Looking for a family-friendly place to eat on Sunday mornings? Beginning April 14, the Bistro on the Hill at Fauquier Hospital will be offering an all-inclusive Sunday brunch from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., with lots of choices and a special price for children.
Families can enjoy selections from the grill (made to order eggs and pancakes) with all the fixings (like bacon, sausage and breakfast potatoes) or fruit and salad bar. A homestyle station will offer one carved selection and another traditional lunch-style entrée. Pizza is on the menu too, in kid-sized slices, and a pasta station will include a choice of two sauces. Muffins, scones and breads will be available, and for those thinking ahead to Sunday dinner, whole pies and breads may be purchased to bring home.
The cost for adults is $9.95; kids 12 and under are $3.95 and children under 4 eat free. Fountain drinks, coffee and tea are included in the price, but bottled drinks are extra.
Natalie Ramos, director of Food and Nutrition Services at Fauquier Health, said that the idea for a Sunday brunch came from a desire to provide a variety of healthy, freshly made foods that families could enjoy together. “I won’t say that kids are picky eaters. I’ll say they have definite ideas about what they like. Our brunch will offer plenty of variety for children – and their parents.”
