Our 19 Favorite Brunch Dishes from 2018

Roost Breakfast Pizza / Photo x Adrianne Salmon

As we sit back and reflect on the past year, so many great meals and dishes come to mind. As brunch continues to have its moment in Western New York, we thought it would be fun to reminisce specifically on the most memorable brunch dishes we tried this year. Some may still be available, some may have been a seasonal special never to return again. Either way – 10/10 would recommend hunting them down and/or trying the next enticing special at these local restaurants. Happy brunching!

Disclaimer: This is a list of favorites from our experience over the past year. We certainly have not tried every brunch dish in WNY and don’t claim to. So take this for what it is – a list of inspo to kick your brunch adventures off on the right note in 2019.
