We know dad will love Trolley 5’s hearty brunch options like the brisket and egg sandwich or the ‘fog horn,’ made with buttermilk fried chicken, bacon, and a sunny side up egg all served on a Belgian waffle. Plus, there’s nothing better than sharing a cold beer with your family on a lazy Sunday afternoon.
