Graffiato Brunch

I've yet to have a disappointing meal at Graffiato - and their brunch was no exception!  A group of lovely food blogger friends and I got together a few months ago to check it out soon after the brunch menu debut, and it was a delicious and fun time had by all :o)

Some coffee to start

The brunch menu

Cinnamon knots with Nutella.  These were good but not an absolute must-have dish, even as a huge fan of Nutella.

Apple Calzone - this wasn't my favorite, but that's mainly because I'm not a fan of fruit pies in general, and this was basically a giant fruit hand pie, haha.  If you like apple pies I'm sure you will love this.

Breakfast pizza with bacon, potato, broccolini, cheddar.  The addition of the barely-cooked egg on top really made this a rich and delicious pizza.

Roasted Sirloin with scrambled eggs and focaccia - the sirloin was tender and delicious, but a pretty small portion for sharing with others, just FYI.

Jersey Shore pizza - this is on the regular menu, but it's always a crowd favorite any time of the day, haha.

Spaghetti Carbonara with pancetta, parmesan, egg - I thought this was delicious, especially with the salty pancetta pieces cutting through the creamy sauce.

Not pictured is the Meatballs with creamy polenta and farmed egg - the combination of the three components made for a very soft plate altogether, but the meatballs were quite tasty.

Overall, this was a great brunch with some wonderful company, and I can't wait to go back to try their new brunch offerings!
