I can’t believe summer is almost over! It literally flew by. The last few weeks have been crazy busy with starting a new job, writing for two different magazines and trying to make time for blogging. I took a break this past week (as some of you may have noticed) and it felt really refreshing to be able to have some alone time and catch up.
On Sunday, I went to brunch at a local spot in town called The Vintage, which is ALL about crepes (and fondue). Big plus, mimosas and Bellinis are $4 on Sundays. I have previously featured them before here, but this time was a little different as it’s summer which means we get to sit outside, enjoy the sunshine and sip on some refreshing drinks. You know, what summer is all about.
Instead of going for my typical eggs Benny on an English muffin, I decided to switch it up and be a little more adventurous and ordered a crepe Benny which was definitely not what I expected, but in a good way. I picked veggie sausage instead of ham as I wanted to try something completely new. It was the perfect portion – not too much, not too little. I wouldn’t say I loved the veggie sausage, it felt a little overwhelming. My friend Olivia got The Eugene, which is a breakfast omelette inside a crepe (seriously why haven’t I gotten this yet?!). She remembered ordering it last time and how good it was.
Since the weather was pretty hot I wore my new H&M dress as top with a pair of A&F shorts and Steve Madden sandals. I could essentially wear this dress two ways but I’ve styled it here as a top by making it more of an off the shoulder and tying it at the waist! Scroll down for some yumminess.

Honestly, out of all the places I’ve been to I’d say it’s the best outdoor brunch in town. I love their little side patio area. It feels really tranquil. There’s a side fountain running and there’s vines everywhere with a gorgeous wood door entrance. What’s there not to love? Other great outdoor brunch areas in Eugene are Lion & Owl, Marche, Studio One Cafe, Jazzy Ladies Cafe & Coffeehouse and Ambrosia (all of which I’ve featured at some point in time). It’s definitely a must before summer is over.
Where is your favorite outdoor brunch? Do you typically order the same thing or are you adventurous when picking a menu item?
