I mentioned that Jake's sister was in town for the weekend - on Sunday we went out to brunch with his family after church to spend some time with her. Jake's dad suggested South of Beale for their brunch. I was excited because I had never been to their brunch but more so because they have a nice patio and it was a beautiful morning.
We got there, sat on the patio, and started checking out the menu. First of all, I have to say that the star of this menu is the prices of their mimosas and loody marys. $3 gets you a pint glass full of bloody mary or a large wine glass of mimosa (not the little champagne flutes like some places). You can pay $12 and get a bottle service of champagne and OJ - we went this route and found it to be a great deal.
After ordering, they brought out their famous bar popcorn. This has some sort of cinnamon sugar mixture on it and is pretty addicting.
Our food came out pretty quickly - I ordered four sides as a meal. I got the blue cheese grits, sausage, bacon, and home fries. I really liked everything, especially the sausage and the grits.
Jake got the breakfast burrito (and a side of grits, not pictured). The burrito had bacon, creme fraiche, egg, and steak fries inside and pico de gallo and sour cream on top. He reports that it was "really good."
The best part of the brunch, though, was sitting outside, relaxing, and spending time with family.
South of Beale is literally south of Beale street on South Main and serves lunch and dinner in addition to brunch on Saturdays and Sundays. It is definitely one of my new favorite brunch locations.
You should go there - 361 South Main Street.
