Once we got settled at our table, we were greeted with a complimentary shot of juice made from carrots and ginger beer. Here’s a little Sunday Funday fact for you: Ginger beer contains less than 0.5 percent alcohol and is thus non-alcoholic. Apparently, it is also a palette cleanser. Bonus. The juice was quite refreshing and who doesn’t like free shit.
What Boxwood lacks in drink special prices, they make up for in flavor. Their $6 mimosas include a splash of grand marnier, adding a perfect sweetness.
The Boxwood Mary is offered with a choice of jalapeno flavored tequila or cucumber vodka, although at $10 a pop you might want to sip slowly.
The most popular order at our table was The Southerner - Cheddar biscuits smothered in a delicious gravy sauce with sunny side up eggs, bacon and breakfast potatoes .
After everyone licked their plates, we headed out to the patio for one last round. With seating in the sunshine being such prime real estate on a day like today, we were lucky to snag one of the last tables available and posted up for a few more mimosas. This time we ordered the Mimosa Trio – a bottle of bubbly served alongside three seasonal juices for $20 We asked to try one of each, but were only given the orange - pineapple juice. Fortunately, it was pretty delish so we weren’t too upset. Nonetheless, it was a perfect ending to a pleasant brunch.
Dish It & Take It
The Crowd: Great for big or small groups. Stumble in with your college friends or grab a bite with your fam. Gets busy closer to noon.
Dress to Impress: Casual, but cute…. especially if you might run into the guy or girl you made out with on McKinney Ave. the night before.
Sounds Like: Teen spirit. Ha, no but expect to jam out to your alternative rock favs. Think Imagine Dragons or Citizen Cope.
Best Thing About Boxwood: Their Cheddar Biscuits and patio set up. A double win if you are able to enjoy your biscuit whilst on the patio!
Worst Thing About Boxwood: Drink Prices. Especially for those looking to get their drank on. But maybe you’re not the binge drinking, alcoholic type so no biggie!
Good food. Great company. Fabulous weather. I’m calling the DBC’s first outing a success. See you next weekend!
Until then, cheers!
