This is what I envision a typical brunch to feel like – old-school and homey. It has that open, warm and relaxing vibe; perfect for both families and their children to those flying solo hoping to catch up on a good read.
I arrived around noon and the restaurant was quite full. I know… noon is a bit late for brunch but it’s brunch-o-clock somewhere in the world right? I ordered a coffee and sat on a bench along the wall, checking up on my emails as I waited to be seated and for the rest of my brunch girls to arrive – even the coffee mug felt like I was right at home.
As the sun shines through the window, I couldn’t help but come to a realization that this is the perfect breakfast/brunch spot I’ve been missing out on since Hello Darling first opened up for business.
Hello Darling’s menu changes throughout the seasons, so there are always those minor menu changes every few months. Here’s an idea of what we ordered during the month of October: Sunny Eggs on Sweet Potato & Black Bean Quesadilla and Breakfast Poutine.
Both were very delicious: poutine was packed with flavour and the addition of the salad and fruit was nice to cool down the flavour from the poutine; quesadilla had that perfect crunch and mixture of black bean and sweet potato with the eggs once broken.
At the end of our meal, we had a sweet treat to cap off the meal.
It’s goodbye for now, but I’m sure I’ll be find myself saying “Hello Darling” once again just to see what their kitchen is cooking up next!
