Sinema’s Bottomless Brunch and Chefs Backstage Dinner Series

Is there any human being that doesn’t think brunch is awesome? If so, they’re a weirdo. Sorry, but brunch is the best. I love to stuff myself and drink lots of mimosas and coffee and then stuff myself some more. Brunch is the one meal where I have no problem with dining from a buffet. Actually, I prefer it!

Lucky for me, Sinema launched a Bottomless Brunch a while back, and man, do they have it all covered.

First, there is the Biscuit Bar in the lobby complete with jams, jellies and my favorite, gravy. Or I should say, gravies. Biscuits and gravy is my ultimate indulgent breakfast/brunch choice, so I could pretty much just hang out right next to this bar all day and I’d be good.

Right along side the Biscuit Bar is the Patisserie featuring breads, muffins, cinnamon rolls, and various other pastry items (plus a little bit of fruit thrown in for good measure). This is where my kiddo wanted to live. In addition to the sweets, he was also quite enamored with the mirrored ceiling in the lobby.


 My kid + Sinema’s mirrored ceiling = instant entertainment

In the main dining room you can find the basics — scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, fried potatoes, and baked ham. Upstairs on the balcony are live-action Panini and Omelette stations. And if that isn’t enough, you can also order a few dishes from the a la carte menu. I know. Really. How could you possibly need more than all of what is already being offered on the stations?

Well, they have chilaquiles. Speaking my love language here.

And all of this – this Bottomless Brunch – is only $25 per person. The a la carte items are even included as half portions.

Oh, and did I mention you can get partake in the Bottomless Bloody Mary & Mimosa Bar for an additional $15 per person?

As you can see from these photos, I’ve taken my child, so even though you might not think of Sinema as the most kid friendly place on a daily basis, for brunch it is! I mean, they even have Teddy Bear Pancakes, so that’s pretty much encouraging you to bring along your youngsters. The price for kiddos 12 & under is $12.

By popular demand, Sinema recently expanded their brunch service from only Sunday to Saturday AND Sunday, so now you’ve got even more opportunities to go indulge on the weekend.

Sinema Brunch:
Saturday and Sunday, 10 am – 2 pm

This event didn’t make it on to my July Events and Happenings roundup as I didn’t have all of the details at the time of posting, but now that I know about it, I certainly don’t want you to miss out! Sinema has just launched a Chefs Backstage dinner series that will run through October, and the first one is happening this coming Thursday, July 20th.
