Brunch/lunch spots around Menlo Park or Edison NJ?

Any good lunch or brunch spots around Menlo Park or Edison NJ. Hi, low, and everything in between works for me.
I like the pantagis on 514, and if you happen to catch him at the right time, the wood burning pizza truck is supposed to be great (I've never been lucky enough to be over there when he is). I think houlihans is great for being a chain.
If the Bhan Mi place is still there on Old Post Road?
Here's a link to a list of places in Edison that was recently posted on another thread by a respected 'hound:
*edit: That didn't seem to work right. The list appears a couple posts above where the link takes you
Also, there are quite a few good Indian restaurants in that area. It's certainly worth a search of this Board and review of the threads, if that type of cuisine interests you.
Personally, if I was up there around Noon today, I'd go get a burger and/or a pork roll, egg & cheese from White Rose in Highland Park and eat 'em sitting on the hood of my car (the place is not what one would call "pretty") while drinking a can of cheap beer (like a local cop).
This place must be going downhill fast if I'm considered a respected member! LOL
I think this link will work better: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/9635...
If OP is impartial to cuisine for lunch/brunch, I would definitely suggest checking out one of the ethnic options in the area. Can't go wrong with the Indian/Asian fare... Keum Ho Jung and Chung Sol Bat started doing weekend lunch specials that are really good...I guess to compete with HMart. It's a wonderful thing.
Of course you can't go wrong with Dim Sum or an Indian lunch buffet coma.
Given that you are coming from Philadelphia, you will find the non-Chinese, non-Indian food in Edison to be relatively mediocre. You could try Wonder Seafood on Route 27. Its known for its Dim Sum. Otherwise I would recommend eating in New Brunswick.
Personally, I dont think there is much good brunch in that area at all.
Skylark is a diner, a good one none the less
Le Peep, doesnt have a liquor license so thats out for me.
I am a huge brunch fan and cant ever find much in that area. Tried New Brunswick too and not much.
Sorry, Im not much help but thats my $.02
