Brunch Edition: Rick and Ann's

Well hello again!  I have finally returned and recovered from my work retreat and am ready to get back to blogging...sorry I've been gone for a bit!  Last week was a whirlwind of a week and I'm very happy to say that the retreat went off very well (I'm just glad to have it behind me!).  Anyway, today I'd like to write about one of my most favorite meals...drum roll please (too bad you can't make the computer make sounds as a person is reading)


I love love love brunch, it is just the perfect combination of my favorite foods wrapped into a meal!  One of my favorite things to do when I go to a new city is to find the local brunch spot.  You can always get the real feel for the people in a city/town by checking it out (this does seem to work better in smaller cities).

With that, as you can probably guess Rick and Ann's is a brunch spot in Berkeley, CA and I ADORE it!  Now I can't take credit for finding this place, my sister went to Cal Berkeley and introduced us to this adorable little spot during her freshman year.  It was love at first site.  It's an precious little spot, tucked into a small shopping strip right down the hill from The Claremont Resort and Spa (which I also LOVE).  You walk in and you immediately realize you've found a gem.  The smells and plates of food being served all look to die for and to top it off, being in Berkeley, of course they use local, fresh foods.

Isn't it adorable?!
Last time I was in Berkeley I had this:

How can you not love this place when they serve
granola and fruit in a smiley face?!

I mean really?!  This place is truly the best, I make it a requirement to go there every time I am in Berkeley and it has never disappointed.  Aahhh I wish I could be transported there right now!  I forgot to mention, they also have divine muffins (one of my very favorite foods) that I make a point to get every time.

Have a great day!
