Some people use the weekend to check things off the honey-do list, while others like to chill out and enjoy the last moments of freedom before the week starts. However you spend your two-day sabbatical, one great way to enjoy it is by going out to brunch. Here are some places in Ames to get a late breakfast or early lunch.
Did you know the Filling Station has fuel for more than just your car? Fill up your belly on their delicious breakfast menu consisting of breakfast burritos, omelets, and pancakes. Their biscuits and gravy are worth getting up for, but use your time wisely, as they are open from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, and closed for brunch on Sundays.
Brunch and Provisions Lot F go together like chicken and waffles, which you can find on their weekend menu. Genius pairings such as a bagel and egg sandwich, salmon omelet, or black forest French toast are also offered for brunch. This amazing eatery is popular for good reason, so be sure to secure your spot on the waiting list!
Wash the weekend down with Morning Bell Coffee Roasters on Main Street. For the sweet-toothed, their locally roasted coffee pairs well with fresh pastries. Possibly the best-kept secret is their delicious Baklava. Shhhh…
Fancy a taste from across the pond? Ames’s very own Mucky Duck Pub serves English breakfast on Saturdays from 8 – 10 a.m. Try their tasty beans on toast, or venture their menu for brunch items such as a Scotch egg or pasty.
