Brunch at Cafe Mogador

I’ve walked past this tiny café a billion times and am always amazed by the lines of people waiting and packed tables out front. I was meeting a friend for brunch the other day and decided it was finally time to try it out. We got there right around 1:45 and waited about 15 minutes for a table. The place seemed a pretty chaotic with waitresses and servers running this way and that. It took a little while to actually get our order placed but once we did the service for the meal was on point.

The regular brunch specials here comes with orange juice and a cappuccino. We decided to add on one more drink a delicious Blood Orange Martini. This was a fabulous choice, the juice taste fresh squeezed and had a wonderful tart snap which completely woke me up and fit the meal.

Mogador is a Moroccan Restaurant so what better dish to get than the Moroccan Eggs.

Two poached eggs with a spicy tomato sauce, homefries and pita bread. This dish was just about as fabulous as you can get. The eggs were perfectly poached with a nice runny center and soft whites. I’m kind of obsessed with tomato sauce on my eggs- I think it’s about the best thing ever and here it had just the perfect amount of spice. The potatoes were pretty average but good and the warm pita bread was delicious for sopping up the leftover sauce.

Café Mogador is certainly a solid spot. The food was delicious and easy on the wallet for sure. If you find yourself in the hood this is definitely worth the wait.
