Enjoy and amazing brunch at Grand Lux Cafe, delicious food the whole family will love! #Grandluxcafe

Do you ever just want to go out and enjoy breakfast? A breakfast you would not usually make for yourself? For a working mom like me there is nothing like it. A time to go out, take it easy and just enjoy. This past weekend my family and had the opportunity to have such a meal, we had an amazing brunch at Grand Lux Cafe. For those who are not familiar with this restaurant chain, here is a little more information about the Grand Lux Cafe: 
Created by the insatiable founders of The Cheesecake Factory®, The Grand Lux Cafe was inspired by extensive European travel exploring Italian trattorias, French bistros and the grand cafes and pastry shops of Vienna. Blending the grandeur and luxury of European cafes with the sensibilities and spirit of an all-American restaurant.

With 11 locations across the country, our upscale-casual eatery offers guests a unique dining experience from cuisine to d├ęcor. Every item is prepared fresh to order in our open-style kitchen, using only the finest ingredients such as Certified Angus, Prime, Kobe Beef, Jumbo U15 Shrimp, and organic herbs. 
The Grand Lux Cafe is a majestic restaurant with a high ceiling and fire place, a “fancy” restaurant without the high prices and the snooty atmosphere. This is a restaurant for families, couples and single folks.  A restaurant with house made food that is unlike any chain I have been to.  The brunch has everything would expect from brunch, from pancakes, to omelets and so much more. These are not the pancake and omelets I would make at home, that is for sure, there is nothing boring or basic about these meals, these are a step above (many steps really) the breakfasts I cook at home.
My family and I adored this The Grand Lux Cafe Weekend Brunch from start to finish. The brunch started off with a freshly baked bread basket. Who can say no to warm bread and soft butter? I did not think so... 
After perusing the brunch menu (and checking out the everyday menu, wow there are a lot of options. I will have to come back and try the Sunday Night Pasta and the burgers and… I could go on and on!) we decided on what we wanted to try. My husband went with the Grand Lux Cafe® French Toast - Extra Thick Slices of Our Brioche Bread Served with Maple-Butter Syrup. Also available with Fresh Strawberries.
He opted to go with the dish without strawberries he is not much of a strawberry fan. The french toast was huge and made just the way he likes it, with a crisp on the outside and soft and sweet like a bread pudding on the inside.   
My daughter enjoyed the Breakfast Beignets -  Made to Order and Served Warm with Raspberry, Vanilla Cream & Maple Syrup dipping sauces, this also comes with a side of cinnamon sugar. She is a bit of a beignet aficionado… every time we go to Disneyland and Disney World we have to make a special trip to pick up some beignets…

She proclaimed these her favorite of all time (sorry Mickey). I have to admit these were amazing, and the dipping sauces made them even more so.
Fresh Lemonade Raspberry Made In-House with a Sugared Rim, was a nice companion to my meal. The fresh sweet raspberry and the tart lemon made a delicious drink, and the sugar rim was a nice touch.
 For my entree I choose the Fried Chicken and Waffles - Topped with Crispy Fried Chicken Strips and Pecan Honey-Butter Sauce. I personally had never had chicken and waffles before. This was something I have always wanted to try. I have to tell you I was not disappointed.
The chicken was crunchy and the waffles were sweet, mixing the sweet and the savory worked very well. I know what you may be thinking, chicken and waffles... Together?? Yes, and it works! Why not give chicken and waffles a try? You can celebrate International Waffle Day on March 25, and experience Grand Lux Cafe’s amazing Fried Chicken and Waffles dish! 

Overall we enjoyed the meal, and will surely be back to enjoy many more meals at the Grand Lux Cafe. The service was great, the prices affordable and the food was hot and delicious, and I did not have to make it myself. What more could you want in a great restaurant?
