Part coffee shop, part beer garden, part breakfast-lunch-and-dinner-inspired diner, this sophisticated space tucked away behind (and from the same folks as) the Holy Grale defies brief labeling. Craveable oddities like Captain Crunch soft serve, speculoos crepes, and cookie crisp malts go head-to-head with grown-up delights like biscuits and duck gravy and country fried pork chop. Wash it all down with Intelligentsia coffee, house-made shrubs and sodas, or one of the many craft beers. Find a perch inside if you can or, if the weather’s nice, spill outside to the beer garden out back and pack into one of the communal tables shared with the Holy Grale.

Gralehaus, behind Holy Grale, is a favorite brunch place. The crepes, especially the savory crepes, aren't something you're going to find anywhere else. I love their tea and kombucha (which they make in house).

I just ate breakfast at Gralehaus. It's amazing what they do--special, very special. How they conceive and execute an idea is very on point, and they've created a distinctive brand.
