A few weeks back, the Beez family piled into the car, rolled down the High Level Bridge, and joined friends for brunch at the Tin Front Cafe. Baby Beez is an early napper and brunch time tends to be the witching hour. We got lucky on this particular Sunday and she behaved more like a baby than a banshee. We managed to have a charming brunch.
I kicked things off with a generously-portioned bloody mary.
Salty, tomato-y and all things wonderful. They also offer one with horseradish infused vodka, but I was afraid that the kick was more than my delicate sinuses could handle.
The Tin Front Cafe has a varied menu of hearty stick-to-your ribs vegetarian fare, but I also love that they have a small buffet that goes along with your brunch entree. On this particular day they offered chili with chili-toppings and cornbread, potatoes, salad, cookies and to die for banana chocolate chip mini muffins. The mini buffet was a lifesaver for brunching with a toddler. Toddlers, and Baby Beez is no exception, are not known for their patience when hungry. We always order for her as soon as we are seated, but it was nice to be able to give her some food immediately.
For my entree I went for the polenta with ratatouille and veggie sausage. It was a very cold day outside, and this selection was delicious and belly filling.
Along with the typical brunch fare of french toast, pancakes etc, there was a breakfast burrito on that menu that I was dying to try (next time! next time!). As Greenfielders, Tin Front is super close in Homestead. The on street parking is very easy on Sunday mornings. The cafe staff were friendly and attentive. The cafe was all around excellent. Tin Front is a brunch gem.
