We were so hung over when we arrived here.
Saturday had been a day-long booze-fest at the Rennie Pleasure Faire, so by Sunday the thought of alcohol was just painful. But alas, it was a good friend’s birthday, and so we sacked it up and headed to Sunny Spot for a boozy birthday brunch.
Fast forward to one hour, and countless mimosas later, and we’d totally forgotten about those pesky headaches and had thoroughly acclimated to our bright and colorful surroundings. So the music was a little loud, and the crowd a bit cooler than us, but the waitress rocked our socks off with her refill speed and perky demeanor.
Fast forward to three hours later (yes, they let us continue searching for the bottom of our glasses for this long!), and the music seemed just the right decibel and we were in love. Sunny Spot – you have won our brunching hearts. (And that ropa vieja? errrr-my-gerrrrrrrd, so good.)
Brunching Spot: Sunny Spot, Venice
Boozy Brunch Hours: Sat & Sun, 9:30am – 4pm
Bottomless Mimosa Deal: $15 Bottomless Mimosas, Bloody Marys, and Sunny Rum Punch (and yes, you can mix and match!)
Menu Highlights: the aforementioned Ropa Vieja is outstanding. We also tried the hangover plate and mofongo & eggs, which were both pretty good. But if we go back, its going to be for that saucy spicy pork.
