When we were first invited to brunch at Habana, we aren't going to lie, we were a little hesitant. Us blondes are big brunch snobs and we couldn't picture how Cuban food could make for what we usually go for.. pancakes, eggs Benedict, etc.
Arriving at Habana, it had the most amazing decor and set up. We were blown away by everything from the atmosphere, lay out and the unbelievable buffet. Big thanks to Bobby Navarro and his whole team from 100 eats for showing us the ropes on how to brunch Cuban style.
We were so hungry, we couldn't wait to dig in, so we decided to give ourselves a tour of what we were going to be stuffing our faces with for the next couple hours..... or until we got kicked out haha
We started with the yogurt and fresh fruit. You pick your yogurt and a batch of berries that catches your eye. Cutest idea!!
Next we headed to the meat and cheese station. A WHOLE station dedicated to meats and cheeses. It was so beautiful we almost didn't want to touch anything but what fun is that if you don't try everything?
If we weren't already obsessed with this buffet, right next to the meat and cheeses was a three tiered try full of PB&J sandwiches.
In the very back of the restaurant was a cart full of all the best seafood finds. Shrimp, oysters, mussels, everything you could imagine. There is even a nice man to warm up and mix whatever you would like.
Heading back to the beginning of the buffet.... holy cow. First off, they start with three huge cakes. How cruel is that, trying to ruin our appetite from the beginning haha
No words for this station but HEAVEN. The empanadas were one our of absolute favorites.
A waffle station closed out the end of the table. And by waffle station we mean the waffles with every topping you could ever imagine. You really have the option to dress up your waffles!
What would a brunch be without a omelet station???
We decided to go back for more of the shredded beef goodness to drench over white rice.... round two didn't go so well. Grease to the shirt. At least we'll always remember the brunch! haha
If you live near Costa Mesa, Habana is a serious must try. The atmosphere is perfect for a brunch with friends and family.
