I'm very fortunate to live a few minutes walk away from Edgar. I can pick up supper from there on my way back from work.

The owner is very friendly and welcoming.

Her pecan/caramel muffin is one of my favorites. And the avocado panini is the best that I've tried so far.

Holy heck. Marysol's opening weekend went off pretty much without a hitch. Andrew and I went on Sunday and were pleased to find operations in full swing and the whole neighbourhood there. Luckily, they were leaving, and so we got a seat. Edgar has a good selection of nice teas from the around the corner on Eddy Street (Cha Yi) and delicious coffee. For breakfast, Marysol has an assortment of pastries, from cinnamon brioche rolls with dates and bacon (incredible) to lemon scones. My husband had the oatmeal-pecan-caramel muffin, which kind of looked like a pecan pie, but in muffin form. Nothing wrong with that.

The service is good, and the space. Oh, the space. It's brightly lit and calming. It's very open and welcoming. I swear, if she were closer, this would be my morning coffee haunt. (That said, I do plan on being back very very soon!)

Edgar is opening this Saturday, October 30! Marysol is a very well respected food blogger and well regarded within Ottawa's food scene. I'm quite excited to see what Edgar has on offer!

If you want to find out more about what Marysol has been working on, she details it in her blog (sheeatsbears.blogspot.com)

My wife and I still love to come here whenever we get a chance, as the brunch offerings are always interesting and always excellent! If you happen to find the lemon/lime square when you're there, be sure to try it... incredible!!

Pork schnitzel, potato, sauteed cabbage and pork belly with a smoked broth and two poached eggs! Another outstanding dish from Edgar. One thing I love about Edgar is their creatively​ persistent use of cabbages. They always seem to deliciously incorporate this typically boring vegetable into some of the best dishes I've ever experienced. Yum.

Truly outstanding Dutch baby! Edgar continues to produce some of the best dishes in the area and the Dutch baby is no exception. The pork belly, cheese and apple combo is incredible! Though I did find the dish to be just on the edge of too sweet, if you plan your bites right you will be rewarded with an amazing balance of sweet/salty/smokey/rich/tart flavours.

"Pea Meal" — incredibly delicious dish of chard, Brussels sprouts with smoky pork belly and mustard seed, giant potato croquette, thick pea meal bacon, poached eggs, and hollandaise sauce! My wife said this was her absolute favourite of all Marysol's amazing dishes over the years. From what I tasted, I think I agree!

We arrived at 10:10, just after opening (probably the least strategic arrival time possible) and we were seated half an hour later. That people are willing to wait outside in the cold, or stand shoulder-to-shoulder inside, is a testament to the quality and uniqueness found on each plate. In my books this continues to be the Ottawa area's best brunch.

"Mijoté" — a wonderfully delicious brunch plate of stewed tomatoes, onions, peppers, and Italian sausage, tender kale, breaded eggplant, buffalo mozzarella, panini toast, and of course two perfect poached eggs!

When I saw Marysol post on Instagram that one of this weekend's dishes contained chanterelles I had no choice but to visit. What a beautiful dish this was! And it tasted wonderful too. Emmenthal and scape strata, with chard, double-smoked lardons, chanterelle mushrooms, poached eggs, and parmesan.

Excellent!

With both kids at a play date, wifey and I jumped at the chance to get a late brunch. It was still busy when we arrived at 1:30 but we were somehow seated without a wait.

The food was as great as ever! I had the Dutch Baby and also pilfered some of the sumptuous duck from my wife's amazing dish. As usual, Marysol's ingredient combinations are quite magical.

The Dutch Baby and the Heuvos Rancheros have been on the menu for a long time, while the third dish keeps changing. Highly recommend this "third dish" if you can get there in the near future.

I took a salted caramel cookie to go, and two "Mini Eggs" cookies for the kids. Rave reviews all around!

Here is a picture of the wonderful Dutch Baby. Apples, strong cheddar and pork belly on a fluffy round crepe.

I had to try the Dutch baby. It was apples, pork belly and huge chunks of hard cheddar on a big round fully crepe. The pork belly was slightly crisp on the outside and moist. The cheddar and the pork balanced the sweetness of the apples and the pancake crust was SO fluffy and slightly eggy. I need to learn how to make this kind of pancake.

My husband had the Lumberjack breakfast (pictured) which was also a perfect breakfast plate. He made me try a bit of everything on his plate and had a grin throughout his entire meal which is the first time I have seen him like this during a meal! The dish consisted of sausages, maple candied double smoked bacon, red turnip, 2 poached eggs covered in a salty herb sauce, baked beans, fingerlings potatoes, pouding chômeur and toasts. He loved every bite!

Yes, there will be a wait. We have been at the door before and had to leave because we did not have the time to wait. But was it worth it? YES! A truly original breakfast. We also bought a few pastries to go and those were very good, in particular, the lemon beignets.

Another rave for the Huevos Rancheros!! My takeout order, plated at home, is pictured. This meal was a simply delicious combination of flavours. The potatoes, as noted, were perfect.

I heard so many compliments from other customers as I waited for my food and I was sorely tempted by all the baked goods on display at the counter. This is a great place to visit.

This gorgeous little thing is like the love child of a three-way between a home made cinnamon doughnut, pound cake, and lemon meringue pie. There's a hint of tangy lemon curd inside that plays wonderfully with the dense cake and the light cinnamon sugar crust.
