For a conveniently-accessible but nonetheless mesmerizing getaway for Mother’s Day, head to Treasure Island this weekend for Aracely Cafe’s spring brunch menu. If you’ve driven past Treasure Island along the Bay Bridge and keep telling yourself to visit it later, well then it’s about time to actually go.
Aracely Cafe is one of only two restaurants currently present on the Island, so the odds are in your favor that you’re making the right choice by coming here. With an open outdoor garden patio area, this venue’s relaxing location is perfect for a quick retreat from the City without actually going out of town. If you’re under the impression that traveling to Treasure Island, you’re mistaken. It’s very much easily accessible coming from either side of the Bay, and the drive showcases some of the best views in the world.
Aracely Cafe invites family and friends to celebrate Mother’s Day with a seasonally inspired brunch. Accompanied by a local jazz band performance on the patio, the brunch menu features three entrees including a Grilled Rhubarb Salad, Croissant French Toast, Chilaquiles as well as a side of Sweet Potato Fries. The menu is priced at a modest $25/guest and includes non-alcoholic beverages. After brunch, make sure off your meal by taking a tour around Treasure Island. With unobstructed views of San Francisco and the Bay, this is one the best spots to take photos.
If you can’t make it to brunch, however, check out their equally delicious dinner menu for Thursday and Friday nights. Some highlights include the drool-worthy fried chicken sliders, the pork belly pancakes with goat cheese, and the flank steak with mashed cauliflower. Their wine menu isn’t too shabby–and at $25 a pop for the meal alone, you’ll have room to enjoy their well-appointed vino selection.
And don’t forget to make room for dinner; their warm almond cake is baked in-house, and it does not disappoint. For something a little different, try the mascarpone custard, rhubarb compote, and lemon-basil granola dish for dessert–it’s a seemingly guilt-free dessert with subtle hints of basil that comes with a hefty serving of creamy mascarpone. Once you’ve wrapped up dessert, head outside for a stroll along the Bay for sparkling night views of San Francisco. For first-timers and return visitors alike, the views at this incredible location never fail to drop jaws.
