A relaxing Sunday Brunch at Jimmy’s Famous was in order after weeks and weeks of going non stop. A couple of weeks ago, we were invited to Jimmy’s Famous American Tavern in Brea to sample their Sunday Brunch menu, which is quite impressive. Typically my family and I attend buffet brunches, but having the opportunity to sit and relax and not fight for the last piece of bacon is exactly the way I’d rather spend brunch with the family.

At Jimmy’s Famous they also offer an Early Bird Happy Hour,  where they feature their #1 selling Famous Mary, Champagne and Mimosas are only $7 until noon. If you haven’t had a chance to sample the Famous Mary with Absolut Peppar, a Blue Cheese Olive, Pepperoni, Jack Cheese, Pepperoncini, and Ballast Point Longfin Lager Chaser, you need to stop in and order one. I decided to step it up a notch and ordered the Meal Mary. It’s basically a Famous Mary with a fantastic slice of caramelized bacon, jumbo shrimp and a jalapeno bedeviled egg, but oh so much more. It’s a deliciously filling way to toast in any celebration or occasion.

After speaking with the hostess, waitress and chef, my husband decided to go with their recommended Buttermilk Fried Chicken & Malted Ale Waffles. The Buttermilk Fried Chicken is their in house recipe seasoned with fresh herbs and served drenched in a Thyme Gravy paired with fluffy waffles and Applewood Smoked Bacon and Maple Syrup. My husband shared that the buttermilk coating on the fried chicken was loaded with a little too much herbs for his palette, but he liked the thyme gravy. The Applewood Smoked bacon – delicious and the waffles were gone before I even had a chance to sample them.

I decided to stick with my favorite, traditional comfort food, but was excited when the Denver Scramble arrived. The Denver Scramble GF is a skillet loaded with slivers of smoked ham, loads of cheddar cheese, bell peppers and onions. Paired with a bit of fresh fruit and a mountain of crispy tater tots, this was the perfect dish for me.

The kids decided on the kids dish options: waffles served with a couple slices of bacon and fruit, and the Mac & Cheese served with French fries and a salad. They both devoured as much as they could, but if you’ve been to Jimmy’s Famous American Tavern, you already know that they serve generous portions.
