Ever since I had my first bite at Bosscat, I’ve been craving its brunch menu. But, as you might have noticed, we haven’t brunched in a while. I know. I’m so sorry. Let it be known that I am the most upset about this. Oh how I’ve missed mimosas and runny eggs.
But the brunch dry spell stops here!
Bosscat Kitchen & Libations‘ brunch menu can be described as boozy and photo-worthy — a tricky combination if you’re not careful. Let’s start, as one usually does, with the booze.
For $32, you can upgrade your entree to a boozy brunch with a bottomless bundle with either bloody mary or mimosa. Big fan of that option, but we opted for two of the non-bottomless cocktails: White peach sangria and an aperol spritz. The sangria was expectedly sweet but big and boozy. I love aperol spritz, so I can be a bit of a snob here (ahem, why was my aperol spritz not served in a wine glass with an orange slice?). I mean, when you’ve had an aperol spritz in Italy, there’s just nothing that compares. BC’s was a little watery. Oh, well. It was good enough for me.
If the bottomless option isn’t your thing but you want to go hard at brunch: There are two whiskey shots on the menu. Just saying.
You know a brunch is good when two people can’t decide on two entrees. Yeah, we got a third for good measure. I mean, we honestly could have ordered the entire menu (and it’s a big menu). In the end, we settled on a sweet, a savory, and tacos (you can’t not get tacos).
“FRUITY PEBBLES” FRENCH TOAST.
Plot twist: In addition to being topped with Fruity Pebbles, a condensed milk glaze and fresh berries, there’s bacon. Are you the kinda person who thinks a topping of bacon makes everything better? This one’s for you. I loved every single bite of this super picturesque dish. The bacon chips, which look weirdly similar to the Fruity Pebbles, always surprised me. It’s also just as sweet as you would imagine. Warning: You will want to go out and buy Fruity Pebbles.
Thankfully, this wasn’t your normal tomato-paste meatloaf — was very concerned with how that’d taste with eggs and potatoes. Instead, the “meatloaf” is a little spicy and full of flavor. Potatoes are good too and the eggs on top were perfect. If you usually go for a classic breakfast option at brunch (or are a tad hungover), this one’s for you.
We ordered this after we got our entrees literally only because we saw someone else eating it and we were like, “we need that.” The tacos are messy, y’all, but so good. Pork belly is hit or miss for me, but apparently in a taco, I am a fan. There’s a heaping of scrambled eggs and plenty of pork belly, so I honestly wished the tortillas were a tad bigger (hence: messy). The green sauce is amazing and not too spicy. But the in-house pickled jalapenos helped kick up the spice. Fun fact: That white stuff isn’t sour cream. It’s greek yogurt, and it’s weirdly perfect a top the tacos.
Bosscat’s brunch is Sundays starting at 11 am.
