I’ve already written about Le Select Bistro. We went there for an amazing dinner some months ago and since then wanted to come back for their brunch. Well, we finally tasted their weekend breakfast and, of course, I’m gonna tell you everything!
They have a brunch menu on weekends with some classic dishes, sandwiches and french options as well. Right now, I’m just thinking “I should have had the onion soup” 😂.
Before anything they served bread with butter. Maybe you already know this is a classic in France, but it’s also a classic in Brazil (my home country). We eat a lot of bread with butter, especially for breakfast. And the best part is that bread resembles our bread quite well.
I ordered something very French: crepes. I had the Crêpe au Sarrasin ($15.95), made of Buckwheat crêpe filled with House-cured ham, a sunny side up egg, melted Emmentaler and celeriac purée. It was very light – something rare in my brunch choices – but delicious. What I love about this place is the seasoning. For me that’s what makes a restaurant remarkable.
My husband ordered a Croque-Madame ($15.95), made of the classic gratinéed sandwich with ham and cheese, and served with frites. Oh, the frites! They’re the same served with the steak we had the other time we went there. I still think it’s the best I have had in Toronto so far.
When I was producing this post, I learned Le Select Bistro is at risk of closing due to the rise of the local property taxes. You can learn more about this issue and help this restaurant by signing and sharing this petition.
