Brunch at St. Francis in Central Phoenix is ridiculous. In an amazing kind of way! The portions are generous and the flavors are on point. We started our culinary adventure with the Cinnamon Roll and Caramel Sauce. WOW! It’s HUGE! We were digging in before I realized we hadn’t taken a picture of it! But trust me… It’s *delicious* and a must have!
We chased it down with a Bloody Mary. It’s not really Brunch if you don’t have a Bloody Mary! We ordered ours spicy and it didn’t disappoint! Made with Finlandia Vodka, a mix of house spices and fresh citrus… you can’t go wrong.
For our main Brunch course… I decided on the Housemade Biscuit- with Schreiner’s fennel sausage and fried eggs. It’s not my mama’s biscuits and gravy, but it was delicious in its own special way! I’m super picky when it comes to biscuits and gravy. I’m confident in saying that the Housemade Biscuit at St. Francis rivals any I’ve had. It’s rustic, yet refined. The sausage gravy was creamy. Decadent. Not greasy. And not overly salty, as you often find in this dish. I love this dish because it had everything I crave at breakfast- eggs, carbs, meat and creamy gravy as a bonus!
My counterpart ordered the Mushroom Omelette, but prefers all egg whites. That’s not a problem at St. Francis. Just ask! It comes smothered in a tasty combination of braised leeks, roasted mushrooms, thyme and goat cheese. It also comes with a nice piece of homemade bread. Yum! Let’s talk flavor. One word. Savory! If you enjoy eating on the lighter side but don’t want to miss out on flavor… this is your dish!
Before we left… we ordered the signature Brick Oven Baguette to go. At only $3- it’s a no brainer. We lightly warmed it up and enjoyed it with our dinner at home that evening!
St. Francis sources their ingredients from the local farming community. This is something we truly love about them. The food is fresh and we’re supporting our neighbors by eating local. The heart of St. Francis is their brick, wood burning oven. It’s this authentic method of cooking and freshly sourced ingredients, that keep us coming back to St. Francis. Try them!
