The Artful Dodger labels themselves a coffeehouse & cocktail lounge, if that doesn’t scream “we have it all” then I don’t know what does. This place really does it all, from great coffee, to drag shows and concerts, to crazy cheap happy hour specials, to great food. The Artful Dodger’s brunch menu surely follows suit. This is another one with a large menu, and a fun and cozy atmosphere.


5. E-Hall

Brunch at E-Hall found on

Let’s not forget the most important brunch spot for JMU students. E-Hall is not just for on-campus dwellers, and if you live off campus and haven’t been in a while it is certainly worth the trip. JMU is ranked the #6 College in the nation for best food. This is big. E-Hall offers great options for breakfast, lunch, and dessert all at the same time, and has options for those with dietary needs. So take advantage of JMU’s good food while you have the chance, and grab and apple or banana on the way out, just because you can.


6. Late Night Breakfast

Every second Thursday of each month, head over to Festival from 10p-12a fro a FREE breakfast, no punch required! Have a blast by dancing to your favorite songs, jumpin’ around in an inflatable or making a craft for your BFF. While you’re there, you can check out other awesome events UPB puts on along with LNB!
