Restaurants that are only open until early afternoon mean you can get brunch any day of the week, and that’s a good thing when there’s always a wait on Sundays. This relative newcomer to the brunch scene makes everything from scratch, including Greek yogurt and jams, and gratifies the most indulgent cravings -- say, French toast with Bavarian custard filling and cream-cheese glaze.
