I can say my husband and I are almost reaching our goal to be experts in Toronto brunches. This summer we went to a lot of places downtown. Last Sunday we ate at the Weslodge Saloon for the first time.
We didn’t plan to go there. As we were out of ideas, we decided to walk on King St W to choose a place. My husband always tries to convince me to go to Portland Variety, one of our favorites, and this time was no exception, but I did want to try a new place.
We passed by Weslodge colorful sign and got intrigued. Actually, we already got intrigued about the bold yellow door in the past but never walked in. Last Sunday we finally did.
I always imagined it as a modern place because of the door, but to our surprise it has a classical elegant interior. I even classifies it as a place that comes to mind when we think of a traditional brunch restaurant.
The brunch menu is also traditional and it includes our sweetheart: Eggs Benedict 😍. Of course we ordered it. My husband chose black pepper bacon ($15) but I got smoked trout ($16) (you know, trying to eat healthy, lol).
We both ordered with potatoes but you can choose a green salad instead.
For me, the best of this dish was the black pepper biscuit. It has a homemade taste and it’s simply delicious. I could eat this everyday.
As we don’t like to drink alcohol in the morning we got black coffee and agreed it was the best brewed coffee we had at any Toronto brunch so far. Strong enough, but not too bitter.
If you like mimosas at your brunch, the good news is you can buy bubbled drinks for half price on Sundays.
