Brunching At Boiler Nine

Happy Monday! So, yesterday was #nationalfriendshipday….who knew, right? Haha. Seems like there’s a National [insert-any-random-crap-you-want-people-to-buy-more-of] Day for everything. Whatever. It’s a little ridiculous to me that every single day has to be a “national food day” because it’s obviously just a marketing scheme. (I mean…it totally pulls me in sometimes!) But National Friendship Day? Welll…that’s something I can get excited about. Especially when it involves a really good brunch at a place I’ve been dying to try. 

I spent the morning eating brunch at Boiler Nine Bar + Grill with MoniqueBoiler Nine has been on my “To Eat” list since it opened last summer, and now that I’ve been, I can tell you that it’s absolutely lovely! It’s great for:

  • Big groups of girlfriends (like a #nationalfriendshipday brunch!)
  • Saturday AND Sunday brunch (lots of places only serve brunch on Sundays).
  • Delicious food in a trendy downtown setting
  • A price point that won’t break the bank (seriously, some brunches are just way too expensive! Boiler Nine is reasonable.)
  • Good breakfast cocktails
  • Local + seasonal food

Happy National Friendship Day to this lady! I met Kaley a few months ago through blogging, and she is such a gem!

Boiler Nine’s brunch menu is drool-worthy…but it also isn’t unreasonably unhealthy. Sure, there are items like the Beer Bread {BBQ Salt | Caramelized Onion | Smoked Beef Fat Butter | Beer Jam} and those giant Steak Fries {Grana Padano | Rosemary | Aioli | Aleppo} pictured above. Those things are oh-so-tasty and worth the splurge!

But you can also find the fresh, healthy items like the Seeded Toast {Avocado | Pickled Red Onion | Feta}. 

The Lambic Peach Sour was my favorite cocktail I tried: {Lambic Peach Beer, Bergamot Bourbon, Ginger Root Honey, Lemon, Mint}. Who doesn’t love a good cocktail with brunch?!


Lovely brunch dishes! Left to right, clockwise: Grilled Angus Brisket Hash, Shrimp + Grits, and Seven Spiced Braised Capra Lamb. 

I loved it. I really did. I’ll be back at Boiler Nine for another brunch soon. It’s trendy, bright, tasty, and in a great location downtown.

Seems like every time I cross one restaurant on my To-Eat list, 3 more pop up!! I have a bunch of Austin restaurants I’m desperately wanting to try….  Any restaurants on your list? Let me know!

Happiest Monday to you!

We love Boiler Nine but have never been for brunch – just lunch and dinner! Looks like their brunch is pretty amazing., so we will have to check it out. The beer bread is just to die for….
