While Henley has become known for its exceptional dinner service, their brunch program has created some rumblings of its own. From starters like the fried biscuit pieces and dilly deviled eggs to mains like the spicy fried chicken sammy and henley omelet, the brunch menu is unique and delectable. While you can’t go wrong with a brunch cocktail like the garden gimlet on Henley’s menu, don’t count out the michelada de la casa.
