The Sunday Brunch crew is back! It’s been a few weeks since Fab and I have joined our good friends Cher and Theo for brunch. Life’s been a little busy, but last weekend, we finally got together for a special brunch to celebrate the 21st birthday of Theo’s cousin, Keilah. I am such a big birthday person…I think of birthday’s as your own personal holiday. Doing something special is an absolute must, and working is an absolute no-no! Lol. So for Keilah’s 21st birthday, we decided that brunch, and more importantly bottomless mimosas were a must. There are actually a lot of brunch spots in Atlanta that serve bottomless Mimosas at brunch, but the combination of endless bubbly and amazingly delicious food is rare. My friends, Cous Cous in Midtown is one of thee best spots for brunch in Atlanta. I actually reviewed Cous Cous when they first opened, but at the time I didn’t know they had Sunday brunch. We recently had dinner there, and they just happened to mention it to us…and we just haaaaappened to be looking for a brunch spot to take Kielah for her birthday. So, just like that..it was settled. Cous Cous’s food is sooooooo good. We had no doubt that brunch would be delicious…and they had bottomless mimosas. Win-win!
So, I had the french toast for breakfast with a side of merguez (Tunisian lamb sausage). Both were amazing! The french toast was made with thick sliced brioche, and covered with pecans, strawberries, and bananas. I don’t like syrup (I know…what’s wrong with me), and this french toast didn’t need it. Usually, I drizzle a little honey on french toast so it’s not too dry, but this didn’t need a thing. It was perfect. I also had the lavender crème brûlée for dessert. I know… who eats dessert after eating french toast, which is basically dessert disguised as breakfast…this girl, that’s who. I mean what’s the point of working out 5 days a week if you can’t binge on good food every now and then, right? Lol! Crème brûlée is hands down, my absolute favorite dessert so the bottom line is, if it’s on the menu, I’m going to get it. And, Cous Cous’ crème brûléee does not disappoint. There’s just a touch of fragrant lavender that gives it a really great depth of flavor, and it’s topped with fresh rosewater infused berries. YUM! YUM! YUM! Seriously, you guys have to try this place…especially if you like Mediterranean and North African food.
Aside from having really great food, I always enjoy the staff at Cous Cous. As you can probably tell from the photos, they are all so friendly and fun. They basically celebrated and partied with us the whole time we were there…which ended up being all day. Literally. We arrived at about noon and stayed until they started their dinner service…and ordered another meal. Yep, the food is that good.
