M Italian is a premier brunch spot in Chagrin Falls. Regardless of the season, their spot is warm and inviting. During the winter, enjoy their covered patio which lets in the glowing sunshine and the cozy fireplace keeps the room warm and comfortable. Our experience started with their house pressed coffee, very much a step up from the typical cup of coffee you’ll find. A Bloody Mary is usually the way brunch drinkers get started but we decided to go with a Bloody Maria and let the tequila start our morning. And it was a good choice. They use a base mix but after the special additions that only Elliot knows, this Bloody Maria was truly unique and full of flavor.
With around 8 items on their brunch menu, there is something for everyone. They also have non meat items for the vegetarian crowd. We would suggest the Ricotta Banana Pancakes every time. It’s one of the best breakfast desserts we’ve had. There wasn’t any dish we didn’t like. They all have their own identity and own mix of flavors. However there was one dish that really stood out and that was the Steak and Eggs. The steak was cooked and seasoned to perfection. The quality of the meat was far beyond what most would consider the norm and we also really enjoyed the poached egg compared to the typical sunny side up. With the addition of the arugula salad, you are able to cleanse your palate after each bite so you continue to enjoy the dish, it feels like you are tasting it for the first time with each and every bite.
The combination of quality food, gorgeous atmosphere and superb staff makes the experience to M Italian the perfect way to start your Saturday or Sunday. Brunch is served both days from 10am to 3pm. It’s inviting, warm and you leave with a huge smile and full happy belly. Now, it’s time for the food coma to kick and grab a power nap before heading to the park for a hike with the dog.
Thank you to Jen, Elliott, Bret and the rest of the crew that made our trip there so enjoyable. Happy Brunching Cleveland.
