This place offers some amazing New-England-meets-Montreal goodness. Who knew maple syrup went so well with everything?
$1.00 oysters! (Or were they buck fifty each, I don’t remember … but these were one of the few items on the menu without the drizzle or a hint of maple syrup.)
Maple Eggs — Subtly sweetened egg custard and fluffy scrambled eggs, topped with maple-flavored bacon. (These weren’t real egg shells; they were reusable silicon egg-shaped container, in case you were wondering.)
Kale salad, with avocado, egg crumbles, red onion, and oranges, tossed in light tangy dressing. I’m not sure how this gentle, arugula-like leaves can be kale, but it was delicious!
Breakfast Burrito. This was so good — with scrambled egg, pork rind, fried onion rings, and cheese wrapped in tortilla — it makes ordinary breakfast burrito want to hide under the cover. It’s even more amazing with maple syrup.
Lobster Roll (Montreal Style with three slices of brisket). It’s incredibly steep at $29, but is worth the splurge.
Poutine. I’ve never heard of this dish before, but I guess this French fries drenched in gravy, cheese curd, maple syrup, and eggs, is a famous dish in Quebec.
Apple Cider Donuts with maple syrup. Mmmm.
I really missed the baby but it was nice to have a few hours of grown-up time with my husband, wonderful friends, and a glass (or two) of fruity Rose.
Thanks for the great recommendation, J!
