At this beer-themed restaurant, Tiffany MacIssac's menu of sweet treats reads like the 7-Eleven snack aisle of our dreams"Hostess" cupcake, oatmeal cream pie. Must order: cashew "Snickers" bar.

Sure, you can get an omelet and French toast off of Birch & Barleys new brunch menu, but you can also order house-brined corned beef hash, fried chicken and waffles, and buffalo chicken flatbread.

Bitches Who Brunch love B&B's brunch. Try the house-made donuts - which includes a toffee-bacon donut (!).

Their brat burger may be one of the best burgers you'll ever eat. And it comes with their homemade mustard for the fries.

An upstairs/downstairs, beer-focused restaurant and gastropub. At Birch & Barley, order the cavatelli and flounder tartare; at Church Key, Tater Tots and charcuterie.

The Brt Burgera mix of veal, ground beef, and porklends this burger its signature bratwurst flavor. It's a meaty, porky meld that's topped with beer-braised sauerkraut and Emmentaler cheese.
