Brunch is the best meal, hands down. It’s the ultimate combination of sweet and savory, preferably enjoyed with a mimosa. All of those expectations are met with the new brunch at Cantina 76, the locally-owned and operated Mexican-inspired establishment in the heart of downtown Greenville. I had the chance to try the brunch menu recently and it was glorious.
Brunch at Cantina 76
Cantina 76 prides itself on using fresh and local ingredients to create imaginative dishes and handcrafted margaritas (which I highly recommend). Brunch follows this same idea and the results are delicious.
The Chicken & Waffles ($8) is sweet and savory with fried chicken and an ancho honey glaze, served with fruit and syrup if you like. Everything was cooked to perfection and now my kids want waffles every morning.
The Avocado Toast ($7) is perfection. Lots of ripe avocado spread across toasted bread and topped with a fried egg, pico de gallo, and lime crema.
You can enjoy the Steak and Egg Migas with either one taco ($5) or two ($9), which has wok seared flank steak, cheddar cheese, scrambled eggs, picante verde, and caramelized onions topped with crispy tortilla strips.
Other options include a huge Breakfast Rollup ($10) with chorizo, cheese, eggs, tater tots, and crema with pico de gallo, the Huevos Rancheros ($8) with refried beans, salsa fritti, sunny side up eggs, and salsa verde, and the Breakfast Bowl ($8) with smashed tots, salsa, a fried egg, cheese, and crumbled bacon.
Brunch Beverages at Cantina 76
Mimosas are also on the brunch menu because it’s brunch. The classic mimosa ($4) is composed of orange juice and champagne and is refreshing and delightful. Just be prepared to explain to your kids that it’s not orange juice.
Cantina 76 also serves a Honeysuckle Mimosa, Peach Mimosa, and a Bloody Mary. Sides of fruit and tater tots are also on the menu. Outdoor seating is available when the weather cooperates.
Cantina 76 is Family Friendly
The laid back atmosphere of Cantina 76 is perfect for families too. The staff are all very kind and accommodating and kids will recognize things they have eaten before on the menu, even though they are presented with a tasty twist. My two young kids really enjoyed everything and they aren’t exactly adventurous eaters. We’ll be back for sure.
