Who doesn’t love a good brunch? It basically means that you slept in late and get to combine breakfast with lunch. Oh yeah, and don’t forget the cocktails. I mean, win win…am I right?
What comes to mind when you think of brunch? For me, it’s divine comfort foods and amazing drinks with exquisite company. You’ll get that and more when you visit Halcyon Brasserie & Bar in Montclair, NJ.
Not only is the food beyond fantastic, but the ambience is on point too! With a modern, and upscale yet casual vibe, it’s such a chic little spot – perfect for a date, the girls, or even your whole family.
The brunch menu is simply amazing! Here’s a peek at just some of the delectable items I tried right off the menu.
Fresh Berries & Yogurt Parfait
Brioche French Toast
Farm Egg Flatbread
My mouth is watering just looking at these pictures of the food as I write this piece!
There’s something for everyone, and so much more to give a try that I’ll have to make my way back soon for another brunch.
There’s even a chicken and waffles option! Can you take a guess at what I’m getting next time? Um, yea!!! And you guys, it’s kid friendly too! For those of us with families, that’s music to our ears.
Ok, now, real talk. Can we just take a moment to talk about the drinks for a minute? The bartenders at Halcyon serve up some tasty little cocktails. My poison of choice for the day were the mimosas. These had just the perfect little zing, and they’re made with fresh orange juice! Do you know how rare that is?! Trust me when I tell you. I may even go as far to say that they were the best mimosas I’ve ever had. I mean EVER! And pssst…between you and me, I’ve had a lot of mimosas in my lifetime, so yea, I’m kind of an expert. I enjoyed them thoroughly…just sayin’…
Along with the delicious bites and tempting drinks, I also got to hang with these beautiful group of blogger babes. Here we are with Ana, the lovely owner of Halcyon on the right.
So much fun! And check this, ladies…there was a gift bag bar — we got to make our own goodie bags!
Thanks to Measurable Difference for all the amazing cruelty free beauty products.
All in all, Halcyon was the perfect brunch spot! Thanks to Karen for introducing me to what will now be a favorite. I need to go back and share the love with my people, and what better way to share some love than with good food and drink, am I right? If you’re in Jersey, you won’t regret visiting Halcyon. Take someone you love, enjoy all the deliciousness, and have fun!
PS – they even have a lounge area on the second floor that you can book for a private event. ‘Tis the season, after all…
Cheers, guys! Happy Holidays!
