With a million-dollar view of the Inner Harbor through practically floor-to-ceiling windows, a cruise-ship-worthy buffet, and flowing complimentary mimosas, bellinis, straight bubbly, and sangria, the Rusty Scupper serves an amazing Sunday brunch. Some folks go after church; we go before a nap. Seafood highlights the circular room-sized spread featuring a raw bar, steamed shrimp with Old Bay, seafood pasta salad, mussels, and a smoked salmon and whitefish platter for bagels. Chefs can make you an omelet with crab or whatever you fancy, carve you a slice of ham or roast beef, or bake you a Belgian waffle. Traditional breakfast fare includes eggs, sausage, bacon, danishes, and fresh fruit, but there is also salad and a selection of cheeses. Sweet tooth? The generous dessert station includes cheesecake and chocolate.
