Quick Bites: Brunch-Hounds Rejoice!

Posted By on Thu, Sep 22, 2016 at 8:54 AM

Be honest. If you could pair an awesome meal with a cocktail before noon—without getting labeled a boozehound—what are the chances you’d do it?

Judging by the large number of loyal customers at one of Tucson’s long-time best brunch spots, Prep & Pastry, lots of people would, as a treat or as a regular tradition. At peak weekend hours, the Campbell location (3073 N. Campbell Ave.) is packed.

Lucky for brunch-lovers across the city (OK, mostly central and the east side, depending on how far you’ll drive), Prep & Pastry is one of several locally owned restaurants to expand this summer, recently opening a new location on Grant Road near Wilmot at 6450 E Grant Road, Unit 160. 

It opened in July to huge fanfare on Instagram, where it showcased beautiful blueberry-topped bagels, pretty pancakes and “Prep’s potatoes,” as well as colorful cocktails with a wide assortment of tasty garnishes. Oh, and the people in those IG pics (staff and customers) weren’t hard on the eyes, either. Online reviews affirm that the place’s food and drinks taste as good as they photograph—certainly on par as the food at the original Prep & Pastry.

So if you’ve found yourself waiting around too long at the Campbell P&P—but you love its tasty food, polite service and hip atmosphere—check out the new east of there. (Heaven forbid you go to a diner—according to Prep & Pastry, “Brunch without booze is just a sad, late breakfast.”)
