Brunch Review: Back to The Camel

Sara brunched at The Camel this past December when The Camel first got involved in Richmond Brunch Weekend, but since then, they’ve updated their brunch menu, which called for another visit. I showed up a few Sundays ago with my old college roommate.

We decided to walk since it was a gorgeous (read: warm and sunny) Sunday afternoon. We went late, i.e. we started walking over at 1:40 PM. I figured it was a mile stroll. Just in case brunch stopped at 2 PM, I told my roommate we had to hustle. Inevitably, we showed up after 2 PM, but brunch was still going, praise be to the tater tots or whoever.

The Camel is also a music venue. This was technically my second time there, but the first time had been to see a high school classmate perform in a show at night. (We actually never stayed for the show because he didn’t perform until 10 PM on a Sunday, and grandpa me had to be up at 5:30 AM Monday. Sorry, we’re not all rockers here.)
