Mercasa introduces a new eating style to the city of Brantford—the popular Italian “fast casual” restaurant. The ‘Fast Casual’ trend has taken over the Italian market as it meets the needs of our generation’s busy lifestyle. It combines the convenience of ‘fast food’ with homemade-quality Italian cuisine, while offering you an elegant dining atmosphere.
Chefs at Mercasa prepare everything on the menu from scratch using only the finest ingredients available (local and organic wherever possible). At Mercasa you can easily dine in or take your food to go. Choose from an exquisite selection of mouth-watering options beautifully displayed, including: Roman Pizza, panini sandwiches, pasta, lasagna, soup, and don’t forget to save room for some delicious gelato.
Mercasa founder and executive chef Tom Mercante started in the kitchen at a very young age, working alongside his mother, both at home and in their family restaurant in Downtown Brantford. Tom and his family’s annual trips to Italy fuel his culinary passion, and trips around the world inspire him to try new recipes and foods. Preparing Italian Cuisine and the traditional Roman Style pizza for his Brantford Community has always been his dream.
Mercasa also Caters! Let Mercasa host your special event at your location or in their private dining room, with a choice of so many amazing dishes! They also cook for weddings and chef Tom will help you customize your menu according to your taste and budget.
So next time you dine in or take out, why not give Mercasa a try? Visit this Italian Cuisine for an amazing dinner that will leave you wanting more!
