Blackberry Custard French Toast

Bread pudding redesigned into French toast is the secret behind Wilma & Frieda’s Blackberry Custard French Toast. It starts with brioche bread layered in a pan with blackberries and then is drenched in vanilla custard. After it bakes and cools, it’s sliced and seared, drizzled with blackberry sauce and sprinkled with powdered sugar. The result: the best of both worlds! The sweet and tangy berry sauce complements crispy golden edges. Adding a side of bacon to dip in the blackberry sauce is a pro move we highly suggest!

Mark’s Short Rib Eggs Benedict

Mark’s Short Rib Eggs Benedict is a brilliant spin on your classic eggs benny, bringing this staple breakfast dish to a new level. Poached eggs are waiting to explode atop house-braised and -pulled short ribs, which is piled on made-from-scratch English muffins and topped with peppery arugula. The housemade hollandaise sauce is rich and creamy with a hint of lemon poured over juicy, tender beefy morsels of ribs. The only thing that might improve this dish is washing it down with a spicy bloody mary or two!


Kim’s Banana Caramel French Toast

Decadent and sweet, Kim’s Banana Caramel French Toast is thick-cut from soft brioche bread, dipped in egg batter, grilled, drenched in homemade salted caramel, layered with banana and drizzled with sour cream. The toast has a delicate crunch on the outside but opens to a soft and rich center. Bananas, caramel and sour cream combine to create a medley of flavors and textures. This amber-colored stack is a rich indulgence that pairs well with an iced cold brew coffee or even a bubbly mimosa!

Pop Tart

The pop tarts at Wilma & Frieda are far superior to those frosted squares you might have eaten from foil packaging as a kid. The sturdy crust has a gentle crumble and a reserved flavor, letting the fruit filling and the frosting take the spotlight. The most popular flavor is the blueberry lemon, and each is made in-house, right down to the sweet and flavorful fruit filling. They’re perfect for on-the-go with your morning latte or as a brunchy appetizer! But get there early if you want one; they sell like hotcakes!



Chef Chad’s Biscuits and Gravy

Chef Chad’s Biscuits and Gravy is the epitome of comfort food, and this dish smells just as good as it tastes! Pecanwood bacon sets this dish apart, but also in the gravy are tender bits of sausage and white gravy piled on homemade biscuits. The crumbly biscuits soak up the buttery white gravy while the savory saltiness of sausage and bacon will have you licking the plate! Order the house potatoes with it, and you’ve got a match made in brunch heaven.
