LoKal opens for brunch starting next weekend

Coconut Grove is known for its weekend breakfasts and brunches, from one end of town to the other, there's something for everyone and now LoKal, the burger place, is getting into the mix. Starting next weekend, on Saturday, August 2, brunch will be served for the first time.

Laurie Grasty, general manager, told me that the crew had a run through last week, experimenting with the new menu and everything looks incredible.  What's nice about the menu is that it's different. It's not the same old eggs you're used to seeing, they've done quite a bit of experimenting and it all looks and sounds very delicious and as is the theme with LoKal it seems, they have a couple of twists and interesting tastes and mixtures on the menu.

The "Before One Brunch," on Saturdays and Sundays will be from 9 am to 1 pm. Like the GMO-free lunch and dinner menu, all the ingredients on the brunch menu are sourced locally. Everything is made from scratch by Chef Spider and they only use free-range chicken and cage-free eggs.

I had a peek at their brunch menu, it's quite interesting with starters like Homemade Pop Tarts, which are pop tarts filled with guava jelly and topped with their own frosting and dusted Fruit Loops ($3.50 each); there is also Blue Cheese and Fig Sausages ($3.00 each); Miami Smokers Bacon (two strips for $3.00); Avacado Fries served with creamy garlic and Sriracha ($6.00).

The main brunch menu consists of things like Redneck Breakfast Sandwich, which is Monterey Jack cheese on a toasted honey whole wheat bun topped with avocados, sliced tomato, Canadian Bacon, arugula and fried egg with sea salt and black pepper. It comes with fries and a can of PBR. ($11.00).

The Hangover Eggs is two eggs served over bacon, cut potatoes with cheddar and jack cheese, red peppers, jalapenos, guacamole, sour cream sauce & Sriracha-ketchup ($10.00); there is also Veggie Black Bean Tacos ($12.00), Chickn N Waffles ($14.00); Bagel and House Smoked Salmon ($14.00) and lots more.

And bring your dog, they are known for their dog friendly atmosphere, and on the menu is the Smoked Salmon and Brown Rice dish just for your pet ($5.00).

Beverages include a Red Eye Bloody Mary with Old Bay Rim; Shorty's Hard Lemonade; Strawberry OJ Mimosas and Florida OJ. And as for coffee, they only serve Panther Coffee, soon to be their new neighbor a couple of blocks away!

And if you still have room after breakfast, try the Fried Jon Dough which are fried waffles with homemade whipped cream, fresh berries, Luke's vanilla ice cream and cinnamon ($7.00) and Cappuccio, which is handmade with chocolate dipped spoons ($3.50).

LoKal is located at 3190 Commodore Plaza.

I was there a few days ago and the chicken and waffles were incredible. I'm sure their brunch will be just as terrific!

It doesn't hurt to have another option, and I'm sure they will do it right.
