I was in town for the Iron Bowl and we stopped for Sunday brunch at the Bred pub. The building is a beautifully restored property on Railroad Ave and part of downtown Opelika's restoration in it's new arts district. What a change since I was a student at Auburn twenty years ago. The restaurant has a lot of space and a bar both upstairs and down. The reclaimed heart pine floors add to warmth of the interior. There is open table seating and some booths spread out into three separate seating areas. The place didn't really seem to Irish to me but that wasn't an issue for me. We had the Rueben, the breakfast brunch special and an order of stone ground grits. Everything was good. The Rueben was spectacular, one of the best I've ever had with really good bread. The grits the same way. It's nice to see real grits done well. They have a good beer and liquor selection and I heard they do a Sunday service upstairs. I will definitely eat here again.
