Grille 29 Doing Brunch In Style!

As a kid, Saturday morning breakfast was always treasured. We'd typically wake up earlier than the adults just to grab a bowl of our favorite cereal and binge watch cartoons for what seemed like hours. 
Fast forward to adult hood, breakfast is usually eaten "on-the-go" if at all. 
That's why whenever I get a chance, I treat myself to a nice hearty, warm breakfast or brunch. 

Grille 29  in Birmingham offers the chance to create new Saturday morning memories with their awesome brunch menu. 
On a recent Saturday morning meet-up with a friend, we decided to give Grille 29 a try. 
After making a reservation via OpenTable, we arrived during brunch hours and settled into our cozy booth. 

Atmosphere: This is a very nice restaurant. The space is large enough to accommodate crowds of any size. I don't think space or crowding is an issue here when it comes to comfort. The waiting area up front is spacious. They have booth and table seating. There were a couple of large groups near us, but not too uncomfortably close. They also have a large bar with lots of seating. 

Staff: The staff was incredibly friendly. The hostess was very pleasant and accommodating. Our server, Aaron was incredible. He was knowledgeable of the menu and the brunch favorites. I would request him again. 

What we had: I had the Grand Marnier French Toast: Brioche bread dipped in an orange batter and topped with Grand Marnier anglaise and powdered sugar, served with fresh fruit and I added a side of perfectly cooked bacon. This was extremely good. The fruit was delicious. I ate every morsel. 

My brunch mate had the Chicken and Waffles: Crispy chicken over buttermilk waffles with a pecan butter sauce. This is typically served with fresh fruit also. However, she decided to have a serving of fresh sliced tomatoes. I had a nibble of her chicken and it is legit!
Since mimosa's  are only .29 cents between 10 & 11 during brunch, we definitely took advantage of the special pricing. 

They also serve other breakfast/brunch favorites such as steak & eggs, lobster & shrimp frittata (breakfast pie), shrimp & grits and many more! 

Overall experience: They serve an amazing brunch with customize-able options. The service along with the staff and the mimosa pricing makes this place a winner in my book.
