Best Fancy Breakfast

Big Sky Bread Co.

Some weekends you need a breakfast that’s more than the standard diner eggs-and-plate but less than a full-blown brunch. Something with maybe a little flair, just a tad fancy—after all, it’s Sunday—but still fast and cheap—after all, you have a life to lead. On those mornings we head to Big Sky Bread Co., which artfully combines the best of both worlds. There are always tables available (our biggest brunch peeve: hour-plus waits just to be seated) and the moderately priced food arrives quickly, the attributes we most value in a diner. But then the French toast is made from airy challah bread and comes heaped with berries and kiwi, and the fluffy, tender omelets have upscale fillings like roasted veggies or chorizo—menu amenities usually reserved for fancier brunch fare. Minus, alas, mimosas—there’s no liquor license—but otherwise Big Sky’s breakfast comes pretty close to having it all.
