I’m always down for brunch, but if you add the two magic words “bottomless mimosas” to it, then you definitely got me hooked. Phuong, Lindsay and I decided to try out a popular brunch placed called Riley’s in Long Beach one Saturday morning.
Obviously, the first thing we ordered as soon as we sat down was the bottomless mimosas. We got a mango flavor and it was very delicious and sweet. We also liked that they poured the drinks in front of us so we could watch the waitress make them.
While sipping on our mimosas, we perused the menu and decided to get something sweet to share for the table. The stuffed French toast looked too enticing not to pass up. It was French toast with lemon mascarpone, cinnamon, powdered sugar, fresh strawberries and raspberries. This French toast was decadent, yet not too sweet and overwhelming. The fruit gave it a fresh taste, while the lemon added a nice acidic element.
I ordered the spinach omelette for myself, which came with caramelized onion, feta, quinoa, mushrooms, with potatoes and toast. I got it made with egg whites and it was pretty tasty. I enjoyed it, but I enjoyed my omelette from Coffee Cup Cafe more. This omelette was tasty though because it had lots of ingredients I really enjoy.
The three of us had a lovely brunch together and it was a nice way to start our Saturday morning. The waitress was nice and the food was pretty cheap. I thought the restaurant didn’t have the best acoustics, though, because it got really loud in there. If I lived in Long Beach, though, I would definitely go back for their bottomless mimosa brunch special.
