Twin Cities Brunch | Bar Abilene in Minneapolis

Friday, September 20, 2013

I'm back with another Twin Cities restaurant today, but instead of Happy Hour, we're going to go to brunch, which, in my opinion, is pretty much Happy Hour with breakfast.

Rob and I walked around a farmers market a bit one Saturday morning and soon decided that we were starving. We headed to Uptown, which is quickly becoming one of my favorite Minneapolis spots to eat. Bar Abilene is big, with lots of natural light, $5 bottomless mimosas, and a Bloody Mary bar.

Their menu has a bit of a southwestern flair, so I went with it and got their Eggs Benedict (my favorite brunch dish), which was served with slow-roasted pork instead of Canadian bacon and chipotle Hollandaise. Hello! It also came on top of Sourdough bread instead of an English muffin, which I'm sure would have been delicious, but I asked for sliced tomatoes as a base instead. Unlike Happy Hour, brunch is much more Paleo-friendly.

Rob got a beautiful goat cheese and mushroom omelet, which was delicious and came with a side of greens tossed in a zesty lime vinaigrette. As usual, he got a mimosa and I dove right into a Bloody Mary. We have brunch down.

  1. ah not sure if my first comment worked.

    but I was here to say, I think you live in my building! and if not, damn near close. Everywhere you go is a stones throw from my apt :) That said, you should go to Barbette for brunch! It's phenomenal! As is Bryant Lake Bowl, Spill the Wine, Lyndale Taphouse....I could go on forever. Brunch is a spiritual time in life ;) ha

    1. Oh that's awesome! Where do you live? Send me an email!

  2. brunch IS happy hour with breakfast. GENIUS.

  3. What Jenna said. Also, I'm not enjoying my protein smoothie nearly as much as I was before I read this post!

    1. Protein smoothies are good, but they aren't eggs Benedict!

  4. $5 bottomless mimosas? dangerous and a steal!
