ST. PETE BEACH, FL (03/10/14) – Weekends in the Sea Porch Restaurant at Loews Don Cesar are about to go “sunny side up!” And why not, with St. Pete Beach being one of America’s Best Beaches, who wouldn’t want to enjoy a mid-morning brunch near the beach – whether al fresco or in the comfort of the casual, yet refined, Sea Porch Restaurant.

 This March the Sea Porch began serving a weekend a la carte brunch menu as iconic as the Pink Palace herself.  Say goodbye to chafing dishes and Sterno, and be prepared to experience brunch cuisine with as much character as Loews Don Cesar and the staff that created it!

 “Weekend brunch can be whatever we want it to be!” boasted Kenny Hunsberger, Executive Chef at Loews Don Cesar. “Our guests are unique and special and they expect their dining experience to be as memorable and locally genuine as their stay at The Don. That’s why we created what we feel is a departure from the traditional Sunday Brunch to what you’ll see on our new menu,” he continued.

 Items range from Coconut Pancakes with mango, mint, and key lime chantilly, served with a special ginger maple syrup to the Cuban Eggs Benedict – Cuban bread topped with roast pork, ham, Swiss cheese and a tasty mustard cream. There’s also the Ginger Beer Short Rib with sweet potato hash accented with shallot straws.

 Certain to become a house favorite will be Chef Kenny’s spin on the Chicken & Waffle, featuring buttermilk fried chicken and malted waffles served with coffee syrup and candied bacon! Sure to be a Sea Porch show stopper!


Brunch is offered Saturday and Sunday’s from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. in the Sea Porch Restaurant. Entrees start at $9 and may be complimented by one of several specialty cocktails including the Sea Porch Mary, Save Me Sangria or the 1-2-3 Punch!

 After dining, guests can stay and enjoy the amenities of Loews Don Cesar Hotel including its famed beachfront, diverse watersport activities, or just lounge on a beach bed or chair (based on availability, additional charges may apply). Half-price beach chair rentals are available starting at 3 p.m.
