Katie's Pizza and Pasta and Brunch

Even though I've been to Katie's several times now, I figure I should get to post about it again since Katie started up a new and separate brunch menu. Since the Rock Hill location is RIGHT up the street from my Sunday wine school, I figured this was a perfect excuse to check it out.

I appreciated that Katie's opened up at 10AM so that I wouldn't have to rush although I did have such a good time catching up with my cousins, that I still managed to be late to class. But it was worth it...

Since I had wine school, I did not partake in the bloody mary bar or bellini bar (you can choose your fruit!), but there are a lot of options. (I guess I'll have to go back?)

Speaking of a lot of options, even though it was brunch, we still managed to get a little carried away ordering appetizers for brunch. Who does that? Let's just say my goal is to try just about everything on the menu and expanding it to brunch has made it that much more challenging, which you know I'm up for!

My cousin recently moved back to St. Louis and his girlfriend has never been so I wanted to make sure they were introduced to the best of the "new" St. Louis. Yes, the one that is now a foodie capital!

We started off with a mushroom burrata, which was quickly followed up by fried artichokes. Both were delicious and could easily make the perfect breakfast or lunch with just appetizers. (Not like that would stop me!)

I played it safe and ordered the 3 Wood Oven Eggs (I didn't know you could cook eggs in a pizza oven!) that came with (homemade, I assume) fiama sausage, calabrese peppers, and fingerling potatoes. (My fork guard was already up apparently.)

Patience ordered the Asparagus & Artichoke Frittata, which was my second choice. Both dishes were large and filling, especially with the potatoes.

My cousin ordered a mushroom crepe...it was adorable!

Again, we'll have to go back because pretty much everything looked delicious...and that is if you can ignore the pizza and pasta that are also available!

Can't wait to go back...yes, again. For this...
