The pastry team of Kate Holowchik and Clairemarie Bergstrom shines at brunch, ensuring the waffles are fluffy and the donuts are weirdly, indescribably delicious. On the savory side, check out the maple glazed pork belly, served with creamy grits, smoked cheddar, and a sous vide egg. Feeling veggie? Try the fried Brussels sprout hash, served with feta, sunny-side-up eggs, and fermented poblano aioli. House cocktails are on-point, and the 22-ounce Bloody Mary will leave you feeling all warm inside.
