I just want to say that Marysol and her staff continue to make some of the best if not THE best brunch and lunch fare in the city. With a sense of home cooked familiarity and a dash of refinement, it is one of my favourite places to eat. Today I particularly enjoyed an apple pecan bun that was quite delicious. Additionally, their coffee is some of the best in the city. Love Edgar! Also, their patio opens SOON.

Finally made it out to Chez Edgar - although not before opening, so even on a day of -30 temperatures, had to wait roughly 20 mins. As most reviewers comment, the Dutch baby really is fantastic. But the Lemon Beignet I took home for the next day - oh my god.

Superb food as always!

Guedille de crevettes (Shrimp roll) Everything about this sandwich was great. I wasn't sure about the dill pickle chips on top but it was a great topping. gave some crunch and flavor to the sandwich.

Veggie panini was good as always.

Banana and caramel brioche for dessert.

Never let down by this place.

Brunch is two meals, right? So dessert isn't really optional. This pistachio, fig, walnut, and honey brioche was just the thing to stuff myself so I could skip lunch completely. Gooey without being overly sweet, studded with nuts and little chunks of dried figs. Really nice!

I arrived around 9:20am on Sunday, ten minutes before opening. I was probably 18th in line or so, which means I didn't have to wait for a seat. Much later than that and you'll probably have to wait, but the turnover is pretty quick so likely not for too long.

Missladi, I know how you feel. I too love the food there but have stopped going there completely as we found we usually can't get a seat and living in Ottawa, take-out doesn't work very well for us. That said, I am happy they are doing so well, as they are so nice and the food is so very good. Maybe we will get lucky and one day they will open a bigger place.

Every single thing I've ever had at Edgar tasted, looked and smelled AMAZING. I've been there at least 30 times, had different sandwiches, soups, brunches, desserts, ready-to-cook. The mac n'cheese is particularly decadent. This place makes some of the best food in the entire Ottawa-Gatineau area.

That being said, though, it's so busy on weekends it's almost impossible to get a spot. I do like how small and quaint it is, but I'm selfish and would also like them to have a bigger restaurant so I wouldn't have to get take-out every time I plan to go. There is no room to wait for a table either. You have to stand in front of the menu board, about 3 inches away from people who are rightfully trying to enjoy their meal.

Picked up a few sandwiches at Edgar and was mightily impressed.

We got: the asian pork sandwich, the grilled veggie sandwich and the chicken caesar sandwich.

The bread on all three was knockout. The flavouring of the asian pork sandwich was surprisingly authentic from the bite I managed to steal, but my dad liked it so much that was all I managed to garner.

The grilled veggie sandwich was my favourite. The goat cheese paired very nicely with the chipotle mayo and grilled veggies and the texture of the bread really became apparent with all the saucey-ness going on in this sandwich.

The chicken caesar sandwich was also quite good, but not my favourite. Nothing wrong with it, it just didn't knock my socks off.

The Edgar square on the other hand, totally did. Definitely going back for one of those.

Service was friendly but hectic. They told us to wait outside and they'd call us up when our food was ready but they never called us. We ended up waiting far too long because we didn't realize our food was ready. Other than that, no complaints.

Also, the park is a nice short walk away and we spent a fantastic afternoon sitting by the water eating our sandwiches.

I was finally able to try brunch here today, as my young family and I could sit outside with the weather being good. I ordered the huevos rancheros, which were so yummy and satisfying, while my husband and son both had Dutch Babies stuffed with apples and cheddar. I could easily have eaten one of each dish, but restrained myself to stealing bites from my son's Dutch Baby. I also had a bite of the mango/ginger scone, which was delicious - good obvious ginger flavour and nice large pieces of mango. My decaf latte was really good too. What a great little place. I actually used to live right around the corner from here when I first moved to the area and find myself on the one hand wishing Edgar had been there there at that time and on the other hand grateful that it wasn't (as I was young and poor and would have spent entirely too much money).

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.

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.

Visited with my wife on Saturday morning. She thoroughly enjoyed the Léger plate of poached eggs that I had raved about on my previous visit. I opted for the other savoury menu option, the Huevos Rancheros.

This is another spectacular dish! From the topping of green salsa all the way down to the fresh dollop of guacamole that positions the toasted tortilla on your plate, the components are perfect. The salad is great and those adorable golden potatoes are insanely good!

I thought it was cool that the heuvos dish was garnished with white sesame seeds while the salad was garnished with black sesame seeds and white poppy seeds.

Once again, highly recommended!

This is the Léger brunch plate (one of three choices). Poached eggs on toast with some cured pork and various greens. Pretty standard, stuff, right? No!

Poached eggs: The most perfectly poached round little guys I've ever encountered.
Toast: Art-Is-In baguette crostini, made better through a magical soaking process. (First time I've ever seen anyone improve an Art-Is-In bread.) The crostini had bocconcini melted into them, and they were graced with small slices of roasted fennel and some luscious roasted cherry tomatoes (which I loved and I don't normally like cooked tomatoes).
Cured Pork: Slices of prosciutto, crisped up in a most magical way to make them into a better bacon -- crispy, tasty, and less greasy.
Greens: A wonderfully light dressing made this one of the nicest plain salads I've had.

If Atelier served brunch, I would expect something like this. The quality and flavour balance have been maximized to the point where I can't imagine how they could ever be improved.

One point of warning: this is not a hungry-man sized breakfast portion. However, if you understand enough French to read the menu, you'll already know that from this dish's name. ;-)

Besides, a smaller portion means there's room for a Beignet.

I had the Huevos Rancheros this past weekend and they were so lovely - every ingredient was clean and fresh! The egg was perfectly cooked, the portion size was perfect, although I felt like I could have eaten another one! The salsa verde was AMAZING! And I loved the side potatoes - new potatoes, roasted so that they were chewy on the outside and mashy inside, with just the right amount of salt. The receipt has it right - miam miam miam!! Very nice brunch.

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.
