3) Tap 42:
Every Saturday and Sunday, Tap is open early for a fun and reasonable brunch party. All of the menu items have an interesting twist, so you will never be bored with what you order. You will want to inhale the Spicy Salmon Tostones, but save room for bigger bites such as the White Chocolate Strawberry Pancakes or the Oven-baked Shrimp Mac & Cheese. One of the most popular items on the menu depicts brunch in a nutshell, The Hangover II (a sunny side up egg, smashed avocado, hash brown, white cheddar, smoked bacon, and truffle aioli on a toasted challah bun). Lighter orders are offered as well, like salads and sushi. Of course, Mary’s and mimosas are offered, however the selection of craft beer may tickle your fancy even more so. Once you’ve hit your limit, walk around the courtyard or go window shopping in the shops within the plaza.

The next town north of Boca Raton is Delray Beach, which also has many excellent brunch options. If you fancy to travel just a short trip, stop at these two great options:
This newer restaurant has many great features that make it special: a waterfront view, a spectacular brunch menu, and great staff. Drink bottomless mimosas or Mary’s while sitting on the intracoastal on a nice weekend morning starting at 11:00 am. “Che” is Argentinean slang for “friend”, and it certainly touches on its name. This new, cool spot has a menu that is neither too small nor too large and the quality is outstanding. The food at Che!!! Is fresh, tasty, and filing. The restaurant is located on Atlantic Avenue, the heart of Delray Beach, so there is much to do afterward as well. Even head to the beach down the road for an even nicer view than the one you had during brunch.
