Taco Guild, known for its cilantro-studded guacamole and robust food lineup featuring more than a dozen taco options, recently launched a new brunch menu. The unique uptown Mexican eatery is housed in an old church, which seems fitting since some consider brunch to be an almost religious ritual. In fact, the new menu kicked off on Sunday, August 25 with a full gospel band, which will return every Sunday in September. The brunch menu features nine new items. Here’s what to look for:

Diners can indulge in inventive twists on traditional breakfast items like the Fried Tamale Cubano Eggs Benedict, slow-roasted pork, ham, Swiss cheese and Dijon sauce draped over fried corn tamales with chile and cheese with a poached egg perched on top, or Lobster Avocado Toast, house-made bread covered in avocado spread sprinkled with cotija and red pepper flakes, sautéed lobster meat with white wine and habanero butter topped with two poached eggs and hollandaise sauce. Consider the Cherry Steak Breakfast Skillet Casserole, Taco Guild’s take on an omelet featuring eggs, mixed peppers, onions, mushrooms, cherry steak, gorgonzola, chipotle aïoli and poblano straws.

Guests with a sweet tooth can opt for the Coconut French Toast, a sugary medley of tres leches custard, cinnamon, cardamom, torta bread, toasted coconut, mango, strawberries, honey, cinnamon butter and tequila syrup with a house-made sausage patty.

Taco Guild’s signature south-of-the-border flair can be found in fare like the Huevos Rancheros (borracho beans, two housemade corn tortillas, pork carnitas, salsa verde, two eggs your way, chipotle cilantro sour cream, pico de gallo, cotija cheese and avocado), Huevos con Papas (papas bravas, choice of chorizo, coffee beef or chicken tinga, with peppers, onions, two eggs your way and borracho beans, cotija cheese, and house-made tortillas on the side) or the chicken, beef or vegetable Guild Breakfast Enchilada with salsa verde or red sauce, borracho beans, Oaxaca cheese and two eggs your way, doused in avocado sauce, sour cream, pico de gallo and cotija. The restaurant’s culinary creativity shines in delectable dishes like the Avocado Breakfast Nacho, a bed of avocado fries layered with borracho beans, cilantro sour cream, pico de gallo, cotija cheese and a poached egg.

For a more classic brunch experience, try the Taco Guild 2 Eggs Plate, two eggs any style, protein of your choice (carnitas, chicken tinga, coffee beef, chorizo link or jalapeño bacon), papas bravas, tortillas, chopped tomato and, of course, cilantro.

Wash it all down with a tasty tipple like the Breakfast Marg with Corazon Reposado and agave, a michelada or a mimosa flight.

Brunch is served every Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
