Avenida - why have I not tried them before?

We were looking for a fun brunch spot last Sunday and were considering going to one of our usual suspects, Wine Theif. Although Wine Thief is fantastic, we always drive by Avenida and decided to give it a try. Its a very pretty dining room, which nicely fits in with the history of the building, and they have a patio out back. They have a very nice brunch menu, quite small, but I got a huge breakfast burrito filled with chorizo, avacado, eggs. It was good but huge! My husmand got the huevos rancheros, which were also great with a delicous smoky chipotle based sauce. We also started with the queso fundido, which was delicous. I mistakenly thought it was a BYO (bought some wine with me... whoops!). They had a nice reasonably price wine list and a delicous sangria, perffect and refreshing for a warm Sunday morning!

The service was great and the whole staff was fantastic with our very energetic two year old. I heard great things about Avenida being kid friendly, which they absolutely were, but the only choice on the menu for kids was bacon and eggs. I wish they had something more interesting. Our daughter ate some of our dishes and was very happy with everything, but more kids options would have ben nice.

We defiinitely plan to come back for dinner!
