“Best Breakfast in Joplin!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2014 via mobile

The Bruncheonette has been a favorite of mine since it opened. The owners are very nice & really passionate about what they do. The food is always excellent and the atmosphere is great. You gotta try the poutine!

“Most heavenly brunch ever!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014 via mobile

Literally. I had some great brunches but this place knocks it out of the park. We actually ordered two extra plates just because we couldn't choose just 2 dishes. We had the pulled pork pancakes, 3 different bennies and some amazing lil doughnuts with balsamic soaked strawberries and a champagne glaze. Even the coffee was great. I'm now tempted to drive to Joplin every Saturday morning just to eat at this diamond in the rough. The only change I would make, is that they move to a larger location. It's becoming quite popular and harder to find a seat. If you're in Joplin and you miss it...
you really missed out.

“Outstanding Concept”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

The food at Bruncheonette was outstanding and the selection is very eclectic and unique for it's location in Joplin, Mo and I am a huge fan of the concept. This is not a location for the price sensitive looking for a cheap breakfast experience and the lack of seating availability and a seating protocol may hurt them if they fail to address. The menu offerings and employees have attracted a hipster/wannabees following, but hopefully their "tude" will not scare off the unpretentious apolitical types that just really appreciate Bruncheonete's food. Owner made the rounds which was nice, but "mixing it up" with the customers not really his strength. Keep it humble Bruncheonette and you will do great things!

“Bad Experience ”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2014 via mobile

Very cute place. Great looking menu. When we walked in it was busy. Walked up to the counter to order. A friendly woman was working and my husband asked her a question regarding one of their items. She turned around to ask one of the gentlemen behind her. We are unsure if this was a cook or an owner but the man was extremely rude to her. Proceeded to yell and talk down to her in front of the entire restaurant (tiny place). Made us very uncomfortable and disgusted. We decided then and there we wouldn't be eating there. Horrible taste in our mouth before we even took a bite. Hope anyone that goes finds this gentleman in a better mood.
