I’ve been reading through this blog site and noticed we haven’t blogged about brunch lately. Gah! Sacrilegious! The blog’s been a little serious of late. Why so cereal? Cereal??? Brunch, yes please.
Let me then enlighten you all on a great find in Hintonburg. Of course, the habitual would know it as Cafe My House the vegan goddess on Bank Street, which has now made the move to the mustache and Ray-Ban laden neighbourhood of Hintonburg.
The ladies and I decided to run on over to Cafe My House’s new digs on Sunday early afternoon to be pleasantly surprised by the zero wait and swift service. First thing I noticed about this sprawling resto was the minimalist design with dim lighting which added to my delight since we were a haggard sweaty bunch after our run. Also there was a letter “d” adorning the wall. Could there be more of a freaking sign?
Then the menus made their happy way to our table and OMG the smoothies were all to die for and that was just the first page. The hardest part is choosing one meal when you want them all. No judgement here if you order two...as I’ve been known to do on occasion ( ummm almost always).
The final answer was the Omega 3 flax seed waffles (gluten free yo!) with coconut vanilla whipped cream and date-maple caramel sauce. Droooool. My running buds had wisely chosen the Venice Beach Bowl, another GF option, with organic brown rice, kale, avocado, pear cabbage kimchi (hello pro-biotics) drizzled with a cashew tahini sauce and shaves of BBQ coconut bacon and a personal variation of the Superhero salad. I must confess that Cafe My House is my jam! The food, service and decor were absolutely stellar. We’ll definitely be back for another round at the House.
