Some of the most popular breakfast items on the brunch menu include the Carmen's French Toast, made with cinnamon raisin bread and topped with fruit and a side of jalapeño bacon, as well as fried chicken and waffles.
If you're in the mood for breakfast tacos, Bread Winners Cafe and Bakery serves up several options, such as the Farmhouse Tacos – with eggs, potatoes, jalapeño bacon, onion and cheddar cheese – and the San Antonio Tacos, with eggs, black beans, cheddar cheese and sour cream.
No brunch would be complete without the staple dish eggs Benedict, and Bread Winners actually has a whole menu section for these scrumptious plates. Choose from Benedicts like the BW's Benedict (smoked ham, English muffin and hollandaise); Southern Benedict (pulled pork, frizzled onion, buttermilk biscuit and Tabasco hollandaise); French Ham Benedict (smoked ham, asparagus and croissant); and the Beeman Ranch Akaushi Strip Benedict (sliced tomato, Tuscan garlic toast and demi-glace drizzle).
Other options include the Crab Cake Benedict (with sliced tomatoes, sauteed spinach and garlic toast); Vegetarian Benedict (asparagus, artichoke hearts, spinach, broccoli and English muffin); and the not-to-be-missed Texas Benedict (beef brisket hash and Tabasco hollandaise and English muffin).
If you're trying to stay on track with your New Year's diet, then you can choose from a wide variety of healthy yet filling salads, sandwiches and wraps.
Diners who are feeling a little pain from New Year's Eve will feel better when they see Bread Winners' brunch drink menu, called "Hangover Elixirs," which includes the aforementioned Bloody Marys, along with mimosas, Bellinis and the New Year-appropriate Brunch Punch, a concoction made of champagne, St. Germain and cranberry juice.
