So. Stinking. Delicious. Hands down one of the best brunch places in any city I have ever been in. As well, quick and attentive service. A win/win!

Lovely service, food and priced okay. The only thing that I found challenging was that we went on a Friday when it was busy and the sound was loud. It's not very sound proof and found at times us having to really talk loud to one another. Other than that, great place.

The pate is made in house - including smoking their own mushrooms....it is absolutely delicious. As well, the Church Key is well located for an evening at the... More

If you're looking for a typical eggs benny kind of brunch, this is not your destination. But for creative, interesting new approaches to brunch, check the website menu for the brunch items that week. The ingredient combinations work excellently, and the portions are handsome - no-one left hungry. Charming service and a warm ambiance.
