Lidia and I had been looking for a good brunch spot near home for a long time before we found Dead Man Espresso. The café is located only two blocks away from home and it is always crowded on weekends. We were seated at the balcony upstairs but it was uncomfortable. So, I requested to sit outside and luckily the staff agreed.

I went for the BLT Pork Belly & Spinach Puree on Brioche with Gazpacho ($16.50). Sadly, they ran out of brioche so they replaced mine with other type of bread L. The pork belly was nice, thick and juicy. The spinach puree made it more interesting. On the other hand, the gazpacho made it lighter.

Lidia opted for the Hotcakes with Banana Cream Custard, Maple Caramel, & Cinnamon crunch ($14). I took a small bite of it. To my surprise, it was not extremely sweetened and the crumble was very enjoyable.

Dead Man Espresso has a great selection of food and a perfect location for me. BUT I'm not going to visit it on weekends as it will be too crowded.
