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.
