  2. Andrew Bowyer

    This place was incredible! Amazing food, great service, and the staff was quick to accommodate a group of 9 with last minute Sunday brunch plans.

  3. Becky Ellenberger

    The best Chicken+waffle

  5. Jeremy Smith

    Awesome breakfast! We stopped by on our way through town and were SO glad we did. The food was delicious, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the atmosphere comfortable and casual. This is the type of restaurant that makes you wish you lived closer. That being said, when I’m anywhere remotely in the area, I WILL be back!

  6. Paul Hosler

    In my opinion They have the best and most unique place to eat in all of Grays Harbor. The presentation of the meals is surprising given the casual environment and the price of the meals. The wait staff are so personable and upbeat that it is a joy to eat here. Of course you have bottomless mimosa’s on Sunday so there is almost always a large crowd on that day. The food is always wonderful, you will most likely be hooked after your first visit. They are located right downtown where there is an effort toward revitalization.

  7. Mary Herring

    Delicious! Stopped in on our way to Mt Rainier NP and had a wonderful brunch. We ordered Bennies, avocado toast and a Philly melt, all came piping hot to our table. Server was very friendly and the meals arrived quickly. Make this a definite place to stop when in the area!!

  8. Christopher Wright

    Stopped by here on the way back from a trip out west and glad we did! I wasn’t expecting to find a tasty brunch spot but was happily proven wrong! The place was slammed and for good reason 🙂
    Ended up getting the Benedict and it was perfectly poached, super tasty muffin and a tangy hollondaise with some smokey spice. The potatoes were also super well done and overall highly recommend with great service 🙂

  9. Justin Fuller

    All the food was good. A little slow but well worth the wait. Interesting variety of choices.

  10. Phillip Gamble

    Always superb, quality food and drinks in a soft, relaxing atmosphere.

  11. Alice C

    Really great food, but our experience over all took 3 hours between waiting and leaving. That’s too long.

  12. Sam Cunningham

    Showed up right when they opened only to be greeted by super friendly gals that were very nice & accommodating. I got some food to go & they were very nice about it & quick. The potatoes were amazing & so was the jam. The bacon was a little on the underdone side but i know some people enjoy that. Overall the 2 gals working were super nice & made me feel welcomed & made it a dope experience.

    Just moved to Grays Harbor in July. This was one of my first dining experiences here and now I am a regular of Brunch 101. I’ve eaten here more than any other restaurant. I have not had a bad meal yet and the drinks are fantastic. Fun, light, modern atmosphere. In no way pretentious, just delicious and friendly. Wait times can be slow, but everything is made from scratch and the place is usually packed. Remember, it’s brunch! It’s your destination. Don’t be in a hurry to get somewhere else and you will have a great experience.

  14. Andrea “Andee” Ames

    Woah. This is no 101. This is like Brunch 404. This food masterfully assembled. Flavor profiles were through the roof. The Chicken and Waffles are a THAI TEA Flavored waffle!!! Like what! And the spicy mojo on top married to a chicken thigh! Listen… giving your patrons a juicy thigh instead of some weak dry white breast is a huge sign of quality! The French press was beautiful and the custom coffee cups are a worthwhile decor feature. If we didn’t have another 5 hrs driving we would have had ALL the cocktails!

  15. Keith Wagner

    A summation of flavors in every bite! We left surprised, stuffed and ready to return.
    The blend of flavors and quality ingredients left our tummies full and our taste buds wanting to lick the plates clean. Five stars!

  16. Cynthia Taylor

    Great, unique food! Good and friendly service. A little pricey.

  17. Kat Krukoff

    Delicious food. Awesome staff. Nice clean environment. Definitely recommend

  18. Allistrata GG4

    Excellent service! Great portion sizes! Cool weird vending machine!

  19. Ben Winkelman

    Always an amazing experience. Great food and service.

  20. Josh N

    A bit of something for everyone with decent GF options. It was busy but not too crazy. We’ll be back here for sure, to try more

  21. Jordan

    Went and ate at Brunch 101 for this first time today. My boyfriend got the breakfast club, and a bloody mary which was fantastic! I got the chicken fried steak, and the lavender lemonade and it was amazing!
    The chicken fried steak was tender (coming from Texas it’s hard to find a good CFS in the PNW), and not tough, and the portion is well worth the money. I enjoyed everything on my plate! Cannot wait to stop here again for brunch!
    Service was fantastic, the atmosphere was so not expecting as I was walking in; I love it!!

  22. April Gann

    The chicken waffles were “Too Die for!!” They are amazingly delicious.. I NEVER order this particular dish.. but I ate my husband’s.. (poor guy) I liked the plate clean it was so good.. not to mention the Blood Mary’s are mixed to perfection..

  23. Aaron Gann

    Best breakfast in GHC.. The chicken n waffles were ON POINT, drink menu is legit too if I could chang one thing it would be that this place would be a 24hr joint.

  24. Joanne Smith

    My meal was excellent! Very busy place. The service was top notch. 🙂

  25. Michelle Valentino

    Excellent! Delicious food, great service, and lovely ambiance. A must visit in Hoquiam!!

  26. Rahul Sharda

    Visited Brunch 101 with a few friends, didn’t have a reservation but we were seated right away. Staff was really friendly and service was fast. I ordered the vegan rizoroto which was super delicious and really, really filling! Really liked the aesthetics of the place, gave real brunch vibes. Price $$. Highly recommend checking this place out!

  27. Samantha

    Some things were really good, like the Dutch baby, but the chicken fried steak was the worst I’ve ever had. Was very thick, chewy and bland.

  28. Justin Grubbs

    We had the Eggs Benedict (on house made crumpets), French Onion soup, and Cheesecake French Toast (on a massive slice of house made Brioche) and everything was delicious. Service was prompt and friendly. I will definitely return.

  29. Aaron R

    Loved getting morning drinks here, all was really good but the crumpet I ordered was simply amazing. I was pretty mind blown when I bit into it and regret not ordering a couple more. Staff is very chill and friendly.

  30. Cayla Quinton

    Super Delicious! 🙌🙌

  31. michelle m

    Lil back story… My mom and I were saddened the coastal beaches were closed due to a tsunami advisory. Decided to do the Olympic Loop and we got hungry, searched for restaurants in Hoquiam and found this place on the results list and decided to give it a try. Best decision all day!

    Brunch 101 is amazing! The staff is super friendly and perfectly attentive! The food… OH MY GOODNESS THE FOOD! It got the food shimmy dance of approval on the first bite of each dish. The cooks/chefs really know what they are doing back in that kitchen! Good sized portions, perfectly cooked, and fresh!

    I will definitely be driving 2 hours one way just to go eat there again!

  32. Sonja Broze

    What a fun little gem! They have a great, and not traditional, brunch menu that is served 10-3p most days. The environment is clean, fresh and a touch modern which is inviting (in a cleanliness way). So I had the eggs benedict aka Bennies. What makes this unique are two things in my opinion 1) the tarragon hollandaise sauce that is light and not over heavy or over powering in flavor, one of the best I have had in a while. 2) the crumpet like bread vs. english muffin. It was soft and easy to cut (no steak knife needed for once) the flavor is lighter and softer to the pallet. They might argue the bacon is also unique, and it is serious cut, but we eat this at home so maybe I’m used to it. My partner had the Croquet Madam, which he last had on Orcas Island, you really don’t see it very often. The picture shows the layering of ham they do not skimp on, but you also pay for accordingly. This is not a cheap brunch but the food speaks for itself, check out their specials in advance it might benefit your experience (unlimited mimosas anyone?).

  33. Kim Mehin

    We had a lovely brunch. The food was excellent and so was the service.

  34. Tony Karais

    Wow!!! We’ve driven by Brunch101 several times and hadn’t yet had a chance to stop in. Well we did today. This place is absolutely fantastic! It would be at home in Portland, NYC or any food centric city. The pastries are ridiculous, the breakfast choices offer something for everyone and clearly everything is made in house fresh. And the restaurant itself is super charming and stylish. Highly highly recommend.

  35. Garrett Boob

    Do yourself a favor and get the cheesecake French toast.

  36. Nichole Pence

    Hands down most amazing breakfast I’ve ever had. Bennies with fried chicken perfection. Drinks are great at well! Always super busy be sure to get there early wait for a table can be up to an hour but thats just because of how fabulous this place is. Great gem. Also the staff are incredibly friendly and happy!!

  37. Lisa Williams

    Delicious food and Friendly staff! This is a must stop every time we through Hoquiam

  38. Jaclyn Bailey

    I have never had a bad meal or bad service at Brunch 101!

  39. Jessica Cleverly

    100% guaranteed delicious food EVERY SINGLE TIME! I’m getting close to trying everything on the menu. Thai iced tea is to die for. Their freshly roasted coffee from Ocean Beach Roasters is delightful. The service is always top notch. Hats off to this amazing couple for bringing such exquisite cuisine to Grays Harbor!
