Where to Brunch: South Congress CaféBy Megan Giller
February 7, 2014
You haven’t lived until you’ve indulged in the epic carrot cake French toast at the South Congress Café. The brunch staple is hardly a secret in this town, and it has the long waits to prove it. So how to handle that hour-long anticipation? We advise an infused Bloody Mary or two (Tito’s infused with veggies, garlic and jalapeños and spicy mix) or a cucumber-pear grown-up lemonade (Grey Goose, St. Germain, muddled cucumbers, lemons and fresh-squeezed lemonade). By the time you sit down for your crab cakes eggs Benedict with chipotle horseradish, short-rib corned beef hash or migas with a side of carrot cake French toast, you’ll be feeling pretty good.
The best part about brunch at this bistro? It lasts all week, which means you’ll never be without a hearty meal to get you through the day.
