Le Petit Dejeuner (@petidejeuner) has been a part of the St. Lawrence Market neighbourhood for the last decade, serving up plates of comfort food, Belgian-Canadian style. They have quite a reputation for themselves as a good brunch spot. On a lazy Sunday afternoon, the place was crawling with brunch diners and we waited for about half an hour for a table for three. I think the fares that were served up compensated for the long wait, but I still wish they took weekend brunch reservations. Weekends are precious and I don't want to spend it waiting to get into a restaurant in the bitter cold.
My dining companions had the special of the day, consisting of French toast, sausage, egg any style and apple slaw. This plate looked to be a great sampler plate, with the best of all worlds, sweet and savoury.

I had one of their brunch favourites, toast champignon with a poached egg, consisting of a poached egg sitting on top of a bed of sauteed mushrooms, onions, herbs and bacon, covering half of a toasted bagel. It was served with a side of apple coleslaw and a crispy potato rosti. I love mushrooms and the sauteed mushroom was lovely. The poached egg was cooked perfectly and I asked for a side of hollandaise sauce. The velvety hollandaise sauce and the warm rich yolk made this dish perfect in my books.

Their Belgian waffles were fluffy, light but also creamy at the same time. The powder sugar dusted over the waffles added a nice sweet touch.

I had a lovely time at Le Petit Dejeuner. Like I always say, great food and even better company. I can't ask for more! (I can, but I don't want to seem greedy.)
