I had a fantastic veggie panini here last week. Cheddar jalapeno bread, warm goat cheese, and incredible roasted tomatoes stand out in my mind. I'm still thinking about how good that sandwich was. I'll be trying their brunch and take home items next.

A pumpkin donut. TO DIE FOR!

I had the Lemon beignet as well and it is that good!

I also bought the chicken cassoulet and the butternut soup. Both were terrific. It tasted homemade and were made with fresh ingredients.

I am looking forward to trying the brunch. I have not been yet because I have a toddler and it would be uncomfortable.

Her sweettooth:

Having absolutely no will power, I indulged. The Lemon Beignet - so perfectly pretty I didn’t want to eat it, nutmeg batter, filled with lemon curd and tossed in a light cinnamon sugar. Opening it was like cracking a lovely little egg, tangy and creamy, toasty and cakey, sugary and sweet.

Chez Edgar: The prices are reasonable, the food is terrific, the service is warm, it’s only drawback is its size, you may have to line up to take your turn at the counter. One might suggest it could be time (dare I say)... to grow.

Sassy Sandwich!

His sandwich: fresh figs, provolone, brie, prosciutto and arugula ($7.00). Chef B’s eyebrows went up, his review (between bites) was “tasty little sandwich!” You have no idea the weight this holds (particularly after I made him wait an hour because I got my times wrong) it means we’ll be back... and likely it'll be him insisting we get take-out too.

YIPEE!

So....does CE serve only breakfast and brunch?

Two weekends in a row for Saturday brunch here (could not resist returning!). This is a lovely place tucked away on a side street in the Hull sector.

Food tried was superb both times (fresh ingredients combined into interesting flavours):
- Leger plate (poached eggs on toast + greens)
- sweet potato gratin, toulouse sausage, poached eggs, beurre brun, spiced rosemary pecans
- blueberry scone
- lemon and chocolate/orange beignets (pieces of heaven!)

Excellent coffee too.

Service is a delight. The preferred language of the servers seems to be French, however, they are happy to try out their English and it is more than sufficient.

The place is small – inside I think they have 2 tables for 2, one for 3 and bar stools at the front window. When the weather is nice their seating is doubled with the front patio. We luckily did not wait long for a table but groups of 4 and larger had to wait close to 15 minutes around 11am on Saturday. Don't get me wrong though, they do more than their best to accommodate.

They also have a small counter inside which has bakes goods, sandwiches and some take home items (although someone asked to have a “take home” warmed and they obliged).

I will absolutely be visiting again soon.

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!

2015 Jul 12
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.
