    FIRE!
    Great brunch; watch out for the champagne they keep filling your glass with, it will catch up with you. The menu is terrific and food prepared very well, with good variety for adults as well as some kid/teenager choices.

    My place is Cafe Bouchee and take your own bloody mary's. If you want wine you can take it also. The food is wonderful and the service great. Sometimes it's not about free champagne but about reallly good food at a really reasonable price.

    Fire!

    I may be slightly biased after almost 100 brunches. :D

    I'm one of those peeps who wants to get in as much gulf viewing as possible, not to mention that I like a little of everything for brunch, especially cheesy grits. The Santa Rosa Beach Club buffet brunch is my choice, although the menu at Fire looks superb, one day I will be joining y'all-- when it rains, of course. :D

    :lolabove::floor: I was waiting on you!!!

    SRBC does have an excellent Sunday brunch, the view can NOT be beat! It is a lot of very good food for a grayt price. Not only do they have superb grits (just don't go there after Mango, 'cause there won't be any left) they also have an omelet stand and a waffle stand, made however you want yours, quiche, large pastry/cake/pie table, bagels, salmon and cream cheese, muffins, biscuits & gravy, roast, cereal for the kiddies, the list goes on....

    Fire is a fantastic brunch too, just don't let the bottomless champagne get you....and please....don't take the locals table out front.

    Add one more vote for the Santa Rosa Beach Club. The Sunday Brunch is great and it has a spectacular view of the gulf. I moved here to be able to see the water, not walls with pictures of the water.

    IIRC SRBC is around $15.00 for adults, I think kids are less. Of course then if you drink...

    It used to be that SWGB, it's now $20.95 per person. It's worth it....

    See...I don't like the Sunday Brunches where you pay a set price for unlimited snarfing. I'm a small woman with a wee stomach. Why should I pay 20+ bucks for the same access as someone twice my size and three times my appetite? I just can't justify it because I always lose money and then I guilt my husband into eating less (because he SHOULD NOT be going back into the line a third time and I will not allow it even if I don't say "You cannot go" he knows exactly what I mean with my eyebrows drawn up like that) and so neither of us gets a good value which is ironically both a good thing and a bad thing.

    That's why I prefer the menu at Fire or even a place like Jambones that has a Sunday breakfast menu -- you end up paying for the food you eat rather than the food you COULD or MIGHT eat.

    I love Fire brunch on Sunday, but I have learned to cover my glass when I know I have things to do the rest of the day :wave:
    SRBC is wonderful on occasion! The view is wonderful and the food is good. However, the view from our table at Fire can be very funn sometimes ;-)
    Brunch at many places can cost you 20.00, so why not go to SRBC every once in a while?
    Red Bar is too much funn! :clap: More casual and laid back, so it all depends on your mood.
    And don't forget about Hibiscus!! In good weather sitting outside in the garden is wonderful!

    will do and thank you for the post. My house is over by elmos on the western end of 30A so the SRBC is convenient.

    :drink2: The word is "Fire". Tried it on 10/11, and it is the best brunch I ever had. The eggplant benedict was to die for! Hubby liked the beef and grits. The atmosphere and music were superb. Service was iffy, but the food made up for it. Recommended it to some people staying in our condos and they also liked the food, but said their service was "terrible". Evidently some wait people aren't very attentive.

    Will definitely go back next October.
