My last brunch visit with the girls was to Cheeky Monkey Deli on Selby Avenue in Saint Paul. For those who haven't been, the Cheeky Monkey - part deli, part full-service restaurant - took over the former Zander space in the Selby-Dale neighborhood.
My favorite part about brunch came right at the beginning: $1.50 mimosas.
The breakfast was very good and served in just the right portion size to feel satisfied without leaving stuffed. It also wasn't drenched in grease (which can sometimes be a welcome change in pace for breakfast food). I most liked dipping my toast in the eggs, which were cooked just right. The hashbrowns also struck my fancy with their fluffy texture.
Overall, Cheeky Monkey is a great casual brunch spot - whether you're meeting up with girlfriends or taking the family out for breakfast. The prices are also hard to argue with.
