Talula brunch. Please share your thoughts...

I'm probably taking my family to Talula for brunch on Mother's Day but I wanted to here some thoughts about it from those that have recently been. All of the posts I've seen are at least a few years old, so any more recent reviews/critiques would be great (what's served, is it fresh, how's the service, what would you recommend, etc...).
Thanks for your time.

  1. Talula's brunch is a combination of buffet style and individual service. Buffet usually features your usual stuff (belgian waffles, french toast, etc.), a few lunch-type items (something roasted and carved, a fish item, pasta, etc.), plus a pretty broad selection of various cold salads, good smoked salmon, and lots of good sweets. Plus you can order egg dishes to order, including a nice benedict and an egg & chorizo sandwich. It is not a luxe, completely over-the-top brunch, but it is usually not priced like one either (on normal days its $29 - 1/2 for kids) - though I'm not sure what pricing they're doing for mother's day. Nice to sit outside on the patio.

    1. I actually did Talula for brunch last mother's day and it was very nice. Same spread as Frod described, i remember there being a carved beef and carved turkey, and all that other stuff as well. The made to order egg dishes were also very good and the dessert spread is delicious. The price is right and they have an outdoor seating area as well.
