If you’re looking to end your weekend on high vibrations, the Second Sunday Brunch at Bauhaus is the place to be. Intimate, with live music, outdoor seating, and sweet and savory brunch options, even for us vegans!
When it is not the second Sunday of the month, Bauhaus is a Tapas Bar. Wednesday-Saturday you will find tapas, meaning “small plates” or appetizers, to pair with beer and wine. Whether visiting for brunch or tapas, you can expect a rotating menu with things like seasonal roasted vegetables, salads, savory pastries, and daily chef specialties. You may be familiar with chef Tye Bauer from Bauer’s 66 1/2 before it moved to Bauer’s Downtown. Bauer’s 66 1/2 was featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives with Guy Fieri in 2016 (Season 24, Ep 8)! If you haven’t visited Bauhaus or Bauer’s Downtown yet, you are missing out, and here is your sign! At any Bauer’s spot, you can always find vegan options, even their pop-ups!
This past Second Sunday Brunch my sister’s close friend Ray was actually in the featured musical duo, so we had to attend. I told Ray it was the perfect beachy brunch music, and I stand by my statement! As for the eats, I ordered a vegan option from both the sweet and savory sides of the menu, because I don’t like to go without.
My savory plate was the “Haus Hash”- country-style potatoes with bell peppers, onions, tomato, tofu, vegan sausage, and crusty white bread. The hash was topped with avocado, smoky paprika, and aromatic fresh herbs. The potatoes were cooked until just tender, and the vegetables weren’t overdone. I saved a portion of this to heat up the next day and it was just as fragrant and satisfying. I love a well-made hash/scramble, and this was delicious!
For the sweet plate, I shared the “Puffed Triangles” with my sister, as well as saved one for my mom. The triangles were french toasted puff pastry, topped with maple syrup, dark chocolate drizzle, and powdered sugar, served with fresh berries, and topped with substituted vegan whipped cream. Airy and delicately flaky, the triangles were not overly sweet, pairing perfectly with the fruit, cream, and drizzles.
I can’t wait to see what is on the next Bauhaus Brunch menu! I look forward to the cooler, crisper weather we can expect on the patio with live music, at the next Second Sunday Brunch.
