Kasi recommended Punch Punch a long time ago but for some reason I never got around to going. Well, I should have gone earlier since I really enjoyed my brunch this past Sunday and since it’s close by, it’s the perfect safety spot. Punch isn’t going to blow your mind but they hit a couple of key points for a good brunch place:

1. Good Coffee – I hate letting a good brunch get spoiled by bad coffee. Punch not only serves a good tasting cup of coffee but refills your cup often.

2. Good Quick Breads – Most brunch spots offer muffins or a banana bread, or biscuits while you wait. Right after being seated, we were greeted with a basket of warm (extra points) mini-muffins. I tried a banana mini muffin and it was a good texture with real banana flavor.

3. Diverse Menu – Girls love brunch but that means we’ll also get bored of standard brunch menus. It’s always great to see some more innovative items or twists on the classics. For example, Punch lists a Lamb Burger, a Chorizo Hash, and Lobster Crawfish Roll (trying that next time).

4. Cooks Meat to Correct Temperature – I ordered the Hanger Steak and Eggs. I asked for medium rare and that’s what I got. Thank You! It came with 2 sunnyside eggs that were also perfect.

5. Good Sides – My Home Fries were nicely seasoned, small dice potatoes, proportionate to my plate. Sara had some great sweet potato fries (will definitely get those next time) that were crispy on the outside, soft on the inside, and a wonderful example of the sweet and salty combo.

6. Good Price – I always think of price in relation to the quality of the food, service, and decor. For $14.95 (includes coffee or tea, Bloody Mary, muffins, and entree), it’s a steal. It’s a nice looking place and the service was good.
