Many Miami brunches offer unlimited mimosas for a fee, but before you say yes to that deal think a moment. Just how many fizzy beverages are you actually going to consume over the course of a meal? If your limit is three at best, maybe that $20 all-you-can-drink offer isn't so wonderful, after all. Maybe it's time to consider Love Is Blind's 99 cent mimosas.
The whimsical Coral Gables restaurant just started serving weekend brunch because, as owners Carlos Galan and JC Chamizo tell Short Order, "the Gables was missing a fun yet affordable place to enjoy brunch with a casual chic appeal."
Love Is Blind's brunch, served Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. offers one-price shopping when it comes to the weekend's favorite meal. For $17.99 you'll receive and entrée and appetizer of your choice including chicken and waffles; a grilled short rib benedict; a big breakfast calzone (because a breakfast wrap is sooo played out); or the triple decker hangover wrecker, a massive offering of three eggs over easy with ham, applewood bacon, and Swiss cheese stacked between three slices of sourdough toast. Does the "hangover wrecker" really work? According to the restaurant's partners, "The hangover wrecker can cure it all. We feel that it's the perfect remedy and meal to bring those who partied all night long back to life!"
Now for the reason why we venture out to brunch in the first place -- the ability to drink in broad daylight and still be considered socially acceptable. Love is Blind offers 99 cent mimosas during brunch, which makes it a far better deal than most of those unlimited offers -- unless, of course, you've brought your champers-loving pet elephant with you.
Prefer something more piquant? Bloody marys, customized with your choice of toppings including jalapeños, tomatoes, celery, spicy onions, spicy olives, and pickles are only $4 each. Love may be blind, but it sure loves a good brunch deal.
