    An excellent place to brunch en masse and drink bottomless mimosas. If weather permits, don’t forget about the back "plaza" featuring an old-world fountain'd, brick-enclosed bocce court. Read more

    Bitches Who Brunch recommend Vinoteca for an inexpensive, gourmet brunch - but only if you don't mind the crowd noise. Try the bottomless mimosas. Read more

    The pros at Vinoteca skip the champagne flutes and serve the bubbly in big ol’ wine glasses. We like.

    Another popular dish seems to be the sliders. Take your pick of beef, bison, or lamb. You MUST, MUST, MUST try the Bukettraube Cederberg (South African White Wine).

    Two slices of bacon is all you will need. The bloody mary's aren't as flavorful or spicy as I like them but the Mimosas a free flowing!

    Sit at the bar for better service. It's busy so they won't come after you, but as wine virgins we were easily able to get their attention for hand-holding help.

    Tables outside on the patio are best for overall brunch experiences (less noise than inside). Brunch bottomless mimosas end at 3pm so try to arrive by noon or 1pm.
