Ah, brunch: that long, heavy, occasionally boozy midday meal that pulls your weekend together.

Brunch ideally follows a long sleep, and it should take place the shortest possible distance from home. Luckily there are plenty of great brunch spots near your Metuchen apartment.

According to locals on Yelp, here are some of the best:

Breezes Café & Grill – 567 Middlesex Ave., Metuchen. (702) 902-6220
Coconut bread, oxtail, jerk chicken, rice—experience the flavor and passion of the Caribbean for brunch, complete with live music.

Café Paris – 439 Main St., Metuchen. (732) 515-5750
So it’s only Main St. in Metuchen, not the 19th arrondissement. Eiffel Tower view aside, Café Paris offers some of the richest, tastiest crepes this side of the Atlantic.

Brewed Awakening Coffeehouse – 417 Main St., Metuchen. (732) 744-9700
Do you need anything more for brunch than a giant fresh omelet, a plate of home fries, and endless cups of coffee? We didn’t think so.

Novita Bistro & Lounge – 25 New St., Metuchen. (732) 549-5306
They’re closed on Sundays, but locals say that Novita’s home-style pasta, wine, and laid-back vibes are worth a special Saturday trip.
