Santa Rosa's Three Squares Puts Heart into Breakfast and Lunch

People love a great brunch. What's not to adore about golden edged banana bread French toast, for example, topped in bruléed fruit and real Vermont maple syrup?

That's why chef-owner Josh Silvers has updated his concept at Three Squares in downtown Santa Rosa, for brunch-only service, offered Wednesday through Sunday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Lunch has been fused into breakfast, and dinner is no more.

The eatery is still all about classic American dishes, prepared as what Silvers calls 'wholesome comfort food,' created in recipes designed to be healthier without sacrificing flavor.

So there's corned beef hash, but also vegetable hash, served with poached eggs and toast. Griddlecakes can be buttermilk or Pamela's gluten-free recipe, topped with fresh berries or chocolate chips and whipped cream.

Then there are specials, designed to put pep in the step, such as a chile verde braised pork breakfast burrito wrapped in a spinach tortilla, or lobster eggs Benedict.

For more lunch-y dishes, look to the burgers smothered in secret sauce, or quinoa pasta tossed with asparagus, garlic, spinach, lemon, goat cheese and chili flakes.

And no worries about libations, either. Three Squares still sends out mimosas, and J Sparkling Brut.

Three Squares: 205 Fifth St., Santa Rosa.
