Hawaii Mom Blog: Orchids Sunday Sparkling Brunch

Orchids Sunday Sparkling Brunch

Halekulani's Sunday Brunch at Orchids has been a long time family favorite to celebrate special occasions and now it has gotten more sparkling! Gone are the plexiglass partitions, but what remains is the impeccable service and quality of food that you know comes with your experience at the Halekulani Hotel. The award-winning brunch has been enhanced with additional carving stations, a weekly seafood creation, ice cream sundae bar, selections from Halekulani Bakery, and two glasses of your choice of prosecco, mimosas, kir cocktail or sparkling cider.

Hawaii Mom Blog was invited to a media event to experience first hand the new Orchids Sunday Sparkling Brunch and it was a wonderful and delicious experience. The open air restaurant is bright and elegant with gorgeous views of the ocean and Diamond Head which makes for the perfect setting to enjoy your Sunday brunch. 

When I brunch with my family at Orchids, my husband and I like to begin with coffee and prosecco or a brunch cocktail and the kids have juice (our fave is POG). We put in an order of eggs benedict for me, pancakes and waffles to share, and a soup of the day with our server before making our first trip to the buffet. My husband likes to begin with all things seafood which includes offerings of freshly shucked oysters, chilled jumbo shrimp, and deep water snow crab. My daughter usually opts for a made to order omelet and hits the pastry selections while my son fills his plate with an assortment of sushi, poke, bacon, and sausage. I like to start with fresh fruit and a couple of the chef prepared salads. On the second trip, we usually visit one of the grand carving stations which now offers Waimanalo Raised Suckling Pig, Prime Rib, Pineapple Glazed Baked Ham, Sage Roasted Tom Turkey, BBQ Beef Brisket, and a Seafood Selection. We end with several trips to the dessert station which looks like it has expanded triple fold since my last time there and features Halekulani's signature coconut cake and custom ice cream station.

I love the sparkling feature of brunch!

My first plate. Pacing myself.  Enjoyed spicy eggplant salad and spicy poke with some breakfast meats and fruit.

Second plate included delicious salmon and ahi maki sushi, beef brisket with veggies, and custom kimchi ramen from the Ramen station!

You can order pancakes and waffles for your table, but this was for me.

Do not miss the Halekulani popover with Poha Berry Jam! 

I ended my brunch with so many sweet treats!

The legendary buffet has something for everyone to enjoy and combined with the excellent service will make for a remarkable brunch experience. The cost for Orchids Sparkling Sunday Brunch is $105.00 for adults and $55.00 for children 5-12 plus tax and gratuity.
