Midwest Living Review

Lisa Meyers McClintick
Customers have followed Succotash, described as a bruncheonette, from River Market to Holmes Street for its plate-size pancakes and fresh-squeezed juices.

Expect a gasp of astonishment when the staff plunks down pancakes that spill over plates and rival the size of a pizza. No one leaves hungry at this restaurant, which was a popular River Market fixture until it moved to Holmes Street in the Dutch Hill neighborhood in November 2009. The emphasis on fresh ingredients remains, with massive vegetable wraps (including one version of succotash), crab Benedict served on dense homemade beer bread and juice that's fresh-squeezed when you order. Crave a green nutritional kick? They'll snip off and juice wheatgrass growing in pots along the burnished wood bar. Part of the fun is the eclectic art, including metal pieces sculpted by owner Beth Barden and a red chandelier by the entrance. Even better: the aptly named eight-layer rainbow cake that tempts diners from its place of honor on the bar. Given the size of breakfast, though, you'll probably need it to go.
