Sunday brunch, only on Saturday

Wichitans love buffets, particularly on Sundays, when they flock to local eateries for huge spreads of eggs, potatoes, waffles, fruit, prime rib and more.

A couple of smart restaurateurs have recently realized that the Sunday Brunch formula might translate to Saturdays as well.

Starting on Sept. 4, Piccadilly Grill at 7728 E. Central Avenue will begin offering a Saturday morning brunch buffet in addition to its existing Sunday buffet. It’ll be offered from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. include made-to-order omelets, eggs Benedict, scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravy¬† plus panini sandwiches, wraps, salads and soups. It’ll be $9.95 for adults, $8.95 for seniors and¬† $5.95 for children 6 to 12. (Kids 5 and under eat free.)

Granite City restaurants in Wichita also offer a brunch buffet on Saturdays, though it’s a little smaller and a little less expensive than its whizz-bang Sunday spread. It’s offered from 9 a.m. to noon and includes an omelet station, homeade cinnamon rolls, eggs, sausage, potatoes and other breakfast fare. It’s $9.99 for adults, $5.99 for ages 6 to 12 and free for ages 5 and under. Granite City has restaurants at 2244 N. Webb Road and 2661 N. Maize Road.
