Healey and I finally got together for brunch this past weekend. As much as I love Azure and it's happy hour, I'd never had brunch there. Healey was up for it, so we headed there late on Sunday morning.
I had a delicious mojito for just four bucks. During brunch, Azure features mojitos, margaritas, mimosas, and bloody mary's, all for just four dollars each.
The Brunch menu offers a few variations on eggs benedict, a fritata of the day, french toast, salads, sandwiches and a cheese starter, pictured above.
Be careful if you go to menupages posting for Azure Brunch, it's a huge menu in comparison to the one we were given at the restaurant. Interestingly, the brunch menu provided by Azure's website shows less than the menu we were given at the restaurant, but is fairly accurate otherwise.
The brie was baked in puff pastry and served with fresh fruit and a mango drizzle. I could have done without the powdered sugar, but that's just a pet peeve of mine more than a real flavor protest.
Healey and I both ordered the Monte Cristo served with maple syrup for dipping. Doesn't that sound delicious? It was delicious! But a little rich when paired with our cheese in puff pastry, so I had to order another mojito to feel balanced(Good thing we were walking).
Brunch at Azure is affordable, especially if you like a cocktail with brunch (just 4$).
