Brunching in Silicon Valley

Brunch... the best meal of the weekend. Especially after a night of debauchery!

The Village Pub

Our plans for a outdoor picnic lunch atop Monte Bello were scrapped as Easter Sunday turned out to be cold and stormy. To make up for it, I decided to treat ourselves to a decadent three course special Easter brunch at The Village Pub, which was conveniently on our way to Thomas Fogarty. First off, this...

Straits Restaurant - Santana Row

I have to give owner and chef Chris Yeo lots of praise for his hospitality and great service when he's at this location. I love both the dining and lounge atmosphere here more than all the other Straits. Dancing is fun here especially when DJ Aaron E or DJ JoJo are on the decks. It's just too bad they have to...

Wine Cellar

One of my favorite outdoor brunch spots in downtown Los Gatos. Wine Cellar has a really nice patio that is perfect for dining outside on warm days and nights. Great weekend brunch menu with a variety of dishes that also include a pastry and fruit buffet....

Aqui Cal-Mex

Cal Mex, Fresh Mex, whatever you want to call it... I like it. Great brunch, lunch and dinner - but make sure you have a swirl with it. Sometimes I just like chillin' at their Saddle Bar with an industrial strength margarita or three, and munching on some chips and guac. Don't let that margarita machine...

Top Nosh

While I do enjoy a delicious brunch on the weekends, sometimes I just feel like having a small bite to eat. Top Nosh Cafe had just what I was looking for. They specialize in savory pies, but I'd liken them to empanadas instead. Because when I think of pies, I think of pot pies, and these were semicircular...

LB Steak

Amazing brunch spot on Santana Row! There were so many things that caught my eye as I went down the menu, including the vanilla brioche french toast and salmon hash with poached eggs. Then it was between the NY Roast French Dip and the New England lobster roll. The $17 lobster roll won, and I'm so happy I...

Los Gatos Cafe Downtown

One of the busiest brunch spots in downtown Los Gatos. My friends and I decided to have brunch here at 11am. There was a 30 minute wait, which was not bad at all. We got seated outside, which was great because it was nice and sunny. The umbrellas kept us nicely shaded while we enjoyed our enormous meal. I...

VILLAGE California Bistro & Wine Bar

I had some scrumdiliumptious California Eggs Benedict with Canadian Bacon on puff pastries and the most delicious crisp golden potatoes that would make you fall hard off of a no-carb diet. Brunch at Village Bistro is awesome. Add a couple splits of champagne (those little bottles are only $3 more)...

Bill's Cafe

Great outdoor patio in the front, great owner and servers, but the best thing about Bill's is their greasy spoon big breakfasts! Get the Mexicali Benedict if you're a fan of carnitas. It's my favorite item on the menu. And if you're feeling aggressive, get a shot of tequila in addition to one of their...

Cafe San Jose

Finally, a great spot in Willow Glen that serves breakfast all day long! I don't know why it's taken me so long to come here, but I'm glad I finally did! It's tucked away in a little strip mall full of random mom and pop shops and we've driven past it hundreds of times. This little cafe has a real...
