Colorful Brunch at Pressroom in Bentonville, Arkansas

Hi! We’re Candy and Crystal. We’re sisters who grew up as military brats and spent the first half of our lives in Japan. The majority of our family resides in Japan, but we ventured out and have spent the second half of our lives mainly in the United States. We both love traveling and have always documented our travels, so we decided it was time to share our travel experiences with the rest of the world.

We were given a complimentary meal for this post, but as always, all opinions are 100% our own.

We arrived at Pressroom first thing Sunday for brunch and were excited to try this hip restaurant located in Bentonville Square. The space is bright and colorful with an industrial-modern atmosphere and the brunch menu had a variety of dishes made with fresh local ingredients.

We sat down and were immediately greeted by our server Jase who was super friendly and suggested a variety of dishes for us. For starters, he suggested one of their specialty latte's, the Honey Vanilla Latte, where their syrups are made in-house. This was such a treat because the in-house syrup gave it a nice touch of sweetness instead of using regular sugar.

Brunch cocktails start serving at 10 AM and since we were there at 9 AM we ordered the non-alcoholic Carrot Mary Cocktail. Wow! This drink was not only tasty but super healthy. It consisted of carrot, orange, apple, celery, lemon, turmeric, and beet.

We were just getting started and were already blown away by their beverage selections. Since we were there for brunch, we decided to go all-out and ordered the Buttermilk Beignets with house-made jam as our starter.

The powered sugar was a little messy, but if it's not messy than it's not a beignet! They were fluffy with a bit of crunch and we definitely recommend adding the jam for an extra $1. I ordered the Avocado Toast with Fried Egg and a bowl of fruit, which was a light and very colorful dish. Crystal ordered the Chicken and Waffles with a unique spicy maple syrup. Every time Crystal and I go to brunch, she will order chicken and waffles if it's on the menu. It's her go-to dish for brunch.
