Need *the best* brunch in Providence.

  1. Venda for lunch very reasonable fresh and clean. or there are a couple of places on the Plaza there for lunch espically if the weather is nice. The city is the city not much there.

        1. I am tired of people trashing the city ALL the time. There is plent ythere if you get out of the rut your mindset is in...

          Seeing as how all the places listed below are in Providence, I consider them all part of the city. The city is not that big. These are all places I have gone to with great results.

          West Side:
          Loie Fuller


          East Side:

          Red Stripe
          Z Bar
          Amy's Cafe

          Liberty Elm

          1. re: basachs

            Have to strongly agree with basachs on both fronts, both the choices and on attitudes towards the city. I totally don't understand the first poster's attitude.

            That said, I think that Nick's, Julian's, and the Modern Diner in Pawtucket near the Providence line are kind of in a class all by themselves, with everyone else following. Nicks may actually be one of the the best brunches I've ever had.

              I've been to Z Bar for both lunch and dinner (granted, not brunch) and the food there was always mediocre

              1. re: malyna

                They have surprisingly great pizza at Z.

            2. Nick's by far is the best brunch in Providence......Unfortunately there are only a handful of tables so you could be waiting for a table. if there is a long wait Julians is always good and it's right down the street.
