Good brunch spots in/near Troy?

Bloody MaryAfter running into a brunch predicament Sunday, Andrew emails:

Do you guys know where to get a good brunch and bloody Mary on a Sunday in Troy?

Just thinking about some of our go-to brunch spots now, we gotta admit that none of them were on the east side of the Hudson.

So, got a suggestion for Andrew? Please share!

Illium does awesome brunch on Sunday (and Saturday). No bloody marys but they do have various mimosas.

I heard that place Carmen's was pretty good.

Verdiles, Paulo Lombardis, Moscatiellos, Irish Mist, Daisy Bakers, and Browns are just a few.

The Confectionary is open for brunch now. The brunch food it great, but no bloody marys.

FYI: Alcohol cannot be served before noon on Sundays. Ask me how I know.... :-/

Carmen's IS great! Totally recommend. Not sure if they have bloody marys, but they definitely have sangria :)

B-Rads downtown on Fifth has a great bunch buffet on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 to 2.

(But I always end up ordering Green Eggs and Ham off the menu).

Carmen's Cafe has some Cuban breakfast dishes that will absolutely blow your mind. Try the Huevos Flamenco and thank me later.

People I know swear by Uncle Marty's in A Park

Daily Grind has a nice breakfast and they do serve Bloody Mary's

For a classy brunch, Ilium or Carmen's are your best options. Never been to Daisy Baker's for brunch, but that's bound to be good too.

Other good Troy breakfast options: Manory's, Spillin the Beans, The Daily Grind, B-rad's, South Troy Diner.

X's and O's Vegan bakery has a vegan brunch every other Saturday from Noon to 3 p.m. This Saturday is your lucky day!
