Looking for a bit of ‘joie de vivre‘ for brunch? take a trip out to Queen West just past Shaw St, for a visit to La Bréhandaise crêperie to indulge in traditional french galettes (buckwheat crepes), french wines, or if you prefer to stay local, quebec apple cider and cheeses. From the first step in, you’ll feel transported across the Atlantic right into rural France – fortunately sans the rude waitstaff.
The service was actually great – a testament to the beautiful and proud Britagne region laying west of Paris. Our hostess seated us inside initially and as soon as a table opened up on the patio asked if we’d like to enjoy the sunshine. Perfect timing as we were just polishing off our first glass of cider and were about to dig into galettes of emmental fromage et champinons. The sun was shining and the heat for probably our last summer weekend in Toronto was kicking in, but fortunately the trees made a great canopy but still allowing the sun to poke through. Fresh strawberries crepes and a cafe au lait to finish and you have your perfect French afternoon in the middle of Toronto. To top it off, Pascal Poilbout, the Maître-Crêpier, will welcome you in, and make you never want to leave.
