Natalia Garcia and Oscar Vazquez have always loved brunch. Brunch represents the relaxed atmosphere of sleeping in and a time for family and friends to visit over a bounty of delicious food and beverage. Natalia and Oscar decided to fill the area’ need for a restaurant devoted to brunch every day of the week and hired Chef Jerry Ramirez to make their dream a reality. The owners spend most of their time supporting their servers and attending to the needs of their customers.
Their formula of providing their interpretations of beloved brunch menu items and customer service seems to be paying off. On a recent visit, both indoor and outdoor dining areas were packed with enthusiastic diners.
Their menu includes brunch classics like Eggs Benny three ways, avocado toast, breakfast burrito, pork belly hash, steak and eggs, Chilaquiles, pancakes, waffles, biscuits and gravy sliders, and eggs with bacon or sausage with a choice of sides.
If you are leaning toward lunch, there is a selection of sandwiches, salads, and tacos. The kitchen displays creative touches to each dish not found in a typical diner such as pickled onions, vibrant fresh fruit and veggie garnishes, homemade dressings, and sauces (try the bourbon bacon jam). Great care is taken to visually build anticipation in their presentation.
What is a brunch without endless mimosas (including a mimosa flight) or a spicy bloody mary with a tajin rim, bacon, and veggies?
Fruit-based mocktails, micheladas, and ciders are available. Oh, and the coffee is really good, made with Koffi beans. This place is a winner.
