The Copper Onion for Brunch is Tops! SLC, UT

A SLC Sunday at The Copper Onion is a bit of a surprise. Familiar brunch plates are offered on a menu that's short and well thought out. The piece that pops is the twist given those favorites. And the customer service is delightfully spot on!

I ordered Eggs Benedict yet asked that the ham be omitted and spinach substituted to arrive at Eggs Florentine. Done - and with cheerful agility! My two brunch companions ordered Steak & Eggs and Chorizo & Eggs, respectively. And in their enthusiasm ordered a fourth plate of Eggs perched on Pulled Pork smothered in Green Salsa and we shared it all with appetizers of Patatas Bravas (Spain's spicy potato dish) packing flavor out of this world. And Brussel Sprouts cut like slaw caramelized perfectly on the grill just to add crisp to the crunch. The Bloody Marys were tweaked as well, no celery but celery seed gave balance to this brunch classic. And the Apple Pie complete with ice cream and lightly Pralined Almonds sweetly capped a lazy Sunday afternoon. And not being those to leave well enough alone, we finished with Brandy Alexanders because this old fashioned (liquid dessert) cocktail is not readily found anywhere these days... and this Alexander is made with Mexico's Presidente Brandy. Chocolate & Brandy, Ole!

Sunday Brunch?
Oh yes, please! I'll meet you at The Copper Onion!
