Best 15-Minute Brunch

Endgrain

Critics' Picks

You're cranky, because you're hungover. You woke up beyond hungry, and your food cravings quickly have become as intolerable as your headache. You need something sweet but also something savory and definitely something deep-fried, and you need caffeine to start the assault on your throbbing cranium and some booze to finish it. And you need it immediately. Enter Endgrain. While it's usually worth sitting at a table and waiting for one of the open-faced biscuit sandwiches (the biscuits here are legendary, with good reason), your condition prevents such a delay. Sidle up to the bar and condense what's typically a two-hour affair into a 15-minute tryst. Coffee. Bloody Mary (garnished with a mini biscuit!). Vanilla glazed doughnut. Done.
