Birch & Barley: Best of Breakfast and Brunch 2012

One of our favorite things at this beer-obsessed hot spot is pastry chef Tiffany MacIsaac’s breads, and her work is front and center at its excellent brunch. We wish we could indulge in pecan-studded brioche sticky buns, warm and oozing dark caramel, every weekend. A thick patty of sausage and fried egg rests in a gorgeous, soft crème fraîche biscuit. And fried chicken and Belgian waffles are a good bet if you can’t decide between sweet and savory. A short list of worthy (beer-free) cocktails includes an assertive Bloody Mary and a brightly flavored fruit punch. Low lighting and strong air conditioning make it easy on folks who have had too long a night. Sunday 11 to 3.
