great brunch joint on Main...with a ~spooky~ feel
Excellenttt brunch. Both my dining companions (and I) enjoyed our dishes very much. On this morning, I opted for the Venison Benny (with mushrooms and homemade-herb ricotta cheese). The hollandaise sauce was very good - not too yolk-y or runny. The venison flank was grilled to perfection and was of marvelous texture. I loved the accompanying fingerling potatoes (felt so much healthier as opposed to the usual deep fried hashbrowns/potatoes) and the paired fruit was good too (a slice watermelon, honey dew, pineapple and orange).
We also were served delicious bread (focaccia and a raisin bread) with even more appealing types of butter: spicy and a raisin rum butter (which was sweet). The butter was light and fluffy (which I loved) and it paired extremely well with the bread. Oddly, the bread was served the same time as when our food arrived.
My smoothie wasn't too thick and was a great boost for the morning. Weird thing was that it was served a huge wine (?) glass and the other downside was the price: $6.95! It wasn't worth it but I really didn't feel like having tea or anything else, lol.
Great. Our server was nice and chattable. The owner (pretty sure) kept on checking up on us from time to time and was quite pleasant.
Strawberry, organge and banana smoothie - $6.95 (:S)
Very Main Street-esque. The whole restaurant is clad in dark wooden tables and chairs, with imitation wooden trees throughout and canvas art for sale. It's totally got a grungey feel to it and I felt like I was walking through a haunted house on my way to the washroom. (edited: 'Eclectic' is the word that totally sums up this place!) Pretty cool.
Yay: Yummy-in-my-tummy brunch. Come here if your like the modern-grungey type of ambience :)
Nay: Looks kinda sketchy from the outside...but hey, hasn't your mom ever taught you to not 'judge a book by its cover'?
