Angelique Euro Cafe's Thanksgiving Detox Brunch Sobering

From Black Friday through Sunday, Angelique Euro Cafe, in Coral Gables, will offer what they're calling a "Turkey Detox Weekend Brunch." Chef LeRoy Bautista's a la carte offerings are limited, but you can try a Belgian waffle ($10) that comes one of three ways: Nutella and seasonal berries, peanut butter and banana, or Ghiradelli chocolate & caramel sauce with hand-whipped cream.

Then there are grits ($12) which are are touted as creamy, buttery white hominy topped with guest's choice of a poached or scrambled egg. The Creole grits come with sauteed shrimp and are finished with roasted pepper and tomato sauce. Red eye grits are filled with chopped apple-wood bacon and topped with a poached egg. The Parisian grits are filled with chopped French ham and brie.
Then there are the benedicts ($16) served over baby arugula and a herb buttermilk biscuit with hollandaise, patatas bravas, and guest's choice of poached or scrambled egg. The Norwegian benedict comes with smoked salmon. The Angelique benedict is with slow-cooked pulled pork, roasted peppers, and tomato. The osso bucco benedict comes with braised lamb in red wine and herb jus. The canard benedict is with roasted duck, sundried tomatoes, Herbes de Provence, and white wine. The Barcelona benedict is with char-grilled Spanish pepino chorizo.

Although limitless, the mimosas are $14 -- maybe out of touch with competitive pricing. While the verdict is still out on the value to be had with the Belgian waffles and grits, the Eggs Benedicts offer an intriguing lineup that could make Angelique's an under-the-radar brunch spot this weekend.

Reservations are strongly suggested. And the hours are from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., this Friday to Sunday only.
