Different Demographics . . . Different Schedules

Part of being a bona fide, “in-the-know” Twin Cities local isn’t just knowing where to get the best weekend brunch with/for a bunch of kids — but when.

So, 9 a.m. Sunday is a great time to go to the Egg & I on Lyndale in The Wedge, while all the resident, nearby Gen X and Y’er’s are still sleeping.

Meanwhile, just a couple miles west in the ‘burbs, Perkins and other family-friendly restaurants are mobbed then.

By noon, it’s just the opposite:  the Perkins’ have all slowed down (or emptied out), while the Uptown spots are filled with coffee-drinking, bleary-eyed 20-something’s.

P.S.:  best Twin Cities pancake?

#1 — Egg & I (their “Kamikaze” pancake is pictured, above right).  #2 — Seward Cafe.  #3 — any Perkins.
