People keep asking if The Carriage House will do brunch, and the answer is finally yes.

Owner Joshua Bishop said he and others on staff are finally ready to try it this weekend. The goal was to offer items that don’t break the bank, but that the kitchen can produce without compromising the quality of the fine dining tradition at the restaurant. “After all, it is brunch and shouldn’t break the bank,” he said.

Prices range from $10 to $25 an item, and the creativity on the menu doesn’t mimic what is available at other brunch spots, Bishop said.

Items include:

  • Potato and kale frittatta ($13)
  • Shrimp in grits with wild gulf shrimp, organic maize, white cheddar foam and fried okra ($18)
  • The Carriage House’s take on chicken and waffles with bourbon glaze and Tobasco butter ($19).

Duck, steak, mussels and pork belly are part of other dishes, and the pancakes on the menu for winter are orange and ginger flavored.

The setting will be casual and there will occasionally be live music, he said. Cocktails will be available. The restaurant also charges sales tax and a 20 percent gratuity.

Brunch will happen from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sundays, but take a break after the first week since the restaurant is open in the evening on Valentine’s Day, which falls on a Sunday this year.

Reservations are recommended. The Carriage House is at 24460 Adams Road, South Bend. Phone: 574-272-9220
