Brunch @ Mercadito

The cocktails here are creative and strong, the wild creations of mad-scientist drink-ologists The Tippling Bros. And Sunday mornings – for $30 a person – brunch goers can sip to their hearts content. Unlimited cocktails include the Misty Sleeve (blanco tequila with ginger liqueur, Gran Marnier, citrus, hibiscus concentrate and a splash of El Yucateca hot sauce) and the grassy cucumber margarita.

The tequila-soaked feast includes a choice of three dishes served family-style. Mexican pancakes (thin and chewy). Platters of home-made corn tortillas topped with beer battered mahi mahi, shrimp, wild mushrooms, rosemary marinated skirt steak. Huevos ahogados – poached eggs, crispy corn bread, covered in a chipotle-hollandaise sauce. The place buzzes with everyone from scruffy artists to young families.
Saturdays and Sundays, 11:30-3pm, 3252 NE 1st Ave, 786-369-0430.
