The restaurant has a nice interior, but I know they are known for an awesome patio out back. The wait would have been 20 minutes for outdoor seating or a nice window seat was immediately available. A cozy little table for two? We'll take it!
The hostess opened the window for us, so we could enjoy the cool breeze.
Plus, I had a view of the patio!
Brunch is served from 10 to 230, with live jazz music from 11 to 130pm. The music was nice, not at all distracting.
I started with a delicious coffee, with milk, over ice.
For my main dish:Borsellino Ripieno
Little black forest ham "baskets" with soft polenta and topped with two poached eggs. A nice potato hash on the bottom. This is typically served with sauteed mushrooms, but that's not my thang.
I really enjoyed this! The ham was nice and crispy and the polenta was delicious. The eggs were cooked perfectly and I tried my hardest to get every flavor in each bite!
The entrees are served with a nice selection of fruit.
This was an odd meal for us because Darling Husband ordered a sweet dish, while I got the savory. We both tried each other's dishes though! Sharing is caring.
To complement his sweet french toast, a nice side of thick butcher bacon!
For his main dish, brioche French toast, served with whipped mascarpone and a fig syrup.
The French toast was really good, but the best part was the fig syrup, served in this cute little mug!
I liked the French Toast, but I think they had so many savory options that sounded even better.
However, both of our plates were completely cleaned, so I think we were more than happy.
Overall our experience was very good. Great service, delicious food, nice environment. Also, I appreciated that we didn't have to wait 30 minutes to eat. I think this would be a great spot for a romantic dinner, or fun brunch out with your girlfriends. Definitely appealing to many different people. I hope you'll check out this cute little neighborhood restaurant. Rumor has it, there is a nice little spot around the back for some good cocktails and bites: Cicchetti. I hope to try it soon!
Gotta run...brunch time!
