Sunday Brunch Pensacola Beach FL
Sunday Brunch is a tradition that dates back over a hundred years. The term brunch was coined in 1895 by a British writer named Guy Beringer, who saw it as a pleasant solution to Sunday morning grumpiness arising from Saturday night adventures.
Beringer argued, “Brunch is cheerful, sociable and inciting. It puts you in a good temper. It makes you satisfied with yourself and your fellow beings. It sweeps away the worries and cobwebs of the week.”
With this plea, a Sunday tradition was born.
These words perfectly describe Sundays in the Gulf Front dining room of H2O here at the Hilton Pensacola Beach. The atmosphere is luxurious but relaxed. Our Sunday vibe and will most certainly put you ‘in a good temper” no matter what you were up to on Saturday night.
The festivities start at the gentle hour of 11 a.m. and last until 2 p.m. It’s a foodie’s paradise with an enormous selection of everyone’s favorite brunch items, both healthy and rich, as well as many surprises prepared weekly by our celebrity Chef Dan Dunn. Every week ‘Dano’ struts his stuff with new unexpected gourmet dishes like hoisin and beer braised pork shanks and chicken chili relleno.
The buffet is distributed in five serving stations. In the dining room, we offer fresh fruit including navel oranges, granny-smith apples, pineapples, honeyed cantaloupe and juicy watermelon. Other healthy selections include yogurt, homemade granola, freshly made oatmeal and a wide selection of cereal for the kids. There’s also a salad station featuring crisp greens, pasta salad and jumbo gulf shrimp.
If you’re a carbohydrate craver, we have fresh pastries, muffins, croissants, danishes, breads, bagels and baguettes on a table by the entryway. Here you will also find a wide array of desserts, such a fresh cannoli and tequila-spiked key lime pudding.
In our Skye room, you will discover a hot breakfast station with made-to-order omelets, pancakes and whipped-cream-topped waffles as well as bacon, sausage, scrambled eggs, hash browns, warm biscuits, southern-style gravy and Mrs. Shirley’s famous homemade grits. One room over, you will find a prime rib carving station, sushi, eggs benedict and weekly specials.
While our brunch buffet goes beyond ordinary boundaries, the most notorious Sunday offerings at H2O are the bottomless Bloody Marys and mimosas. Our self-serve Bloody Mary bar consists of three kinds of vodka and flavored sea salt, fresh steamed asparagus, pickled white asparagus, spicy green beans, fire roasted tomatoes, horseradish, crisp cucumbers, pickled okra, various spices and five kinds of hot sauce.
We’re also famous for our Seafood Bloody Mary. It’s difficult to determine whether this spicy cocktail is a drink or a light lunch. Fresh raw oysters are layered in the bottom of the glass with spiced tomato juice and two jumbo gulf shrimp. A heaping scoop of lump crab meat completes the creation.
We’ll see you on Sunday.
