Best brunch

Jane’s on the common, 2394 Robie, 431-5683

It’s a Best Brunch repeat for sophomore jane’s on the common. What makes this brunch so popular might have something to do with the food—things like smoked salmon eggs Benedict on sweet potato biscuits, or the irresistible ricotta pancakes. On the day I spoke with owner Jane Wright, she told me that people had been sitting on the steps since just after 9am, waiting for the 9:30am opening. Wright calls it “magic since the day the doors opened, it’s a busy happy time…that has restored my faith in humanity.” Perfect for an intimate brunch with a friend or two, Wright says, “twos and fours are perfect.”
