mimosasing around the neighborhood

As we officially entered the month of December a few days ago, one of my favorite other times is upon us that's not Christmas. It's brunch time.

Brunch hosted by I heart Cleveland this past weekend. She can host, cook and entertain!
Now, I'm not one to turn down a brunch any season of the year but there's something about brunch in the winter that makes rolling out of bed, throwing on your Hunter's and winter coats extra special. Maybe because sometimes it literally takes a village to get you to your car, brush it off, then it's a whole other journey to actually get to your brunch spot.

But, in my opinion, there's nothing better than spending a Sunday Funday with your friends holed up in one of your favorite brunch spots to discuss all sorts of hot topics like each person's individual weekend antics or what to drink at the next stop on your Sunday adventure.

Here a few spots I'll be posted up with friends this winter -

Soho Kitchen & Bar - A few weeks back, my friends and I hung out here for a few hours. My recommendations - the s'uthern benedict and passion fruit mimosa. Be warned - these people know their drinks and they go down quickly!

Market Garden and Brewery - Now that I think about it, I'm not sure that I've ever actually eaten brunch here but rather taken advantage of their bottomless mimosa on Sundays.

Deagan's Kitchen - While I've been here for taco Tuesday plenty of times, I've only eaten here once and was completely satisfied with my poached eggs and mimosas.

Lucky's Cafe - I've celebrated a few birthdays here with a latte and the waffles 'v', but my mom swears by the shipwreck though. Oh, and you must try one order of pecan bacon.

Touch Supper Club - Bloody mary anyone? One of my very first weekends living downtown, I met an NY friend here for brunch and holy amazing. Because there were so many choices, I'm pretty sure I couldn't concoct the same version twice. For food, I'd go with the chicken and waffles or stuffed french toast.


Clearly I have some places I need to add to my brunch eating - what am I missing and what should I be eating and drinking?

We had a brunch deal for The Nauti Mermaid awhile back and I had one of the best brunches of my life there. I don't know why their brunch doesn't get more publicity because it was amazing. I had the best Bloody Mary of my life there...it was incredible. My lobster\tomato\scallion omelet was fantastic too.

Love love love the SOHO brunch. Other spots that we've been hitting up lately - Sweet Melissa's (they have a great blood orange mimosa) and Market. The mimosa kit is totally worth it!

Brunch is my favorite meal! You picked some good ones too. The pecan bacon at Lucky's is divine! Fire has a fabulous brunch too.
