You decided to visit your sister at Penn for the night and, instead of the casual night you hoped for, ended up drinking one too many PBRs and crashing on her futon. Before heading back to your responsibility-filled adult life, thank your sister and her roommate for hosting you by bringing them to Renata’s Kitchen for brunch. The Mediterranean menu has everything from shakshuka to pumpkin french toast, and will give you just enough energy to make it back to your apartment to take a five hour nap on your own couch.
