303 Magazine is hosting its final Pool Party this Sunday, August 10th at the Breakers Resort. If you feel like beginning your day with brunch and a mimosa before the Pool Party, 303 is giving you their top three choices of where to get brunch in the area. 

Where: La Merise, 2700 E 3rd Ave

Pros: La Merise, provides an upscale brunching experience. 

Cons: This isn’t an eggs and bacon kind of place. Be prepared to be offered a truly extraordinary brunch. 

La Merise offers traditional French cuisine, their selection of savory crepes is the perfect way to start the day. While La Merise doesn’t offer traditional American pancakes, their crepe parings more then make up for their lack of familiar food.


Where: Syrup, 300 Josephine St

Pros: Syrup has so many options to choose from. Whether you’re in the mood for sweet or savory, there is something for everyone. 

Cons: While the syrup and butter parings are fun I wonder if it is really necessary. Maple syrup is a classic breakfast staple for a reason. 

Syrup has a menu that balances sweet and savory options to give everyone something to choose from. If you’re looking to go all out and indulge try out the Nutella french toast. The bread is stuffed with Nutella and bananas for the perfect combination. Pair this decadent dish with a mimosa for the ultimate indulgence. 


Where: Snooze, 700 N. Colorado Blvd. 

Pros: Snooze is the perfect brunch spot. With a friendly staff and killer coffee it’s hard to find a better brunch spot. 

Cons: Because Snooze is so popular, the wait is insane. Almost not worth it, but who am I kidding, it’s definitely worth it.

 Whether you order it or not ask about the Pancake of the Day. Each Snooze location comes up with their own Pancake of the Day everyday and the concoctions are to die for delicious. Snooze pairs fresh ingredients with an innovative menu to give you exactly what you’re searching for. I personally love Juan’s Breakfast Tacos. It’s a light enough dish that you won’t feel overfull and sick during the pool party.
