From their berry-covered mountain French toast to their artisanal coffee creations, Haus of Brunch in Auburn Hills has everything you need to start your day.
“It’s not your typical Coney Island food,” says co-partner Maher Obeid. “We wanted to have something a little higher.”
Obeid is the founder of the beautiful brunch abode. He comes from a family of restaurateurs and has owned several himself, but he saw a need in the area.
“It’s always been an idea for me to start a brunch house, around a halal concept,” says Obeid. “You know it’s still encompassing everyone to eat it, it’s just a way of having a little bit of compassion for animals.”
Halal, which means “permissible” in Arabic, means food preparation follows Islamic law, including things like the standards by which animals are cared for, and the lack of pork products and alcohol .
So in 2021 he decided to build his brunch house and he partnered up with Myron Clark with Chef Tabu Gantt.
“I would describe my food as elevated with a kind of southern flair,” says Gantt. “And flavors are like colors, they’re very bright and fresh flavors.”
Popular dishes include their chicken and waffles which are splattered with honey butter, and the shrimp and grits which are finished with rosemary butter. On the sweeter side of things, you have to see their gigantic overnight French toast which is double baked to really infuse all those delicious berry flavors. For seafood lovers, their delicious omelette is stuffed with shrimp and chunks of crab and finished with a seafood hollandaise sauce.
To go with all of their delicious brunch options are another morning favorite, specialty coffee drinks. They serve single origin coffee from Yemen, as well as popular tea drinks from the Middle East.
The atmosphere also needed to fit the menu, so they went for a modern, clean look.
“Everything we wanted to do, as far as looks, we wanted him to have this elevated look and feel,” Clark explains.
