Copious joined the German Village/Brewery District area not too long ago, and the building they renovated actually contains three businesses: the restaurant, the Notes live music venue downstairs, and the McGowan Loft event space upstairs. Copious recently revamped their weekend brunch, and I got a chance to try it.


The restaurant, if you’ve never been, is big and spacious, with lots of natural light from the windows facing South High Street. They even have a small patio out front.


We were treated to an opening taste of the strawberry and tomato gazpacho, which was light-bodied but still filling. I’ve been burned (not literally, because… well, it’s a cold soup) by too many bad gazpachos in the past, ones that are either too thick or too thin, and are seasoned poorly enough that they’re like a chunky bowl of V8.

Not so with this version: the sweet strawberries balance out the acidity of the tomatoes, the light sour notes of lime, and a little bit of heat from jalapeno.


I can’t say no to chicken and waffles, especially if the chef isn’t shy of a little heat with the chicken. Copious serves a hot chicken and waffles featuring chicken thighs fried with a house-made Fresno chili tabasco. It’s matched by a sturdy cinnamon waffle, then topped with maple syrup and a butter made with Benton’s bacon.





Here’s a close-up, just to give you a sense of what that waffle is all about.

There’s a good variety to Copious’ brunch menu, with a great beer list, cocktails, a nice patio for fall brunching, and plenty of space for bigger groups. Give it a look!
