Every Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., the Center for Visual & Performing Arts’ brunch is a feast for the family. There are plenty of breakfast items, including bacon and eggs, sausage, blintzes, Belgian waffles with warm maple syrup, and cinnamon toast. Luncheon items include carved roast and ham, chicken and dressing, pasta, vegetables, potatoes, and other scrumptious entrees. The dessert table boasts a variety of items.

Christine Carbonare, event coordinator, says, “We have a brunch every Sunday and we do not want to cancel it on occasion because it disrupts people’s schedules so we make sure it is offered with consistency. Joe Trama is our executive chef and he trained the kitchen staff. He took over about four years ago and he has created a unique feel with creative items. He teaches at Ivy Tech and he likes to keep up with the trends. We have Hugo Perea as our sous chef and he does the bakery items and everything is homemade. I think that makes a big difference. It’s a great family setting here with floor to ceiling windows so it is nice and bright on a sunny day. It’s just a nice environment here and a perfect occasion for everything from a confirmation to an 85th birthday party.”
