Bread Winners?

I am planning on going to Bread Winners for brunch this Sunday. I have never been. Which location would you recommend? Thanks for the help.

    The one on McKinney in Uptown has a really great garden area in the center of the restaurant. This is the one we go to for brunch a lot.

      The Plano one is new so may have some teething problems.

        I like the one in Uptown better than the one in Inwood Village (on Lover's Lane).

          Tried the Plano one for lunch on a Wed or Thurs, got there around 11:30 and there was already a line, I'd wait until the newness wears off to go there again. Ate at the bar and didn't check out the rest of the restaurant, but they were screaming out names for the people waiting and if they didn't respond to them on the second try, skipped them. That wouldn't be fun at brunch. Food was good, service ok.

            We tried the Uptown location for brunch yesterday, Sun. 10/7. I really liked the place. The menu was extensive, the service was fast and friendly and the food was much better than average. All in all a pleasant experience. Thanks for the help.

          I prefer the McKinney location. On another note, I feel the kitchen has much better success with their sweet dishes than the savory one. Each time I have ordered an egg dish, I was tanatlized by the menu description and disappointed in the execution. My hands-down favorite is the banana bread French toast.

            Personally, I have tried the Plano one twice now...both times for lunch...So, haven't they been open long enough to have worked out the bugs? Both lunches were very, very disappointing in terms of the food...Only the bread basket did not disappoint...I remember a Bread Winners years ago that was a delicious dining experience...Hmm...How times have changed...
