What is better than brunch on the weekends? Brunch every single day of the week. Such is the case at South of Fifth newcomer Bakehouse Brasserie, who offers up the favorite meal every day starting at 11 a.m., and on the weekends it gets even swankier with live jazz.
The restaurant is the brainchild of Menin Hospitality and its culinary director, Chef Bernie Matz. The French-inspired menu features traditional fare with a special Miami twist, and we got to try the brunch dishes out first hand.
The all-day brunch offers a massive variety of sweet and savory items from fresh baked pastries to the hearty Steak Frites served four ways. We started the meal with Crawfish Beignets, a decadent Charcuterie Board and Roasted Pears in lemon honey flavored Greek yogurt. Then we moved onto the sweet stuff, and there was sure a lot to choose from: Nutella-filled Croissants, Duck Confit Pastelitos, bacon-maple Cinnamon Rolls, and S’mores Cookies topped with perfectly charred marshmallows were the favorites of the bunch.
We then moved onto the heartier dishes like the Avocado Toast, a proper French style Omelet, the country Eggs Benedict with habanero maple sausage and mushroom gravy, and a stuffed Croissant French Toast with banana foster and cream cheese glaze.
And what is brunch without a cocktail (or several)? Its South of Frosé is a must-order, along with the sweet and tangy Remy Martin Lady Marmalade, the gin-filled Bakehouse Collins and of course, plenty of champagne and mimosas, which are available bottomless during brunch for just $25.
Until you get a chance to indulge in the brunch yourself, check out the tasty pictures below and make sure to stop by any day of the week to try out the dishes.
