Sunday Brunch at St. Mary-of-the-Woods

Oh my. When our imaginations conjure up the ideal brunch buffet, this is pretty much it. We were quite unprepared for the enormous selection of food on our first trip to the brunch at St. Mary-of-the-Woods in Terre Haute, IN. We walked into the huge, beautiful O'Shaughnessy dining room and saw row after row of selections. There was a row with the salad and fruit options and a couple of rows with hot options such as baked pasta, fried chicken, mashed potatoes, roast beef, bacon, scrambled eggs, hash browns, fluffy biscuits, sausage gravy, and quiche. There was a Belgian Waffle station and an ice cream sundae station. Taking its rightful place in the middle of the glorious dining room was the amazing long table of breads and desserts. There were sweet rolls, delicious banana bread, cakes, pies, cheesecake, a brownie creation- it just went on and on (to our delight). There is an entire wall of beverage choices that you can help yourselves to and the friendly servers will come pour coffee for you if you like. The most staggering thing about this brunch? The price for adults is $12.50!!! That's right, all of this variety-as much as you want-only $12.50. This brunch would easily cost twice that here in Indy. So, you might spend a little on gas to get to St. Mary of-the-Woods, but it is so worth it to enjoy this bargain of a brunch in their beautiful surroundings.
