5Sunday Brunch

Sunday, Jan 7
All over Bucks County and NJ!

When it’s cold, it’s all the more reason to sleep in a little late and bundle up as you venture off to Sunday brunch. And there are plenty of options in scenic Bucks County and across county lines in New Jersey. What are you in the mood for? A classy brunch with mimosas and small plates? A “Hungry Man/Woman” with three kinds of meat? Or maybe just a classic egg sandwich (or pork roll if you’re in Jersey)? Here’s a few popular, local spots you need to check out.

You know who else is serving brunch? Karlton’s Cafe in Quakertown. Bucks County Taste talked to the owner and chef of the restaurant/cafe, who discussed his love for local and fresh dishes. Read the full story here!
