Festive Family Fun ChiTAG

Brunch is always a welcome respite from the regular eating of three squares a day. But there's more to it than eggs and pancakes, folks. I always like eating brunch at restaurants that focus on international cuisine, as I get some variety on my plate. A great place to do this is Cafe 28. I've written about them before, but I figured it warranted a repeat since I finally got to experience their weekend brunch menu.
