It's one of our favorite things during arts weekend

We did one of our favorite things this past weekend. We attended the art breakfast at Coconut Grove Gallery & Interiors. Every year during the Arts Festival weekend, the gallery does something special. Last year it was working artists including chalk art outside in the parking lot. This year artist Maria Paulina Troncoso was on hand with her amazing art exhibit. Here Maria stands in front of "Yellow Sails," one of her favorite pieces.

Of course the great breakfast buffet is also part of the draw, and the free shuttle service back and forth from the gallery to the Arts Festival.

Executive Chef Monica Bloise of My Cantina, ran the buffet and she prepared excellent specialties right on the spot. From omelets to waffles, she did it all, there was even fresh homemade whipped cream to put on the large selection of fruit. The coffee was incredible. I asked Monica to "surprise me" with an omelet and I heard someone else ask the same thing and the surprise was a delicious omelet made with a special secret hot sauce ingredient. Monica described her omelets as "Heat with a hug." I loved that! It really fit the food.

We hung out for awhile, enjoyed the company, art and food and of course a couple of Mimosas and then we hit the art show. The Gallery really makes it a special event. They are open daily, located at 2884 Bird Avenue.
