On Sunday, August 16, Cabana Pool Bar held its first ever Sunday brunch at its Mimosa Garden. Ever since its opening, Cabana Pool Bar has been the summer destination for those who want to enjoy the luxe day life. We got to try a rare Sunday brunch at Cabana Pool Bar adding another reason to make a visit.

The price for the brunch is $45, and included is a 3 course meal and day access. For an extra $10, you get pool access in addition. Note, gratuities are not included. The appetizer course is a chia seed and almond milk pudding, with strawberries, banana, maple, and quinoa brittle. I liked the texture of the pudding, and the quinoa brittle was a nice contrast in its crunch and sweetness. The components of this dish skewed toward the healthy side, which was great.

For the mains you had four options. Our choices from the four were the peameal bacon and fried egg sandwich and the cinnamon brioche french toast. The sandwich came with a side of sweet potato fries, and the french toast had fruits, chantilly, candied pecans and syrup. Of the two, my choice would be the cinnamon brioche french toast. I liked the balance between the tartness of the fruit and the sweetness of the cinnamon brioche and syrup. The two remaining options for mains were the smoked salmon, egg and spinach pizza, and the grilled chicken caesar.

Finally, for dessert we finished on the light and healthier side with a bowl of macerated summer stone fruit and berries. The fruits and berries were quite fresh and delicious. The only thing I would change is the mint, which didn’t quite harmonize with the rest of the dessert.

If you’re looking to spend a Sunday at Cabana Pool Bar, the brunch is a great option. Given that day access on Sundays is $20, then the price of the 3 course meal is really only $25. If you’re also looking for pool access, then you would normally pay another $20, but with brunch, you’re only paying $10 more. Along with brunch, you can enjoy the Mimosa Bar which offers fruit for champagne and prosecco, as well as the rest of Cabana Pool Bar’s amenities, and the live DJ.
