If you've read this blog before, you know brunching is perhaps my all time favorite activity. As much as I hate getting out of bed in the morning, I LOVE getting mimosas & french toast. Here is why: I enjoy carbonation immensely. There is no carbonated coffee that really I'm aware of, and I like to start my day with bubbles. I do this with refreshing champagne in the disguise of a mimosa. In addition to that, I like that breakfast food is often times just sugar. Like, you can order actual cake at brunch and it isn't inappropriate. Lastly, I really just like being around a table filled with loved ones. You can talk and laugh and the only task on your plate is to sit and enjoy brunch.
Tim and I have gone to Magnolia many times to enjoy burgers & beers, but this weekend we arrived there before noon... and I am so glad we did. It was pouring rain which is gross, but I loved sitting at the window watching people & umbrellas run past. The mimosa had a lot of pulp, which made me feel like I was getting vitamins. And the french toast... I don't even know where to begin. Cinnamon, bourbon whipped cream, roasted peaches... I KNOW. So if you ever find yourself in San Francisco, make Magnolia a must visit on your list.
What did you do this weekend?
