It was about time to taste brunch at Cluny Bistro and Boulangerie. We’ve been there for a Saturday night date and since then we were curious about their breakfast as well. And as Toronto starts to reopen we decided to finally go there.
Cluny is one of the most charming french bistros here in Toronto. Its interior is very elegant (you can see it on this post) but the patio… wow… it’s gorgeous! It features an arch covered with artificial (yet so vivid!) vines. You feel like you’re in a Parisian courtyard.
But let’s talk about the food. It was exactly as I remembered: elegant and tasty.
Hubby and I ordered the same: Short Rib Harsh ($26) with braised beef short rib, caramelized onion, french onion jus, fried fingerling potatoes and grilled sourdough. Despite short ribs being a fat meat, the taste was very subtle. Besides, the sauce added a sweet touch to it.
Cris ordered a cappuccino ($3.95) and, thank God, they served it in a traditional cup (it’s not always the case). I asked if they serve drip coffee – which they don’t – but the waitress never told me they serve french press coffee. We’ve only seen the other tables sharing it later and would love to have the same.
That’s ok, I ordered a Lavender Mocktail ($7) with Lime Juice, Homemade Lavender Syrup, Muddled Blueberries and Soda Water; and it was delicious!
