The Best Brunch Menu in the Triangle

Monday, September 15th, 2014

Brunch-Salads-Raleigh-NCDuring this lovely late summer season, Mia Francesca Trattoria welcomes our guests to enjoy our bountiful Brunch on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Our popular brunch menu brings people from all over to enjoy this wonderful experience. We also feature fine farm to table daily selections for lunch and dinner as well.

Our delicious Frittata Saltimbocca is quite a mouthful to say, yet totally worth requesting every time for our Brunch. This Italian dish at Mia Francesca Trattoria is incredibly delightful. Frittata in Italian roughly translates to “egg-cake” and complementing the baked frittata style eggs are farm fresh vine ripe tomatoes, fontina, and arugula. Saltimbocca translates from Italian to English in a fun way as “jumps in the mouth” (meaning your taste buds awaken to its amazing flavors) and it includes our prosciutto and fresh sage. A creamy basil hollandaise covers this delightful meal.

Our quenching brunch drinks include seasonal libations, fresh juices, and milk. With any of our tasty brunch selections, we offer a variety of savory side dishes:

  • Ciabatta Toast
  • Bacon (cooked how you like it)
  • Italian Sausage
  • Two Eggs (Any Style)
  • Fresh Fruit
  • House Fried Potatoes
  • Cheesy Polenta
  • Prosciutto di Parma
  • Fluffy Pancakes

Our Brunch menu extends beyond traditional breakfast to include homemade salads, pizza, pasta, and Panini. Crisp, fresh salads like our wonderful Caesar Salad or our Piselli Insalata which shows off our farm-fresh pea pods, tomatoes, and cucumbers are a great part of brunch. Many of our guests enjoy our authentic Italian Salsiccia Pizza with fennel sausage, sundried tomatoes, goat cheese, and mozzarella. Savor our classic Spaghetti and Meatballs in an authentic Italian tomato basil sauce; it is a true favorite. Finally, try our delicious Pollo Parmesan Panini with breaded chicken breast, tomato basil sauce, and shredded mozzarella on toasted ciabatta bread along with fries. With so much to choose from, including $ 3 Mimosa/ Bellini and our mouthwatering Calamari, we make the weekend an epicurean delight for everyone who visits and enjoys.

All of our guests agree that Mia Francesca’s is the place to be! Join us here in North Hills soon. We are just off the Raleigh Beltline at exit 8B, Six Forks North (North Hills); 20 minutes from anywhere here in the Triangle. As we get closer to fall, it soon will be the best time of year to see the changing colors across the Triangle and here in Raleigh. Our rustic Tuscan-Italian restaurant is centrally located with shops, boutiques, and a movie theater at the expansive North Hills in Midtown Raleigh.
