La Platea Centro

Scrambled eggs, mimosas, crispy fried bacon…our mouths are watering just thinking about the brunch menu at La Platea Centro!

The menu takes its inspiration from New York style brunches, and portions are generous enough that you’ll be full for hours. This is the place to be if you want to start your lazy Sunday on the most delicious note possible!
