First visit to OK and this brunch was fantastic! Portions are large and food was fresh, prepared perfectly and hot to table. We truly enjoyed the homemade biscuits! Karan our server provided great suggestions, was helpful and service was great! The building and environment has a cool vibe. Great location with lots of natural light. A definite “must try” if you’re in the area!

About the restaurant
We serve up tasty farm-to-kitchen dishes and cocktails, all made from scratch with ingredients sourced from local and regional farms and markets. We use slow-cooking methods on our wood grill and spit and in our smoker because it tastes better that way. Come dine with us at our communal tables, in one of our booths, on our sofas or rocking chairs, or perhaps on the porch next to the fireplace.

Our waiter Dallas was fantastic! He was always checking on us (but not to much) food was great. We had fried green tomatoes and the chicken and cheese sandwiche. Both we great.

About the restaurant
A contemporary and lively spot to dig into your favorite brunch staples. With chef Hesston Swenn's wonderful twists on Benedicts, Chicken and Waffles as well as a revival of the Monte Cristo, Café Volare aims to offer you a big city brunch experience in the small town of Enid, Oklahoma.

Located in the base of the historic Independence Tower, Café Volare is a delightful blend of old and new as it harks to the Art Deco period. With many Instagram worthy dishes and drinks, the décor adds the final touch to the ultimate share-worthy brunch experience. General manager Kaycee Parry has ensured that every aspect of your experience will keep you coming back for more.

It should be noted that the kitchen is a "scratch" kitchen in which it is the aim to make as much of the menu items from scratch as possible. Therefor this restaurant is best booked when you have the time to enjoy drinks and wait for your meal to arrive.

Delicious. Fun atmosphere. I am more of a fresh sushi girl. They had lots of cooked rolls. I would appreciate more fresh rolls. But what I did have was really good. Highly recommend the bluefin roll.
