From a $6 Early Bird brunch to cinnamon-sugar chips with yogurt dip, the Haddon Ave. staple is for lots more than just dinner.
What could be better than getting up early on a Sunday morning and treating yourself to a hot breakfast at a local restaurant? That’s easy: sleeping in and treating yourself to a delicious brunch at a local restaurant! Although we’re new parents and haven’t “slept in” for three months, we fondly remember when such lazy days were possible.

Collingswood, you only have eyes for Casona.
If Sammy Hagar were coming to Collingswood for a mid-morning meal, he would book a table at Casona. Why's that, you ask?

Meanwhile, you can't get a table for Mom there for next Sunday because they're at 180…

Mother's Day is coming up. Which of these brunch spots does she dig the most?
"It's not quite breakfast, it's not quite lunch, but it comes with a slice of cantaloupe at the end. You don't get completely what you would at breakfast, but you get a good meal." —Jacques the bowling instructor (Albert Brooks) on The Simpsons episode, "Life on the Fast Lane." Soon it will be Mother's Day, and you'll be on the hook to come up with a good idea for that in-betweeniest of meals: brunch. This week's candidates: That's Amore, Casona, West Side Gravy and the Pop Shop. Help us out! We don't want to be upstaged by our more successful siblings again. Where should Collingswood take Mom for her special day? Cast your vote in the poll below—and if you don't see your top choice, tell us in the comments!
