By night, Heyday is a neighborhood joint serving burgers, fries, and shakes. But by day (on the weekend, at least), it serves one of the best brunches in the city. There’s standard brunch stuff like pancakes and eggs, but the slightly more inventive options are our favorites - try the cornmeal johnnycakes with cheddar and scallions, or the pork belly barley bowl that sounds like a yawn waiting to happen but is tasty enough to get out of bed for.
