Looking for a casual and delicious brunch spot? Biscottis is the place to go. Located in the historic and picturesque Avondale neighborhood of Jacksonville, this restaurant has it all. Biscottis is able to accommodate large groups with its very spacious interior and if you prefer to dine while enjoying the sunshine, there’s limited outdoor seating with several tables for two and a first-come first-serve attitude.
The outdoor seating was exactly what the doctor ordered – so was the Bellini. They offer up freshly-squeezed orange juice for their mimosas and peach puree bellinis on their brunch menu. The bellini comes in a large wine glass and is elegantly garnished with a strawberry. Perfect way to start the weekend!
Now for their menu. Biscottis has several menus, including a fantastic looking gluten-free menu with certified GF bread for those with dietary restrictions. Along with a fabulous brunch menu, they also have their regular menu with plenty of share plates, salads, sandwiches, pizzas, and a kid’s menu.
So what was the selected menu choice of the day, you ask? Oh the suspense! Pictured below is possibly the most perfectly sweet French Toast known to mankind. If you’re a French Toast fiend and you find Crème Brûlée irresistible, then this menu item is a must as this is the lovechild of the two.
Introducing the Crème Brûlée French Toast that you will only find on Biscottis Brunch Menu. The freshly baked soft and delectably chewy bread is lovingly spread with an Orange-Honey Glaze which is then flame torched and topped with a slightly sweet Mascarpone Cream that adds a cooling contrast.
But wait, there’s more. It’s not a meal until you add the two included sides. Pictured below with the French Toast is a side of their fruit salad which comes with cubed cantaloupe, honeydew, orange, strawberry, and grapes that’s all lightly tossed in a house-made mint syrup.
The best part about your meal coming with two sides? Options. All that sweet needed to be balanced out with some savory so the cheesy creamy grits was a no brainer. These grits are incredible. Fluffy. Creamy. Savory. Cheesy. Need I say more? The whole meal was a star including the prompt yet relaxed service. Check out Biscottis next time you find yourself in the Avondale neighborhood. Or heck, just go there the next time hunger strikes!
