Oasis Café and Golden Braid Books have been longtime enthusiastic supporters of CATALYST, since their early days, and we love them back. They’ve now given us more to appreciate, remaining open for brunch until 3 p.m. and introducing new menu items filled with local organic vegetables, sustainably ranched meats and really fresh seafood—emblematic of their motto, “Eat Responsibly.”
New menu items include chicken, seafood and beef selections, as well as creative salads, hearty omelets and interesting cocktails. Traditional favorites include the eggs Benedict Florentine, German buttermilk pancakes with blueberry compote, and the sumptuous breakfast burrito brimming with eggs, Spanish rice, black beans, roasted peppers, cheddar cheese, sour cream, guacamole and red chili sauce in a whole wheat tortilla. Or try the huevos rancheros, Oasis scramble and multigrain waffles.
