Monday through Friday, Bump & Grind is a decent sandwich shop and fantastic bakery with a loyal clientele. But on the weekends it’s time for the Petticoat Bruncheon, when the food is served by cross-dressing waiters and it’s a one-of-a-kind dining experience.
With brightly painted walls, kooky chandeliers, and eclectic artwork by local artists, Bump & Grind is about fun from decor to food to service. Even with the emphasis on campy and silly, the service is great and there’s a wait here most weekends.
