JC’s Hot Bagels
JC's is an amazing breakfast spot that serves delicious bagels. The cream cheeses are also amazing, especially the garlic and herb variety which is very flavorful.
My favorites have been the jalapeño cheddar and cheddar & herb bagels. If you haven't tried JC's yet, you definitely should.
The staff and owner, Joe, at JC's are incredibly welcoming and provide an amazing dining experience. It's not just the good food that makes this place special - it's the whole experience.
I will definitely be coming back. Just be prepared for a busy spot - try to go early to beat the rush.

Benedict Eatery in Burlington is a hidden gem located in The Village Square. A small restaurant with only around 20 tables, but it's worth the wait if it's full, as the food is exceptional.
The staff is friendly and welcoming, and they made excellent recommendations from the menu.
I had the Lorraine Benedict, served with three perfectly poached eggs on top of crispy premeal bacon and cheese on an English muffin.
Their hollandaise sauce was mouthwatering, and the accompanying home fries were seasoned and crispy. My partner had the Benedict Special, which included three eggs, sausage, bacon, a blueberry pancake, and a chocolate pancake. Everything was fresh and delicious.
In addition to the great food, the orange juice and coffee were freshly squeezed and made in-house. Overall, we had a wonderful experience at Benedict Eatery and will definitely be back.

Russell Williams Family Restaurant
I recently visited Russell Williams's for a Sunday brunch; let me tell you, it did not disappoint. This spot has been around since 1932, so you know they're doing something right.
The staff was friendly, and the menu had a great selection of classic breakfast and brunch dishes. I personally opted for the eggs benny, which was DELISH.
You can choose from options like premeal bacon, smoked salmon, or grilled cheese. And let me tell you, the portions are generous - I had to take half my sandwich home.
But it's more than just the breakfast and brunch that's worth trying at Russell Williams's. The fish and chips are also top-notch. Trust me, this is the place to go if you're suffering from a hangover and need some tasty, classic comfort food.
Overall, I highly recommend checking out Russell Williams's for brunch. The food is delicious, and the atmosphere is warm and welcoming. It's definitely worth a visit!

Lettuce Love Café
If you're in the Burlington area, you need to check out Lettuce Love for brunch. Whether you're vegan or not, there's something for everyone on the menu and it's all DELISH. Trust me, I'm a regular and I've loved every single thing I've tried.
The customer service at Lettuce Love is always friendly, and the atmosphere is cute and welcoming. It's definitely a destination spot for Sunday brunch.
If you're looking for vegan and gluten-free options, this is the place to go. My personal favorites are the nachos, power bowl (the tahini dressing is AMAZING), and chocolate banana smoothie is worth every penny.
Don't forget to check out their points program and other specials, like wing Wednesdays and the falafel bowl.
Trust me, if you're in the area, you won't be disappointed with Lettuce Love. I highly recommend weekend brunch and all the other tasty options on the menu.
