Brunch anyone? Bud & Alley’s Waterfront Restaurant — South Walton’s farm-to-table pioneer and Seaside’s beloved iconic dining tradition — opens its beachfront doors to Emerald Coast Theatre Company for a delicious jazzy brunch.

On Sunday, Nov. 3 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., you can savor a delicious buffet of brunch fare by Bud & Alley’s award-winning chef Dave Bishop, plus refreshing mimosas, a spectacular Gulf view, raffle prizes, live jazz music — all while supporting Emerald Coast Theatre Company (ECTC)

Live entertainment will be provided by The Top Hat Jazz Trio.

Our capital campaign will enable us to purchase fundamental items to continue to provide the high-quality experience our patrons deserve. We invite everyone to come out with family and friends, enjoy a beautiful brunch experience and help us fill our coffers.”
