Hello --

I'd like to take out a family member for a nice Sunday breakfast or brunch. I would be open to any suggestions, from fancy to fun, somewhere in the Scranton/WB area. I tried consulting UrbanSpoon but the only place that looked like fun was Glider Diner. Any help appreciated!

Patsels is very popular for brunch. I haven't been, but everyone raves about it.

Patzel"s is excellent! I have only been there once, on the recommendation of a forum member. Last Thanksgiving we had just moved into our new house. The stove that the seller left was non-functional, and no, by non-functional I do not mean that is was not stainless steel ( although it was rusted and Harvest gold) ;-) I man that one burner worked and the oven was at best temperamental.
So we decided to eat out. The food, service and ambiance were superb!

I have not found many places in the Wilkes-Barre area that offer brunch as we knew it back in NY.
(and to head off any "go back to NY comments", why would I want to return to a place that I do not miss At all, over the custom of brunch? It is only NORMAL, for new arrivals to compare where they left to the place that they currently live, it's called "human nature" not "buyer's remorse")
There was a place we went to that was decent in West Pittston.

However I have not found anything right in or on the outskirts of, Wilkes-Barre.
Any suggestions?

Default brunch

Patsel's brunch is great!
Carmen's in the Radisson is better
Wildflower's in the Best Western in Wilkes-Barre is also great.

I concur. Carmens in The Radisson can't be beat for Sunday brunch.

Carmens Restaurant & Wine Bar | Radisson Hotel Scranton PA

However, if you prefer to take a more low brow approach, and see an interesting cross section of the Wyoming Valley, you could always do the breakfast buffet at Old Country buffet. It's cheap, and the food tastes like the crap served on a Carnival Cruise, but the people watching is fun.

If you want a cheap but good sunday brunch. Check out Kay's (sp) diner in Moscow, right off 307. Small diner with great food for a price that can't be beat.

Actually, Old Country Buffet isn't all that bad for the price for breakfast. Good place to take kids too...cheap, and a lot of options. For a lunch/dinner buffet, I like the Chinese buffets more than Old Country Buffet, though.
