BRUNCH, IN OUR OPINION, is the best (and most important) meal of the day. Not only is it a treat, as it happens only so often, but there’s something for everyone. Be it pancakes for those craving something sweet or eggs Benedict for those fancying something a bit more savory, brunch caters to every person’s desires. Host your next event amidst syrup, coffee and bacon at one of these mouthwatering Twin Cities restaurants, and guests surely won’t be disappointed. Especially when mimosas are involved.
Serving alcohol at a meeting or event tends to be a boon for guests, but it can also add stress for planners. Luckily, Complete Beverage Service, a Minneapolis-based beverage company, has spent more than 20 years perfecting the art of beverage catering in the metro area.

To create a floral masterpiece for a customer, owner Amy Backman sits down with each client to dig in and really figure out what they’re looking for. "We like to customize," says Backman. "We don’t have a cookie-cutter design template. We love collaborating."
Hot off a recent opening, Buddha Kitchen and Lounge serves this refreshing cocktail in their Eat Street location. The restaurant, which has room for 144 diners, features Asian fusion cuisine and live house music performances. With its use of fresh fruits and vegetables and crisp taste, the Sweet Pea is the perfect spring drink for you to sip while sitting on Buddha’s patio and forgetting the bitter cold of winter.
No matter the budget, it's all in the details.
