Brunch at 240 Union

I was relaxing in my yoga pants this morning....about to open the Denver Post when my husband asked if I'd be interested in going to brunch.

Hell Yeah! 

He's not much of a breakfast person so when he's in the mood, I jump on it.

We decided now would be the perfect time to start teaching our two 5 year olds about eating in a fancy restaurant so we went to 240 Union.

I loved my $2.40 Mimosa but I was shocked to see that they charged me $2.50 for a child's orange juice.  It would have been cheaper to order them Mimosas.....Champs on the side.

Champs.  That's what I call Champagne now because of my idol....Heather Dubrow from The Real Housewives of Orange County.

Where was I?  Oh yes,  we ordered the Deviled Eggs and they were delightful!  I wasn't really expecting much because Deviled Eggs aren't all that usually but these were different.

They had a bit of a kick to them....we debated on what it was, cayenne or Wasabi.  The green liquid on the plate was basil oil and it took every once of willpower not to lick the plate clean. I was trying to set a good example for the children.....

I ordered the Egg on Brioche with Spinach and Wild Mushrooms.  It was really tasty but I discovered that I'm not that much of a fan of spinach so I switched plates with my husband.  He had the Smoked Salmon and scrambled eggs with chive cream cheese.  I liked it very much.  Thank Honey....for letting me eat your breakfast!

We were all stuffed....but I noticed Key Lime Pie on the dessert menu and I've never had it and figured everyone would help me finish it.  This was more like a cheesecake and the lime flavor wasn't as pronounced as I was expecting but it was light and creamy.

Disclaimer: I was not compensated for my review of 240 Union and I would never serve my children Mimosas.
