My Date with CVille
Brunching Off Grounds
by Jared Morgan
If you think breakfast is the most important meal of the day, then you haven’t had brunch in Charlottesville. This past weekend I ventured off Grounds with friends to a student and Charlottesville favorite--The Pigeon Hole. If you need something to do on a Sunday between 9:00AM and 3:00PM (or just a really good reason to roll out of bed in between those times), then The Pigeon Hole is your best bet. Biscuits and Red Eye Gravy might be my favorite, but the whole menu is great including the Huevos Rancheros shown below.
Highlights of The Pigeon Hole include:
- The eggs benedict menu
- Sitting outside and enjoying the weather
- Running into practically everyone you know
- The aforementioned reason to roll out of bed on a Sunday morning
After brunch, my friends and I took advantage the public gardens at UVA and strolled around the Lawn and Pavilions. Our favorite spot was Garden X (below). Brunch in CVille is the perfect way to spend any morning or afternoon, get off grounds for a bit, but still enjoy all UVA has to offer.
- $7-$12 per meal
- The Pigeon Hole is right on the Corner--just a short walk from grounds
