Take your time at the Cafe 1134
Not sure what to do on a Sunday morning when you have nothing to do? Go take a seat at Cafe 1134 and enjoy their variety. Instead of the normal offerings of mimosas and Bloody Mary's, they offer a fully stocked espresso bar and loose leaf tea. But do not worry, they have those drinks that help you with the hare of the dog. Past customers do point out their penchant for slow service, so this is definitely the place to enjoy when you have the whole morning. What makes Cafe 1134 stand out from its competitors is their evening brunch. From Thursday to Sunday night, Cafe 1134 has what they call a Money Wise menu so patrons can enjoy their favorite mid-morning offerings at a discount. And hey, when is breakfast for dinner a bad idea?
Never. It is never a bad idea.

Brunch is a part of American culture, and especially part of California's. There also are not many places you can get so many different styles of breakfast food and dining experiences in one place.
