Understaffed, but good

There were only 2 waitresses for the entire restaurant, plus they were doing their own busing to boot! It took over 20 minutes to get our order taken. Another 30 minutes for our food to come. Never offered a refill for our coffee in the 30 minutes we were waiting for our meal, even though asking... read more

When we walked in, we waited forever to be sat even though half the restaurant was empty. I'm not sure where the host and servers were. We finally got sat and waited 20 minutes for the server to come over and give us menus and take our drink order. We had to claim to the bus boy 2 times before... More

Sorry for your review. This must have been for a different Brunchery since we did not have a bus boy on that day. As well that we did not have anyone leave due to service. Stop in to the Brunchery on MacDill Ave. Serving Tampa since 1985. I am sure you, along with the over 1000 weekly cutomers, will enjoy... More

Small place with good service and very good food. We had the eggs benedict and the crepe. I would recommend adding some of that lovely hollandaise to the crepe innards, but everything was still very tasty.

Breakfast and service were "okay". Food didn't have much flavor. The server was nice but forgot a few things that were ordered by the group.

Della, thanks for stopping in. I'm not sure what entree you had that did not have much flavor. We have some very spicy items, very flavorful items and more sedate items for that crowd.

Terrific little breakfast joint on South MacDill Ave. Located a few spots down from Pane Rustica, and shares same parking lot. Brunchery is really good breakfast, so go there first and then waddle down to Rustica for lunch!!

We've eaten at the Brunchery multtiple times over the past several yrs (w/the most recent being July 2015) and have never been disappointed. The omelet (whichever you choose) is always great and the eggs benedict never disappoint. The wait staff is always extremely courteous and prompt. We absolutely love this place!
