I’ve already said about all I can say about the burger – it was time to try brunch at Saint Dinette. My only issue with the regular menu is that my younger daughter is a picky eater and won’t be adventurous, while my wife is allergic to eggs and corn and won’t eat red meat (SK is always good for a burger and fries). The brunch menu had expanded options for Colleen and MK is still out of the country, so Sunday was the day to go.
You know it must be a good sign when there were people waiting outside the door to get in when I got back from my morning run. There were still a few tables open after I showered and changed, but it was almost completely full by the time we left. It will probably be even worse once the regular Farmer’s Market resumes next month.
We started off with the monkey bread (cream cheese frosting, $7), which might have to be served alongside that cheeseburger and fries during my last meal on Earth. I’ve always had a soft spot for Cinnabon amongst all the evil chain options, but damn, this thing just blew them out of the water. It was hard to really follow that up, but my crepe was really good (Canadian bacon, gruyere, truffle bechamel, egg, $13), while Colleen had granola and blueberries ($8) with a side of maple pork belly ($6). So tasty.
What can I say? Saint Dinette is one of the best amenities to living in Lowertown. Come early, come often…
