If you’re ever in South Granville or in the Main Street area looking for a quaint spot to enjoy a quality brunch, check out Caffe Barney. This little eatery’s two locations have an awesome menu with tons of options for all the classics, including the ability to make any omelette a scrambler with toast and hashbrowns. Barney’s Bennys don’t disappoint either, and they even have a surf and turf variety available.
