From the outside, The Magic Flute looks like an old fashioned restaurant where older women would drink tea and nibble on crumpets in the afternoons. The first step inside also triggers memories of your grandparents home, with antique decor and pastel pink walls. The back patio, however, blew us all away.
The patio definitely had a mystical vibe as soon as you walked outside. The wooden walls were lined with various plants, a fountain, and small globe lights, with lush green vines pouring over the perimeter.
The atmosphere was very relaxing, with the soft sounds of the trickling fountain in the background on this very warm November Sunday.
We began our Sunday brunch with mimosas to celebrate my friend Casey’s birthday.
She spoiled us by also ordering everyone individual beignets.
These large beignets could have been a meal all by itself! They were covered in sugar and dusted with cinnamon, and came with a cinnamon marscapone cream, lemon curd, and fresh strawberries.
The brunch menu had a large variety of egg scrambles, omelettes, and benedicts, as well as brioche french toast, salmons and steaks, quiche, sandwiches, and salads.
The Magic Flute was voted the #1 Best Brunch in the city – and it did not disappoint. The omelettes and scrambles came with beautiful potatoes sprinkled with scallions and parmesan cheese, and a colorful selection of summer fruits.
Each dish had its own unique ingredients, whether it be a different cheese, assortment of veggies, or bits of bacon or sausage.
I ordered the Presidio Scramble, which came with brie cheese and mushrooms (hold the bacon!).
Venturing out from the egg dishes is this Brioche French Toast, topped with apple sauce, bacon, and drizzled with maple syrup. While I don’t like bacon (I know, I’m crazy), I had to appreciate the multitude of flavors in this dish and its adventurous ingredients.
The Magic Flute is great for a nicer, classier brunch, and it’s obvious why it was voted the best brunch in the city! From its variety of brunch dishes to different bubbly morning cocktails, The Magic Flute certainly appeals to every palette and every hungry body!
