Firefly is one of our new favorite brunches. A spin on southern comfort food, they have a good variety of breakfast and lunch foods, and creamy grits that are a must-have.
While Firefly does not technically have bottomless mimosas, we categorized it as having such since the deal is as good as bottomless: $3 per mimosa, or $15 for a carafe on the weekend. Of course there is no reason not to get a mimosa, but the bloody marys are also worth trying. I love a creatively garnished bloody mary, and this one comes with pickled fennel and a green bean.
For my meal I ordered the orange-vanilla challah French Toast with apple-rasin compote. The flavors definitely came through, and I enjoyed it, despite my general distaste for raisins.
Sydney got the Grits n Eggs, which consisted of grits, a sunny side up egg, and bacon. The grits were definitely a highlight, so keep in mind you could always substitute these instead of home fries with any meal. Another great benefit of Firefly is that they have a gluten-free menu, making it an easy place to take gluten-free friends and family.
We were also intrigued by the lemon-ricotta spoonbread, but didn’t feel adventurous enough to make it a meal. We got one for the table and it worked out as such. Almost souffle-like in texture, the bread was more dessert like than anything. It was tasty and had some delicious poached pears on top. This is a good one to share, but our instincts were correct that it probably wouldn’t suffice as a meal.
Even paying our check at Firefly was enjoyable as it came in a jar with a faux candle, made to look like captured fireflies. The lid of the jar even had holes for said fireflies to breathe. So adorable, we didn’t even mind paying the check.
