Sometimes, you just need brunch. Wilma & Freida's give brunch a funky California twist. Blackberry custard French toast, anyone? Or if you want something heartier, there's Bennie's chili Verde with pork and brie omelet. And of course, you can build your own omelet. And if you're going gluten-free, you're in luck, because Wilma & Freida's can do that with pancakes.
