This organic cafe knows how to do brunch! I’ve been known to lose track of time when at bars, but this was a brunch that lasted 3-1/2 hours. Let’s be for real, though … how could anyone turn down brunch, nay, brunch with bottomless drinks for a reasonable price? Definitely not me.
While I waited a hot 2 minutes by the front door for the host to acknowledge me, he was very friendly when he did and led me to a plush booth toward the back of the blue-and-white restaurant. This restaurant has been host to many-a work dinners and various other meals and events, and I seem to have a completely experience each time.
On a Monday they offer a free 2-course meal (full servings, no kidding) and it will only cost you the tip. Though you can get caught with this by ordering drinks and dessert, it’s still a fantastic deal. Get one sfuzzi and your night is made – it’ll get you festive.
Sundays are brilliant because you can mix-and-match. Having to choose one drink to be your bottomless choice is almost like choosing a husband … one flavor for an entire meal? No, thanks. Luckily Villa O is liberal with their choices and their portions.
The food at Villa O is very good and, as I mentioned, the portions are large so an entree can fill you up and leave you enough to take home for a midnight snack. The bread, though, is the crowning glory of this restaurant. I could be happy for the rest of my life with their bread basket and bottomless choices.
Drink strength: 3 (except for the sfuzzi which gets a 4.5!)
