Incredibly, there still aren't that many amazing options for brunch in CenPho, so I'm always on the lookout. This place offers it from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
Can't say I was terribly impressed, although I'd give it another shot because I don't live far away.
The bloody mary was weak, and the frittata was just basic -- tomatoes, spinach, artichokes, and feta. I'd compare it to something you'd get at a business hotel.
Honestly, the best think about brunch was the setting -- there's a nice patio out front, overlooking Central Avenue. Occasionally the light rail rumbles by, but otherwise, it's surprisingly peaceful. As an added bonus, I enjoyed a nice random chat with my colleague Sarah Fenske, who was out walking her adorable dog (she wrote about him in a recent column). It's the second time in the past few months that this has happened, so I have to love Cheuvront's just for that.
