Beatrix brunch

Guests can visit the coffee bar for hand-crafted Beatrix Coffee Roasters drinks, a wide variety of house-made pastries and fresh-squeezed juices (revitalizing Power Greens, anyone?) to-go to soothe the late-night woes from the night before, or plan a sit-down weekday breakfast or weekend brunch to savor more time together. The Beatrix Parties & Events team can book a semi-private or private space for your whole guest list, and all you have to do is enjoy comfort food favorites with a healthful twist including Oven Baked Brioche French Toast, Green Chili & Cheese Deep Dish Quiche, Bacon, Cheddar & Egg Sandwich and more.
