Cafe 615 - Brunch
Forget dining on that burrito close to midnight, instead dive into the true "fourth meal" once a week - Sunday brunch. Served between breakfash and lunch - brunch is quintessentially Southern in my book complete with champagne or bloody marys. There are many restaurants in Mobile that serve this elegant fare including Cafe 615 on Dauphin Street.
The breakfast potatoes are sliced really thin, almost to a chip size. I thought the texture was a little mushy and it was a little greasy as well. The three cheese grits were spectacular. I had to add a little more salt and pepper to suit my taste buds but otherwise it was good.
Onto my main course, I had the egg mauvila, which the waitress said the cafe was known nationally for. That's quite a claim but I can see why. The dish starts with those wonderful grits made into two cakes. The grits cakes are then topped with applewood smoke bacon, then two perfectly poached eggs, a verifiable mound of colossal crab and then the entire thing is drizzled with Hollandaise sauce. It was delicious.
