How To Do Brunch Right In Eugene

How To Do Brunch Right In Eugene

Hello darlings!

I can’t tell you how excited I am that it’s finally sunny out! Two weeks ago my friend Guisou came to visit me and I wanted to pick the perfect brunch itinerary while she was here. So here’s a guide on how to do brunch right in Eugene.

We started our Saturday morning by walking around the Saturday Market. With warmer temps it’s a must! Once our stomachs were ready for some yummy grubs we headed out to 5th Street. I HAD to show here the place I spend my most time at. I could show her where I bought my favorite wine and rummage through the flower shop before heading to get a bite.

My go-to is always Marché as it’s in prime location when so many other things you can do afterward. While I’ve been to Marché many times and typically order either the lox plate which is divine or the classic eggs Benedict (the summer Benedict is also amazing) I wanted to spice things up a bit.

I’m kind of a firm believer in kinda making brunch your own if they have the ingredients. One of the many reasons I love Marché is because it’s a farm-to-table style restaurant and their service is always great. I decided to mix my two loves: lox and Benedict. While this is not a menu item, I asked our server if this was something they could do and with no hesitation she said they could definitely do that.

If you love lox as much as I do this was truly an experience. I literally sat there thinking “why did this just dawn on me now and why haven’t I been ordering this the entire time! Their drinks are also really delicious so I went with a classic mimosa because it’s the weekend (duh!)

As far as what to wear to Marché I kept it trendy casual by wearing a Zara blouse, distressed jeans from Frame Denim which I literally can’t stop wearing and my new pair of Via Spiga booties that I got on MAJOR sale at the rack. Unlike what I’m used to in LA, most places in Eugene are pretty laid-back so as long as you look put together you’re good to go.

So who’s ready for my amazing creation of LOX EGGS BENNY? Scroll down to see the masterpiece.


After having brunch, we walked around the market and had a glass of wine at Sweet Cheeks tasting room.

If you’re ever in Eugene and need a place to have some yummy brunch this is your place to go.

How do you like to make brunch your own? Do you have your own favorite place you always go to?

    Nothing beats a lovely meal with a good friend! Sounds like you had a lovely time!

  • I love brunches with friends too, that’s like the best meal of the day! We have marche here too, and I always love their rosti (potato pancake!) I haven’t tried it for brunch, but maybe I will now, such a good idea – your eggs benedict looks divine!

  • Sounds like the perfect Saturday!! Get to hang out with your friend in the Saturday market and have the perfect brunch at such a lovely brunch place on a warm weather day! It’s been so long since I have seen the sun on my side 🙁 It has been raining everyday >< Praying for the sun to come sooner.

  • So wonderful that you got to send some sunshine time with your friend Guisou in Eugene! I’m such a fan of weekend markets! It was one of my favorite things to do when I lived on the coast! Marché sounds phenomenal! Any place that has a really good Benedict I’m always a fan of! Farm to table is a must and lox and benedict sounds even more phenomenal! I haven’t had a mimosa in so long BUT we are going on vacation soon and I’m sure to enjoy some yummy brunches! Your outfit it too cute for a weekend causal market and brunch! Love the top!

  • I love brunching and this place looks so yummy. I think it’s great that it has such a key location to do stuff after brunch and walk off all that food. =) The eggs benedict looks amazing and I love that it is farm to table. Eating a yummy brunch and knowing it’s healthy makes it so much better. I have been wanting those Frame ripped jeans for a while now and totally need to get them after seeing them on you! Great brunch outfit babe! Hope you had fun with your friend! xoxo, Christine

  • One of my favourite things in life is Brunch, I mean you get the goodness of breakfast without having to wake up that early LOL.
    I love finding great brunch places, and this place has AMAZING presentation. I always order the egg benedict so I know a good one when I see it!
    Sounds like you had a great day – good food, good company, and a little exploration after! What more can a girl ask for haha.


  • Love your brunch outfit babe!
    And what a great idea to create your own eggs benedict! I would have never thought of that!
    I’m a huge fan of eggs benedict as well and that’s usually my go-to if I want something savory or french toast if I want something sweet!
    Thanks for sharing where to eat in Eugene 🙂

  • Wait what! That Lox Eggs Benny looks so yummy delish, but what exactly is a Lox hehe? I’ve never heard of Lox before, so obviously I need to try Marché next time I’m in Eugene. And then customize it to Lox Eggs Benny. I’m glad you had fun with your friend on Saturday. Mimosas followed by wine tasting sound lovely. Love your very casual and chic outfit for brunch too!

  • Thanks for showing us how to do brunch in Eugene. That lox and eggs benedict look so fab and are right up my alley as I’m a huge brunch lover too. I actually have a couple of places I go to regularly, but then I also love discovering new places so every now and then I “cheat” on my regular spots and go exploring new places instead. I’d love to try Marché out if I’m ever around. 🙂

  • Sounds like a perfect day. Wish I was there with you!

    This place sounds amazing and food looks soo good. I loved how you choosed your own brunch, I still cant stop looking at it, it looks so delicious <3

    Thanks for sharing,

  • Oh my god. I am literally lying in bed wishing I had some food in front of me and this is making my mouth water. Eggs benedict is probably my favourite breakfast and this just looks so damn delicious.

    Loving those jeans – they really do look incredibly comfy!

  • To be honest my ultimate favourite thing I like to do in Panama is try every single brunch!!! Love brunching specially with my girlfriends.
    Late breakfast is my favourite meal of the day and love the mimosas hehehe This place looks amazing and I’m sure you and your friend enjoyed a lot.
    The eggs benedict look amazing!


  • I think I like the idea of brunch more so than actual brunch. I love hanging out and chatting with friends but I wake up early so I can’t wait that long to eat LOL. That said, this looks delish! I need that lox eggs Benny RIGHT NOW! And your booties are adorable -I love the Rack. I’d be living in them too! Super cute brunch look too!
