Brunch, Bloody Marys, and Mimosas at Fleur Bistro

Fleur Bistro is located in the heart of Capitol Hill in an old Victorian home (built in 1872). When I first moved to Denver I was captured by this old house…it was abandoned and worn down but it was beautiful. What was not evident was the astonishing interior detail and architecture of this house that was fortunately brought back to life when Fleur Bistro opened its doors. This neighborhood restaurant makes affordable food with fresh, local ingredients.
Fleur Bistro has good bunch and it is one of my favorite spots due to the great patio and bottomless Mimosas and Bloody Marys :) The patio is a nice place to relax on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon. They have various breakfast items: eggs Benedict, breakfast wraps, omelets, stuffed French toast and more.

Both of the bottomless drink choices are delicious and they keep them coming! :) The Bloody Marys are not too spicy but there is hot sauce to add to make it extra spicy. I really enjoy their Bloody Marys compared to some…they aren’t too thick making them refreshing and easy to drink. They are also generous with the olives (my favorite part) giving you two though this picture only shows one…I may have already eaten one :)

We started our meal with a cinnamon roll appetizer! They make a fresh batch every Saturday and Sunday morning and I suggest trying them! If the picture hasn’t already sold you…they are sugary, gooey and delicious.

My favorite item on their menu thus far is their Veggi Wrap with eggs, roasted red pepper, mushrooms, spinach, and goat cheese topped with tomatillo sauce. This combination has immense flavor and the tomatillo sauce tops it off perfectly. Since I am writing a review though I felt I should try some other options.

The stuffed french toast (top) was very scrumptious and is a new favorite. It is stuffed with cream cheese and topped with berries and whip cream. Sounds more like dessert! The Ham and Gruyere Melt (bottom) is thin sliced ham with melted Gruyere cheese atop focaccia with a poached egg. This was good but I did not like how thick the focaccia was…I would probably request a substitute bread if I ordered it again. I ordered it with their pesto hollandaise sauce that accompanies the Fleur Eggs Benedict. This sauce was very tasty and a great addition to the dish.
Then the Smoked Salmon Omelet (above) is topped with a dill cream cheese. This really adds to the meal making it unique. Their biscuits are crisp and thin…not a personal favorite because I like big fluffy biscuits.

Next time I am in I want to try the Smothered Potato Cakes and I will definitely be getting more cinnamon rolls, yum! This place is a breakfast spot for me but they also serve dinner which I am sure is just as delicious. I enjoy going out for breakfast more than dinner so I don’t have as many dinner spots but I will have to try their dinner soon.
