Here’s a word I haven’t heard in a while, brunch. Between fatherhood and the current pandemic, I haven’t been able to really make it out on a Sunday morning to enjoy one of my favorite past times. Fortunately, we had some family who were anxious as well to make it out and we headed over to Yaya’s Eurobistro in Bradley Fair.

Sunday Brunch from 9am – 2pm
With COVID-19 going on, YaYa’s no longer has their Sunday brunch buffet. While I highly enjoyed their buffet as it was one of my favorites, I figured it was still a nice Sunday morning to sit on their patio.
The new Sunday brunch menu can be done à la carte with their salads and pizzas. There was also an all-inclusive section where you could choose one item on their menu and enjoy all-you-can-eat of that particular item, at least that’s how it was explained to us. If you chose the all-inclusive section, you were also given sticky cinnamon buns, a beverage and assorted mini desserts afterwards.
Our table went through two orders of sticky cinnamon buns. I mean, how could you not?
Our group covered both the à la carte section along with the all-inclusive portion. Half of us ordered the Chicken BLT Pizza and the Cobb Salad. It didn’t even dawn on me to ask if they enjoyed their food but I heard no complaints.
We went with the Denver cast iron frittatas which was an egg casserole of black forest ham, bell peppers, caramelized onions, and cheddar cheese. We also ordered the pork salsa verde.
Both meals were pretty good. I had the latter of the two and loved the salsa verde that came with the dish. I had to ask for an extra side of it to dip everything I ate in it. It was sweet yet tangy with a bit of heat. The only downside of my meal was the pork was slightly on the dry side.
Even though both of our breakfast items were in the all-inclusive section, we didn’t ask for a second plate as we were too full and had to make sure to save room for dessert.
And we definitely ended our meal on the (sugar) highest of notes. There was a bit of everything from crème brûlée to cheesecake to chocolate. My absolute favorite by far was the key lime cheesecake. Oh. My. Gosh. Two small pieces was not enough. I could have had at least 15-20 more.
Overall, we had a nice little time at YaYa’s. The service was wonderful and the ambience on the patio was phenomenal.
The all-inclusive brunch portion probably was a little much for us especially with our appetites. Having the same thing with their all-inclusive offering would have been overkill on the same meal. We would have much preferred an à la carte menu of breakfast items. It stinks the buffet is gone, but we completely understand they were trying to have some form of it around.
Mark my word though, once this is all over with and their Sunday Brunch Buffet is back we will 100% return again.
Here’s their menu:
