What are the two most sacred words in the English language? Yes, you guessed it: Brunch Buffet. And Sava’s on State Street has the hour-long wait on Sunday mornings to prove it. (Pro-tip: If you only come with one other person you can probably skip the wait by finding seats at the bar.)
The dishes rotate some, but there’s always something to be savored by anyone looking to get his or her brunch on: fruits, meats, cheeses, carbs of all varieties, egg dishes, waffles, seafood — maybe chorizo mac ‘n’ cheese or spinach dip if you pick a good week. Oh, and did I mention a mimosa is included? When the bill arrived and I saw it wasn’t an additional charge I just about flipped my barstool. The sweets situation — an assortment of mini pies, pastries, macaroons, etc. — affords the luxury of light dessert to satisfy a post-meal sweet tooth, or the versatility to create a personal dessert platter if the buffet’s other options left you with room.
Sava’s is singular when it comes to Ann Arbor’s brunch offerings; boasting a chic decor, open design and attentive wait staff, it’s the perfect choice for serving some Sunday-best looks or nursing a raging hangover with your last twenty-dollar bill and some change. Whether you brunch post-church or post-blackout, the important thing to remember is this: brunch. And Sava’s brunch buffet is the only reason to be out of bed before noon on a Sunday.
