Out for a late dinner with family (including small kids) and adult friends, we stumbled across this hidden gem. While the kids had sliders and fries, the adults shared five starters: blue cheese smothered chips, salt and pepper chicken wings with a ginger teriyaki sauce, smoked Gouda fondue with brioche, southern style crab cakes with a spicy remoulade, and a...

My 21-year-old daughter and I both enjoyed brunch here. It was raining the day we visited and parking was a little tight so we ended up walking about a block in the rain. There was a 20 minute wait and the girl at the front told us we had to move to the bar next door...which seemed weird at 11:30... More

I took my nephews and nieces here for a brunch before we headed out to an event. I also had my son and husband so our table was full but when the bill came up, it wasn't too bad. We all had different meals but the fried chicken and waffles stood out the most. The burgers we're authentic too and... More

Conveniently located off McKinney Ave, this restaurant is the perfect place to meet friends for a sweet treat, brunch, or a late lunch. I highly recommend the RASPBERRY CHIPOTLE CHICKEN sandwich. DELISH! I ordered this as a lunch combo with the sauce on the side and the CRUNCHY GARDEN SALAD.

We had another great brunch at Breadwinner's. Creative egg dishes were flavorful and my coffee cup was kept full!

Possibly a great dish: deep fried southern chicken, Belgian waffles with jalapeno and cheese with a hot sauce and creamy sauce with sweet maple syrup. Problem was 1. chicken was soggy (even where they had not soaked it with sauce) 2. Waffles were soggy 3. Waffles were stodgy. Given that I was in Belgium a few weeks ago I think... More

I have been going to Breadwinners at various locations for over 15 years. This is the original and still the best in my humble opinion-maybe it is the ambience in this century old building with the feel of New Orleans. Maybe it is the sweets case that you are subjected to before being seated that you can't get out of... More

Go early; we waited over an hour on a Saturday to be seated. They opened up the bar area which helped. Paying $12 for a ho hum mimosa. Breakfast was good but waitress was slow to bring out creamer, etc when asked. Granted, we had been seated upstairs in a corner. Overall, it was a good brunch. Coffee was robust.

Walked in, "just one?" Guy scrambles for menus and seats me in the most awkard place. Server, with 2 waters, "when is she joining you?" Worst table, dismissuve service. I would have done full entree if I wasn't so uncomfortable. Not going back.

We really liked the neighborhood and vibe of the cafe, and we were really looking for a more low key style. But, maybe too much on the low key. Our glassware and silverware was dirty. We had a table on the porch area, which was very cool and fun...but, the wobbly table was annoying. I know that it's hard to... More
