Key West Brunch Series – Hot Tin Roof

The wedge salad at Hot Tin Roof was adorned with bacon, heirloom tomatoes, and gorgonzola.

If you are looking for the full brunch experience on a Sunday morning in paradise, look no further than Hot Tin Roof, located at the Ocean Key Resort. Not only will the food and service blow your socks off,  the second floor setting offers one of the most beautiful views of Key West Harbor.

Start with one of their fabulous mimosas or a Bloody Mary from their ridiculously well stocked Bloody Mary Bar filled with bacon, spices, veggies, and other fun accoutrements to make the ultimate Duval Crawl Cure.
This brunch does come A la Carte,  but you can order as much as you want for the fixed rate. On their menu Hot Tin Roof offers a Compressed Watermelon Salad, various Waffles and French Toasts, and a Tableside Raw Bar. In the elegant atmosphere it is easy to sit and relax for hours, so be sure to allot yourself plenty of time for this memorable experience.

My most recent brunch at Hot Tin Roof was for the Key West Food and Wine Festival. As if their brunch could even get any better, it did. Island Genn and a few of us girls arrived with high expectations, and we were not disappointed. The Bloody Mary’s were delicious, and they had a Peach Mimosas (aka Bellinis) that I couldn’t pass up.

While we were a little thrown off by it being served family style for the festival, there were plenty of eats for everyone to get a taste of every course. From the cheese board to the guava pastry everything was prepared beautifully. My favorite part was the iceberg wedge salad topped with the best bacon I have had in my short 21 years of life. In the group we had a celiac and a vegetarian and they were impressed by how easy it was to stay within their dietary restrictions.

I typically grade a restaurant based on their scallops, lasagna, or eggs Benedict; Hot Tin Roof had a delicious spin on Eggs Benedict that can not go unmentioned. A Cuban Benedict that had pulled pork, Swiss cheese, on cuban bread, topped with a mustard Hollandaise, YUM. My only complaint (while so minor because we were totally full by this point) would be the Chocolate croissant tasted like it had been thawed that norming after being frozen.
this little charcuterie board was delicious! Brie, prosciutto, olives, almonds, cranberries and crostini paired amazingly well!

Overall it was an awesome experience with great service and as always a beautiful view. I highly recommend keeping an eye out for next years event and be sure to get a ticket before they sell out! 

Brunch is available on Sundays from 10:30AM to 1:30PM , the price is $49 per person. They have a roomy space but be sure to make reservations ahead of time if you would like to enjoy this experience (especially with larger groups).
