stuffed sweet potato waffle topped w/ hot sauce & more fried chicken, and a Swiss/Guinness BBQ sauce/caramelized onion chicken sandwich called the Arthur, though the King you'll most closely resemble is Hippo

Best of all, come weekends there'll be a spread of fresh juices constituting a BYOBubbly mimosa bar, a move that proves junk cereal isn't the only part of this nutritious breakfast capable of fattening you up.
