Eat up! There’s nothing better than fresh-squeezed orange juice, crispy bacon and pancakes as fluffy as pillows. Thankfully, there are lots of great local breakfast/brunch spots around. Here are just a few that local brunchers have to check out.
The brunch at Vickery Park is perfect for a relaxing start to the day. For Pecan Waffles or Chilaquiles (two eggs, fried corn tortillas, Queso Fresco, red onions, avocado and epazote ancho chile sauce) Vickery Park, right in lovely downtown Plano, is the perfect place to go.
