New Year's Day Pajama Brunch!

Food & Wine To-Do!: Come to Cafe Ba Ba Reeba! in your pajamas and receive a certificate for a future meal equal to the price of your meal excluding tax and gratuity! Brunch includes complimentary churros con chocolate & fresh squeezed orange juice. Soleil's Take: Now you know you can't beat that! Here's the real deal - however much you spend (on food, liquor or anything else on the menu), you receive gift cards equal to the pre-tax total of your bill. So, while you'll pay on the front end, you'll have a perfect excuse to visit Cafe Ba Ba Reeba within the next 11 months!

Not “dimisum” as in “dimisumadat (I’d like to try a little bit of that, please)”; rather, a meal comprised of appetizer-sized dishes. ;) Full of vibrant energy and warm decor, this place is always lively and festive!
