brunching: west end tavern

IMG_4378
If you’re looking for a new brunch spot to check out this weekend, look no further. West End Tavern on Detroit in Lakewood is definitely one of my new favorite brunch spots in Cleveland. I will say, prior to this past weekend I had only been to West End after a couple few many beers on a Friday or Saturday night and so I was skeptical about their brunch. I honestly didn’t even know they served food. I was pleasantly surprised at how amazing it was!

What I didn’t love:

  • They could have used one more server. The place was pretty crowded and they only had one server and one bartender.

What I love:

  • They serve brunch on Saturday. Why is it so hard to find a place that serves brunch on Saturday?! Not only do they serve it, the place was packed!
  • The bloody mary bar looked awesome. I don’t love them myself (or maybe I just haven’t had a really good one…) but I’m sure someone who appreciates them would love it. I opted for a mimosa and it was also great.
  • The food was phenomenal. My friend and I split an order of eggs (which came with a side of meat, potatoes and toast) and stuffed french toast with berries (which also came with meat and potatoes). Everything we had was so, so good. The potatoes were probably my favorite.

All in all, West End Tavern isn’t just for late night boozin’! Get yourself there for brunch ASAP!
