you had me at 1 euro mimosa

 If Massimo had been a girl, her name would have been Mimosa.
I really really like mimosas.
It's such a happy drink that's totally acceptable to drink morning to night.

Spain isn't really with the brunch times yet.
Thankfully to the Americans who opened Carmencita
us expats/students/travelers can enjoy some really good traditional American brunch food +
1 Euro mimosas or 8 euro pitchers (!) + the carrot cake.... 
pretty sure I'll be back this weekend.

Brunch is my fave. I could eat it all day everyday. As well as mimosas! :) I'm actually surprised to hear that "brunch" is not really a thing in Spain!? Interesting.

That is amazing - 1 euro?! I love mimosas too and I feel like they are really a SF thing - I feel like mimosa brunches aren't as big here in Seattle - we are too into our coffee I guess! :)

Everything about this place looks wonderful...mmm carrot cake. I'm pretty sure that San Francisco is the city of mimosas, that's probably why you love it so much ;)
