Former Liberty Belle Bistro owner/chef Aidan Pascoe comes back swinging with an extremely limited weekend brunch card in a laid-back coffee house close to Kensington. Latte art by former Bulldog barrista Bruce Ly makes the inevitable gaps in service more entertaining.
Best: to start, house-baked muffins stuffed with cream cheese; herbed baguette piled with truffled 'n' scrambled free-range eggs sided with white Sanagan's breakfast bangers and deliciously dilled potato salad; thick slices of challah French toast one of two ways, either sweet with caramelized banana and Nutella or layered with sweetly pulled Mennonite pork and maple hollandaise, the latter additionally sided with a very good arugula salad tossed with walnuts and strips of apple in fruity vinaigrette.
Complete brunches for $30, including tax, tip and a glass of wine. Average main $12. No reservations. Licensed. Access: barrier-free.
