    Very loud, I read the reviews and expected to hear a lot of music but it was deafening. Not a great place to have a sit down meal. This is more of a dance party spot.

    My husband sent myself and my sister here for Sunday brunch on Mother's day. We had never been here before and had no idea what was about to happen. as it turn's out Sunday is a Drag Disco brunch. The place was hopping and the Drag Queen was fantastic. The brunch itself was delicious and the service was excellent. I can't wait to eat here again.

    As expected, Blend did not disappoint. The brunch menu is top-notch and the food was fantastic. The service was fast and friendly and the disco tunes playing in the background kept the energy high. And the brunch drinks hit the spot - the cereal-themed iced coffees (with cold brew provided by Reign down the street) were delicious without being overly sweet and their bloody mary hit the mark.

    We made reservations for outside and were on the early side of the evening on a day when it started to rain, so we were the ONLY people there! Our server was attentive, made a delicious drink based on what I said I liked, told us about his favorites on the menu and told us about brunch. My food was excellent and plentiful and I took home enough for another meal.

    STAFF: The hostess/ wait staff were not friendly from the beginning. Not necessarily rude either but definitely not welcoming. AMBIENCE: The outdoor seating could've been better planned with larger outdoor umbrellas. The ambiance outside was rather quiet other than the runoff of the music from inside and the various conversations throughout from those who chose to be seated outside. Inside was way too dark, it felt cave like with the AC air after coming from the bright outdoors. FOOD: I ordered the Avocado toast which come with bacon bits (not listed on the menu) and homefries. The flavors and portions for my meal were pleasant. My partner ordered the watermelon feta salad with a side of grilled chicken. The sliced watermelon came out white and it seemed as if there was a haphazard attempt to disguise the lack of sweetness/ ripeness with the balsamic glaze. The order ended up being sent back but it honestly never should've even been served. If the fruit is out of season or not up to par, just take it off the menu for the time being. DRINKS: Also had the Springmosa which is basically a strawberry puree, elderflower and prosecco - too much puree made it too sweet. RATING: My partner wanted to rate the experience for 2 starts, I said 3 stars. Based on my first experience I would not return or recommend to a friend.

    We were looking forward to the drag brunch only to find out it wasn’t happening. The food was just ok, but could be overlooked if they had a run drag show. One of the servers was a little unpleasant. The rest were great!
