I've had brunch and dinner at Le Bistro and enjoyed both very much but their omelettes and complimentary caesars (w/ the brunch menu) are what make brunch a must-have if you're in the area on a weekend morning.

We love this restaurant for its great ambiance and good food. I recommend their weekend brunch, which incudes a Mimosa. Unlike so many restaurants, the noise level is kept to a level where you can enjoy a conversation with your fellow diners.
