Benjy’s on Washington Avenue: clearly a weekend hotspot
If you’re looking for a hotspot for the weekend, then Benjy’s is definitely a place to go to. This restaurant serves food and drinks all day and all week, but is mainly known for its weekend brunches. That probably explains why not making a reservation resulted in a bit of a wait. We were clearly not the only one with this idea!
But I must say that it was certainly worth the (short) wait; I now understand where the name Famous French Toast comes from. Besides the french toast, you can order the Farmer’s Breakfast, Fish & Grits or one of their other brunch specialties. Also, don’t forget to pair it with their white peach or blood orange mimosas or the incredible champagne mojito. The tasty food and drinks combined with the trendy interior, relaxed patio and buzzing vibe make it a great place to catch up with family and friends.
