Shakertins recently-opened location at the Shops at Legacy in Plano has quickly established itself as a neighborhood go-to for daily drink specials, solid bar food and friendly service. Now, it’s giving patrons another reason to visit: brunch.
Available every Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., the brunch menu is loaded with mid-morning favorites, including breakfast tacos, fresh biscuits and French toast, plus $7 Bloody Marys and $5 Mimosas—there’s even a Mimosa Tower loaded with 2.5 liters of Champagne and OJ.

While you eat, DJ Flip Millionz will spin tracks from noon until 4 p.m., so stick around for a fun and festive afternoon to soak up every last hour of the weekend.
