When you’re a breakfast and brunch only kind of place, it’s important to offer all three of the following categories: omelet, benedict, and pancake. At Snooze, the omelets are perfectly fine and the benedicts are strong, but the pancakes are incredible - with varieties ranging from peanut butter cup to pineapple upside-down cake. There is always a long wait, so put your most Type A friend in charge of getting your name down early. The atmosphere (at both locations) is forgettable, but it’s OK. There’s only room in your brain for pancake memories.
