Breakfast Spot

“Rooster is great for families. It gets wildly popular on weekends for brunch, but you can check into the wait list via Yelp. Known for creative crepes, but there's a nice selection of alternatives, such as the St. Louis slinger, biscuits and gravy and even a lunch menu. If you like a cocktail with your brunch, you'll be very pleased with the menu. For the savory fans, choose from several takes on the bloody mary - my favorite is the bloody bull, which is prepared with beef broth and a smoked salt & beef jerky rim. I like that you can choose a small or large, and the garnishes don't disappoint. Sweeter cocktails abound, such as my non-bloody favorite, the sunburnt white russian. ”
