I don’t know about you, but sometimes I don’t want to wait until the weekend to catch the brunch wave. Eating breakfast in the afternoon during the week is kind of not a thing these days. It’s lunch and go. Tulua Bistro has changed that.
Keep reading to find out my experience at this cute little spot located in Jax Beach. Scroll to the end to see what I wore and get look details.
Tulua Bistro Location and Decor
I’ve been seeing reels and IG photos about this spot and have been wanting to go. Coincidentally a new friend and I decided on this spot for a quick meet and greet. We wanted brunch and this was the only “brunch” spot that we hadn’t ran into the ground around town that didn’t fall on the weekend.
Upon walking in, it was love at first site. The spot is cute, quaint, and minimally decorated. The front lobby has sofas, arm chairs, with quirky coffee mugs and cute home decor for sale on display. The art work on the walls is the real star of the show. Bold colors of portraits depicting MLK, Rupaul, and Ghandi are hand painted on the walls. When you plan on going here, be photo ready.
To my luck I wore bright clothes so it totally went well for my IG reel lol.
Service at Tulua Bistro
Reading the reviews there were a few complaints about long wait times and service being slow. It was a Tuesday about 1:00pm, we didn’t have to wait because no one was there. However, As cute as this spot is, I can see there being a wait on weekends. This is an IT place. Neil was our server and not only was he FABULOUS he took amazing care of us. He was extremely charismatic and knowledgable about the menu.
You can tell he loves his job, and I love him for it.
Tulua Bistro Menu
Tulua Bistro offers all day breakfast and lunch items. They have a huge menu that includes bowls, handhelds, bagels, Benedicts, and breakfast platters. You can get anything from lox to steak. And they offer vegetarian friendly options. This is the go to for all your breakfast desires.
With all that they offer Neil immediately recommended the bottomless mimosas and a breakfast board. A breakfast board!? Yes. You’ve heard of a Charcuterie board? The breakfast board is that but an array of breakfast food. A foodie’s dream.
You have a choice of the chef’s pick in small, medium, or large. Or, you can build your own board for about $10 more in each size. I’m a little controlling when it comes to my food so we went with the build your own option.
What I ordered
Bottomless Mimosas –
Pineapple juice with a sweet bubbly. Sooooo good. Almost too good I couldn’t stop drinking it. The cup was a good portion. We ended up drinking one and a half. We were allowed to take one home. Shhhh.
When you choose a build your own option you’re given a menu of everything thats available and how many of each is designated. Trust me it’s a lot. The medium is more than enough for 2-3 people it cost about $49. You get 3 Sides, 2 sweets, 2 meats, and 1 specialty item. A breakdown of each item…
3 Sides | Eggs, Hash Browns, Fruit
The eggs were scrambled perfectly and delicious. The fruit was sweet and fresh. It included strawberries, pineapple, blueberries, and grapes. The hash browns were Mcdonald’s style and seasoned with something that made them superb. I seriously couldn’t stop eating them.
2 Sweets | French Toast and Pancakes
The pancakes were buttery and already sweet they needed little syrup as they were already delicious. I haven’t had pancakes this good in a while. The french toast was different as well, i’m not sure how it’s prepared but they are crunchy and sweet. Amazing if you ask me.
2 Meats | Bacon and Turkey Sausage
I don’t eat pork, my friend had our serving but judging at the fact she ate the whole side, it had to be good. The turkey sausage are links and great.
1 Specialty item | Crab Cakes
The crab cakes were on the smaller size but packed a punch of flavor. Neil brought us a Jacksonville made hot sauce, I can’t recall the name. However, it was a little spicy with a hint of sweet.
The presentation of the board was beautiful. When it was sat down at the table I was enticed. Everything was hot and fresh. Each portion was huge, even with two of us we still had left overs. Totally worth the price.
What I Wore
Going to brunch calls for a simple look. I decided to go with jeans and a t-shirt… sprinkled with glam on top.
For The Jawns
I wore a t-shirt from one of my favorite brands For The Jawns. It’s a black-owned female ran t-shirt site based in Philadelphia, Pa. I’m wearing the Boujee Jawn Tee. However, the color “Strawberry lemonade” was a limited edition tee. The print is still offered on the site in black, white, grey, and beige.
I have more than a few products from this brand and I love them all. Great quality and fast shipping.
Truth is, I’ve have these jeans for over 7 years! It’s amazing I can still fit them, especially after having a whole baby. Anyway, they are some Levi’s 501 jeans I found at a thrift store. They were not purchased with all the rips and tears. In fact, I found a video on youtube and destroyed them myself. I can’t remember the exact video, butthere’s an example.
To date, they are a favorite pair of go to jeans.
My lovely rainbow bag came from Kurt Geiger it was gifted for my birthday back in March. I’ve been dying for a reason to wear it, so a colorful a bright shirt and shoes made all the sense. The earrings were snagged from Nasty Gal a few months ago and the sunglasses actually were one of the six pairs I talked about in the article about Cheap Sunglasses you can find links for these and five other cute shades to add to any look.
My shoes were purchased online at Asos. Unfortunately this particular pair is sold out. However, I found a very similar pair on Amazon.
Tulua Bistro is not only delicious it’s a hip place to eat. I will not only return to try different breakfast boards. I want to eat everything on the menu! If you’re in the Jacksonville area and looking for delish breakfast, this is a sure fire way to achieve that mission. remember this place is extremely aesthetically pleasing if you’re into taking photos from the gram. Be sure to dress the part. Oh! Don’t forget to ask for Neil 🙂
