With fresh chillies and lime on toasted multigrain bloomer, and chorizo. £9
The Breakfast Club, London ENGLAND
Omg, this is not what we expected! Is this a normal English breakfast dish? We were surprised to be served a couple pieces of toast covered with a huge pile of guacamole topped with a poached egg, lol! We almost burst out laughing when it came to the table because it was so unexpected. It tasted ok enough. The avocado could have been seasoned a bit more though. The chorizo was optional and I’m glad we added it because it made the plate more substantial.
Slow Boy juice: apple, carrot, orange, ginger. £4.10
Orange juice. £3
Mmm, the Slow Boy juice was very tasty as was the orange juice. They juice everything to order so it was nice and fresh!
Chinatown gate. I was surprised that compare to San Francisco, London’s Chinatown was super small! Huh.
Muddled pineapple, Skyy ginger vodka, orange juice, grapefruit, lime and soda. $12
The Tropicale, Palm Springs CA
Omg, our waitress was a bit wild and crazy, but very entertaining! She was definitely working hard for her tip which I can appreciate. This cocktail was more mellow than I expected (a good thing) and very refreshing. Mmm…
Mary: Reposado tequila, spicy tomato blend. $10
Balancoire, San Francisco CA
Since our food and service experience at this restaurant was a disaster, we were hoping that they could at least make a decent cocktail. Unfortunately, they couldn’t. The mimosa was super low quality and the bloody mary had a weird aftertaste. Boo!!!
Redwood sorrel (Oxalis oregana, Oxalidaceae), Purisima Creek Redwoods Open Space Preserve.
With grapefruit juice. $8.50
With orange juice. $8
Plow, San Francisco CA
Yummy mimosas lead to a happy me! I’m kinda annoyed that they charge fifty cents extra for the grapefuit juice though especially since it isn’t listed on their menu.
No Cell Phone sign at the Plow counter. Oops, I still used my to snap food pics! 😉
Kenwood sparkling wine, fresh squeezed orange juice. $8
Hilltop 1892, Novato CA
The views from this restaurant are pretty nice! It’s a great place to have a relaxing weekend brunch. The service seems pretty friendly, but the food needed a little improvement.
Orange cactus flower (Rebutia sp., Cactaceae), Kentfield.
Cypress: California sparkling wine and fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice. $8
Mimosa: California sparkling wine and fresh-squeezed orange juice. $8
Liberty Cafe, San Francisco CA
I was appalled by the horrible customer service at Liberty Cafe. They super slow and snarky, as if the patrons were doing them a favor by eating at their establishment. Please! I will definitely not be returning to this lame restaurant!
Wow, this was a super large mimosa glass! But I ain’t complaining, lol! It was great having a relaxing lunch and catching up with an long time friend. Two for $7
