Brunch—like twilight, sporks, skorts, friends with benefits, and so many other things that make life worth living—is not quite one thing and not quite another. Celebrate everyone's favorite mutant mealtime with today’s Groupon: for $8 you get $16 worth of midday delights at The Brunchery. The Brunchery, named Best Brunch spot in the city by AOL City’s Best, is open daily from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.; this Groupon is not valid on Sundays.
The Brunchery's menu boasts an extensive selection of brunchable bites, offering everything from the traditional fast-breaking omelettes, pancakes, and crêpes to more-midday-appropriate meals of salads, sandwiches, and burgers. Start a morning sweetly with an order of the decadent cream-cheese-stuffed french toast, topped with creamy whipped cream and crumbly cinnamon crumbles ($7.79), or sample the savory Brunchery Benedict, which places poached eggs atop a ham-, mushroom-, and swiss-enhanced English muffin under a blanket of hollandaise ($7.59). Lunch fare, such as the burger melt on grilled rye ($5.99) or The Brunchery’s grilled grouper sandwich ($6.79), makes an ideal belly buffer for the eatery’s root-beer float ($2.79) or soy-based shakes ($2.59).
Brunch is that one glorious meal for which splurging and loitering are encouraged, and The Brunchery’s sunny yellow walls, homey décor, and top-notch service will make you want to spend the entire day eating, talking about eating, or drawing pictures of eating.

Prepare 1,000 lunches in less than 20 hours. That was the challenge posed for The Brunchery’s catering staff. The eatery’s experts met the daunting request, quickly assembling the hefty sandwiches that The Brunchery has perfected throughout its more than 25 years in business. When President George W. Bush came to Tampa, the White House called upon The Brunchery's catering. In addition to corned beef, grilled grouper, and shaved steak piled on deli rye bread and kaiser rolls, The Brunchery plies guests with half-pound burgers seasoned by chipotle mayo and dill pickles.
But as its name implies, the restaurant doesn’t just craft food for lunch; it’s possibly best known for its morning treats. Made-from-scratch hollandaise sauce for benedicts and golden pancakes have earned The Brunchery awards including Best Place for Breakfast/Brunch from readers of the South Tampa Community News in 2010. When NBC interviewed owner Greg Elliot, the feature zeroed in on the restaurant’s signature french toast, which mingles cream-cheese sauce, bananas, strawberries, and slivered almonds.
Guests devour this lavish creation and others while dining among the dining room’s decorative dishware, Coke bottles, and shelves. Many of the objects come from Greg’s family, such as a hutch his great-great-grandfather built in the 1800s, making guests feel as at home as a rabbit in a top hat.
