I recently had the opportunity to have Sunday Brunch (11am - 1:30pm) at the Cafe Flueri. The food was fabulous! I particularly enjoyed the roast beef, omlette, and pasta stations. I found the tables with appetizers, seafood and dessert were plentiful and well prepared. As a mother, one of the things that I appreciated, was the table of food that was geared towards children. The selection of food: macaroni & cheese, hot dogs, little pizzas, chichen, was just right for the less then adventureous tastes of some children, and the table height was shorter then the other tables, making it comfortable for children to serve themselves. While the Sunday Brunch is not cheap, it does have a lovely atmosphere (live jazz trio) and you don't have to worry that you are paying a lot of money for your children (the ones that are fussy eaters) to eat only rolls and muffins.
