A true hidden gem in Delray Beach. This blogpost is definitely overdue on the blog. When I was in high school, I remember dreaming of going to the Sundy House as if it was this far away location that I couldn’t get to or afford LOL things have definitely changed since then. Sundy House is currently my favorite restaurant for brunch for so many reasons. Sundy House isn’t just known for being a delicious restaurant but it is also a boutique inn that hosts weddings, events, and other gatherings. Its history is something worth reading about and visiting for yourself. Not only, are the drinks, food, and service amazing BUT you are literally sitting outside in a tropical garden! Could it get any better? You definitely feel like you aren’t in Florida anymore!
The Sundy House is often called the heart and soul of Delray Beach —a grand symbol of intrinsic beauty, environmental stewardship, and historic and artistic preservation. This Victorian, Queen Anne-style house is the oldest house in Delray Beach and was built in 1902 out of Dade County pine. Delray Beach’s first Mayor, John Sundy built this home for his family and they lived here for nearly 80 years. The Sundy Home served as Delray’s first church, bank, and schoolhouse. The Sundy Family were true pioneers and engendered a spirit that is alive and well in Delray Beach today
Let’s talk all things brunch. Sundy House offers two different brunch menus. Saturdays they have their Saturday al a carte Brunch which is personally my favorite. Sundays they have their Savor Sunday Brunch that is a set price per person and includes a variety of stations of traditional and unique food items. Click here to see pricing and what’s included. My mom is obsessed with their Sunday brunch and we were planning on going on Mothers Day but because of covid that didn’t happen.
I’ve been to Sundy House for their Saturday brunch a few times. My first time was for a friend’s birthday and we sat under a gazebo and had delicious mimosas. The gazebo is a great location if you’re with a group of friends or family. On Sundays, they offer mimosas and bloody mary’s included in your buffet price. My absolute go-to cocktail is their sangrias. No, but seriously, this past weekend I went just for that but they were sold out. WHAT?! Still upset over it (insert eye-roll) LOL Do yourself a favor for me, and try them I feel like you’ll love them as much as I do. Both the white and red sangria are so fruity and tasty. The white sangria is a little lighter and might be what you want to pair with your brunch. I tried their watermelon mint cocktail as a replacement but I was not a fan at all. I expected it to be a little sweeter but it was very bland and bitter in my opinion.
Every time I go I always order their Nutella French Toast Bites which are such a tease in my opinion and I’ve ordered two orders before because it’s so yum! Don’t judge me LOL Their Sundy Breakfast and Avocado Toast are both delicious if you’re undecided what to get! When you book your reservation make sure to request Bridgette, she’s hands down the best server and she has such good energy. You’re guaranteed to have an amazing experience with her! Once you’re done eating, make sure to take a walk around the property, beautiful landscape, and tropical gardens.
