Saturday Brunchin’ at Santa Monica Breakfast Club Doha

Last Saturday, we went to meet some friends for brunch at the Santa Monica Breakfast Club located in Grand Hyatt Hotel (just opposite of Lagoona Mall).

The first thing you’ll notice when you walk in is the decor.  Everything is vivid and colorful—from chairs to table napkins to the murals on the walls.  This place will definitely put a smile on your face.

Weekends are made for brunches (and sleeping).  It’s a fact.  Do not argue with me.

Our group ordered the Super Nachos and some fries (regular and sweet potato) for starters.  The fries were textbook—nice and crisp.  The nachos, on the other hand, weren’t overloaded like the ones being served in other casual dining spots but was quite OK.  It has the basics—nachos, cheese, sour cream, salsa and guacamole.

For our mains, most of us opted for the salad.  I had the Ocean’s Eleven salad which is basically fennel, celery, octopus and some greens in orange dressing.  It was light and the fennel didn’t overpower the other ingredients.  The rest went for the Californication salad, Santa Margarita pizza, Pan Con Chicharon, Brekkie Bao Buns (this looked so yum but it’s meat so deadma) and Sweet Soy Glazed Chicken.  I didn’t hear anyone of them complaining so the food they had must be good.

Eating out in Doha, just like everywhere else, can be expensive and will make you think twice about spending your hard earned money.  But if you have the Entertainer app on your phone, it becomes guilt-free as you can use 2 for 1 vouchers (maximum of three per table) to trim down the bill.  We used three and saved a lot! If you don’t have it yet, you may download the app from the App Store or Google Play.
