I’ve been a longtime customer, before during my boozy brunch phase and now during I need 4 cups of coffee mom phase. We always feel welcomed here, which isn’t always the case when you dine out with a toddler. The food is always consistently great, along with the service. I always gets the eggs Benedict and my husband usually gets pancakes or French toast. This dinning experience he got the banana Nutella pancakes which he enjoyed, the only note is that he would have preferred plain bananas instead of cooked to brighten up the meal and not make it feel so heavy.

We always love coming to this brunch. Our wedding reception was at the Drake in 2009 so it’s very sentimental coming back. The food is great. The service even greater!
