Simple Cafe

15 Jul

We finally checked out this cute little breakfast and lunch spot on Farwell. It touts a commitment to using locally grown seasonal ingredients, as much as possible, and creating familiar foods with inventive twists. I’d have to say they deliver on that promise.

For example, I had the mushroom omelet with shiitake, oyster and button mushrooms, shallots, fresh thyme and Gruyère cheese, and it was superb. C. had the “Simple” benedict with herbed polenta w/chicken sausage, poached eggs, asparagus w/Creole hollandaise. Spicy, but very good.

Next time I think I will try the oat pancakes topped w/fresh bananas, candied walnuts and rosemary & orange whipped cream or perhaps the Maple Glazed Pork Belly Bird In A Nest with Brioche, eggs, maple glazed pork belly and caramelized onions. As you can see, it really is quite an inventive menu.

And the space itself is a delight. Very open and airy and colorful. Great little place to check out for breakfast or lunch. However, don’t expect to have a mimosa on your Sunday morning brunch, they don’t have a liquor license.
