Brunch is one of my favorite things to do on a sunny Sunday afternoon (I'm a late and lazy bruncher, I am never out the door before noon). Recently, I have really enjoyed putting the bikes in the back of Brandon's truck, parking on the east side and riding around the Holly neigborhood, the hike and bike paths and downtown. We never set out with a spot or plan, just ride until we pass something that sounds good. Two Sundays ago we ended up at Mulberry on Nueces Street downtown. I have never been here before but passed it many times on my bike or walking. There were a few spots on the cute patio and we sat down without a wait.
The menu is small and reasonably priced with a few sweet and savory dishes. I alway enjoy a brunch menu that has something other than eggs or french toast on it. We started out with a mimosas and a beautifully done cheese and charcuterie plate. I will say, I'm pretty sure I could live on only bread, cheese, cured meats, sliced tomoatoes and wine. Some plates around town are an over priced dissapointment but this one was very nice and I was head over heels in love with the gaot cheese.
For my main dish I got crepes with a lemon ricotta filling and blueberries and Brandon had an open faced egg, cheese, bacon and spinach sandwich. Both were perfect, my crepes were not overpoweringly lemony or sweet.
I would absolutely eat here again for brunch, I loved how small and quaint it is and I feel like the prices matched the quality and quantity of the food. Plus, we had great service which is always a plus.
