I must say Ragtime has a new spot in my heart for brunch! It you want a true Sunday brunch experience this is the place to dine. There was a live jazz band and TVs with all of the popular games on. The prices ranged between $9- $15 which is great if you do not want to spend a lot of money.  Especially since many places around Wilson Blvd are becoming more expensive. They do not have a full brunch buffet but they do have a waffle and omelet bar. The bar also had sausage, bacon and home fries on it. Which all tasted delicious!  

To my surprise they have pitchers of Mimosa! ---How can you go wrong with that!? Of course if you want you can also have it by the glass.

The regular brunch menu was smaller, but it had diverse choices of breakfast and lunch      ( such as sandwiches or soups) . There are choices such as  Breakfast Burrito with scrambled eggs, bacon, cheddar & Jack cheeses with pico de gallo rolled in a flour tortilla. Served with home fries or Crab Benedict english muffin topped with poached eggs, Maryland crabmeat & hollandaise. Served with home fries. If you want something that is more like lunch they have munchies which range any where from Buffalo Wings with jumbo spicy chicken wings served with your choice of Ranch or Blue Cheese Dressing. There are also choices for soups and salads. 

I decided to get the Waffle and Omelet bar which was yummy!  ( Please excuse the not so full plate!!) It was a great choice since I always like making my own omletes and all I really wanted was eggs and waffles. This gave me the choice of making my own omelet and putting everything I wanted on my waffle. 

Ragtime is a great place to start a Sunday Funday. The music really puts you in a good mood. I honestly could have sat there for hours! On a scale from one to ten I would put Ragtime at a nine. It over all was a great experience! Ragtime would be a great place if you would want a more relaxed brunch that is not in a "stuffy" location. 

I cannot wait until the next time I can go there for brunch! Stay tuned for another brunch review!!!
