The Babes started their brunch with delicious bottomless mimosas! The perfect combination of champagne and orange juice and served in the cutest glasses. Most of the Babes’ favorite plate was the Homemade Buttermilk Pancakes served with burnt pilonsillo maple syrup and evaporated milk. These pancakes are SO fluffy and thick!


Another plate the Babes were raving about was the Torrejas French Toast. This toast is made with brioche, sweet custard, habanero whip, pilonsillo syrup, and rum soaked raisins.
