Takoma Park can finally enjoy a long overdue affordable brunch option for Sunday mornings!

With other local restaurants raising their prices to meet the “new Takoma” crowd, Old Takoma staple Middle East Cuisine stands on its own with a brand new Sunday morning Tapas Brunch.

From 11 a.m. – 3 p.m guests can savor 18 different menu items served small dish tapas style including many vegan and gluten free options.

Fresh fruit, beef over hummus and a classic egg and tomato bake are just a few of the many delightful menu options designed to make this tapas brunch a real crowd pleaser.

With deals such as pick-three for $11, pick-five for $16 and pick-seven for $22 this brunch makes it possible for all budgets and family sizes to enjoy Sunday brunch in Old Town Takoma.

The most unique thing about the Sunday Tapas brunch at Middle East Cuisine is the the full carafes of mimosas for only $8.

Yes, you read me right, $8. Full carafe.

For the price of one single glass of mimosa anywhere else in Old Town Takoma, guests can get an entire carafe filled with champagne and juices to share or sip alone. The mimosa carafes come in four flavors; mango, guava, vimto or classic.

In addition to these fruity, boozy delights Middle East Cuisine also offers house made Bloody Mary’s, Bourbon Mules, Cadillac Margaritas, Takoma Mango Sunrises and many other cocktail and signature drink options.

This Sunday after the Farmer’s Market, I encourage you to visit an old familiar space for a brand new experience that will surely leave you with not only a happy belly, but some leftover money in your wallet.
