Brunch Review: The Great Maple

Dined at Great Maple over the weekend for a GF’s birthday brunch and lets just say I can’t wait to go back!

Located in Torrance, CA at the Del Amo Mall (next to the Nordstrom entrance), this classy yet causal restaurant offers American fare too good to pass up.

The interior of the restaurant is clean, airy and spacious with a modern vibe.

Given the perfect weather outside, our large party of 24+ was seated on the covered side patio which was the perfect combination of sunny and breezy.

We had exceptional service from our server Gabi as well as the servers who helped her out. She was also able to split the check for every couple/group hassle-free which is a major plus.

The menu at Great Maple is decently priced with something for everyone. Portobello Mushroom Fries, Eggs Benedict Popovers, Salted Carmel Pork Rib- they have it all!

ONE-ARMED BLOODY MARY
My gf ordered the aesthetically and palate-pleasing One-Armed Mary, decked out with a seasoned octopus tentacle. Game OVER.

POIRE WILLIAM PEAR MIMOSA
Strong and flavorful with an emphasis on strong! Perfect for those who aren’t a fan of orange juice – aka ME!

The full bar in the center of the restaurant is decked out with a colorful display of drink garnishes. Next time I plan on trying their French Violet mimosa or their Tangerine Kumquat cocktail!

MAPLE BACON GLAZED DONUTS

Essential table-share option or for those with a morning sweet tooth. Comes with 3 large donuts.

BRIOCHE FRENCH TOAST LOGS
This entree is a must! The most decadent French toast I’ve had, ever. The smoked bacon Maple syrup adds that extra savory kick. Order this if you arrive with an appetite or opt to split with a friend as it is a BIG portion. Don’t leave a bite behind!

SMOKED SALMON PLATTER

Lighter fare option. Served with sea salt capers, chive marscapone cheese, baked sourdough & gray sea salt. The salmon was cooked perfectly.

Come visit Great Maple to celebrate a bday, pre or post-shopping trip at Del Amo or just for some good eats!
