A small crowd had formed outside the main entrance of Washington Prime in South Norwalk last Sunday ready to try the new brunch menu. Some people lingered near the glass doors and large windows sneaking a peek inside to catch a glimpse of the staff putting finishing touches on the food, while others chatted with one another and lingered on the patio.
The attitude of the crowd perfectly embodies how I feel about brunch – excitement and anticipation paired with a slower pace for a slow and social Sunday spent with a group of friends (maybe even a recuperation from Saturday night).
Brunch is one of my absolute favorite meals – who doesn’t like breakfast foods combined with good company and cocktails? – and I’m always on the lookout for a place to brunch.
Well, dear reader, I’ve found another place for you to enjoy brunch – Washington Prime!
At the request of their patrons, Washington Prime has introduced their brand new brunch menu: Sunday Prime Brunch.
For $29.95 per person the Sunday Prime Buffet includes a complimentary Bloody Mary, Mimosa, or Moscow Mule along with a large selection of food. You can expect to see a salad bar, raw bar, prime rib station, pastry station, yogurt bar, and so much more!
Upon entering the restaurant I immediately noticed how well the brunch itself was setup. The large U-shaped bar allowed for an easy access to the salad, fruit, and yogurt bars, cheese board, and desserts.
Yogurt and Granola
Also, two long tables were set up alongside the bar and offered the more traditional brunch buffet spread: eggs benedict, bacon, sausage, french toast, and the bagel bar.
On the other side of the bar the raw bar, omlette and prime rib stations, and pastry tower were placed, also for easy access.

Pastry Tower and More!
Forget “Pastry Station,” Washington Prime has a Pastry TOWER filled with cookies, croissants, and various danish.
Also, throughout our time at brunch we noticed a selection of desserts which made their way out one by one: pumpkin cheesecake, lemon merengue pie, and individual apple and blueberry cobblers. I wish I had room to try them all!
Overall the Sunday Prime Brunch at Washington Prime offers a selection of classic brunch food along with some of their own unique items which make this different from others in the area and worth checking out!
