Brunch in Cleveland is about two things: feasting on the most delicious late-morning offerings from the class of our culinary scene and of course, taking the edge off — whether you’re recovering from that epic karaoke set you slayed last night thanks to a little “liquid courage,” or just steeling yourself for the workweek to come.
Your drink of choice isn’t any mere beverage. It’s a statement. Passersby will evaluate you — maybe even outright judge you — based on the glass you’re tilting back with your stuffed French toast. So, when it comes to brunch, there are really two beverages that rule the day: the Bloody Mary and the mimosa.
Which one are you?
