Without a doubt THE best Sunday Brunch in all of Cincinnati can be found at Grand Finale and it's a great deal at $12.95 with all of the superb offerings, juice included, but coffee extra.

I love coming here for the food offerings, the casual elegance, the fresh juice, the excellent coffee and the Mimosas (champagne & orange juice cocktail). You can either come in dressed casually or you may dress to the nines. Lots of people show up celebrating birthdays, graduations, & anniversaries here!

The remarkable thing is that the owners/chefs are not professional chefs. They've traveled extensively and decided to recreate some of their favorite dishes in their restaurant and they've done a fabulous job in doing it.

They have been voted Best Chicken Dishes several times and indeed they should be! Their dishes are served with some of my favorite things: capers, artichoke hearts, asparagus tips - DIVINE!

The ambience is studied Victorian elegance with floral or striped patterned wallpaper & fabric covered ceilings. During the spring or summer try the outdoor terrace but be mindful of the bees.

Favorite Dish: Sunday Brunch is faboo!
My favorite thing on the buffet:
Cheese Garlic Grits
Quiches
Chicken Crepes
Fruit Salad
Eggs Benedict
Buttery Scrambled Eggs (I have never tasted better plain scrambled eggs - delicate & divine)

Lunch:
Penne from Heaven
Spunk's Famous Crabcakes
Mediterranean Salmon Salad

Desserts:
Limelight Pie - Key Lime Pie with the Hazelnut crust
Chocolate Cordial Pie - a mile high chocolate mousse pie
