Sangria's included in the $25 bottomless deal, and while we meant to try the mimosas at some point for the sake of this review, well, the sangria's really strong and we forgot.
The breakfast options are largely what you'd expect — various egg options with a side of toast, home fries, and, as were told, "a choice of bacon or sausage, except we're out of sausage, so it's not actually a choice" — but choices open up with the full menu, and we even endorse a rare foray into the dessert options, with the coconut tres leches cake.
Small bill snafu aside, being the only table in the restaurant's a great way to ensure frequent sangria refills with little regard for a time limit.
Tortuga Bar and Grille's restaurant group turned it into Playa Ocho earlier this year, although it's unclear what they really did beyond swap out some art and add huevos rancheros to the brunch menu, so you can just read our ambiance review from last year. Given that our only fellow occupant for most of the meal was someone tasked with taking pictures of the entrees for Playa Ocho's website, early returns aren't promising.
A varied selection of a few omelettes, benedicts, and sandwiches each extend the offerings beyond the usual brunch menu size, and Dolce's even a worthy entrant into the #pizzabrunch discussion.
Il Piatto offers more mimosa flavors than you could imagine, but imaginations can run a little too wild (here's looking at you, kiwi).
We're like the postmen. We brunch in rain, sleet, or snow
