Brunch at Cafe Tu Tu Tango

A few weekends ago, my fiance and I decided to check out Cafe Tu Tu Tango’s brunch menu. We’ve enjoyed dinner there before, and were hopeful that their brunch menu would be just as tasty. We were not disappointed!

Vibrantly colored inside and out, with art created by local artists plastering the walls, Cafe Tu Tango is a tapas-style scratch kitchen located on International Drive. Their menu changes every so often, but it has something for everyone to enjoy from the meat-eaters to the vegetarians.

From my dinner experiences at Cafe Tu Tu Tango, there was endless entertainment from local artists painting and creating to belly dancers, fire-eaters and musicians. Our brunch visit was more laid back, which I enjoyed because it was quiet enough to have a conversation. During brunch there is a mimosa and bloody Mary bar set up as well as a create-your-own-taco station with three choices of meat.

Now, onto what we enjoyed from the menu! My fiance and I are at different ends of the spectrum when it comes to brunch. He prefers more “lunch” type foods and I am a sucker for #allofthebrunchthings. This is only one of the reasons why we enjoyed brunch here.

We started out by grabbing some tacos from the taco station. There were three options: chicken, beef or pork. My favorite was the chicken, topped with a pineapple slaw. Next, we ordered the Tu-Tu Frittata and and Cajun Chicken Egg Rolls. Both were delicious and we loved the egg rolls so much that we got them again on our second brunch visit a week later!

We also tried the Biscuits & Everglades Gravy, which is made with gator meat (one of my favorite things on the menu), the No Way Jose Sliders and the Tango “Bagel & Lox” Slider.

I recommend starting with 1-2 plates for every 2 people and ordering additional plates one at a time until you’re so full you need to be rolled out of the restaurant. All of the dishes we tried, including more tacos and the Grilled Pepperoni Pizza flatbread (not pictured), were enjoyed over the course of two visits. Prices range from $8-12.
