I love brunch but almost always there was no time to go in the past year. However, I was determined to go this weekend and after some last minute research, we went to Grains Bistro. Grains Bistro is a modern, child-friendly, relaxed place. The patio looks great too but we decided to sit indoor by the windows anyway.
We were impressed by the toddler (under 4 years of age) eats free menu because the food, and the plating exceeded our expectation in a free food point of view. I cannot recall the last time we had free food, let alone free food with good portion and decent plating. I guess this point is well-known by its neighborhood because we also saw other tables with many toddlers as well. There is no free lunch, but there is free brunch ^^
I orderd a latte, and a Smoked Salmon Benedict. The latte was average but I was satisfied with the delicious benedict. Eggs were poached perfectly with warm, creamy, runny egg yorks and Hollandaise sauce. Yum!
My hubby ordered the Certified Angus Roast Beef Melt which he did not like because the meat was too tough. He ended up not able to finish the entire plate. Despite the fact that his dish did not come out as well as he wished, he still would give Grains Bistro another chance because he tasted my benedict which he loved too.
Overall, we were happy with our experience and will likely return to try another brunch or lunch / dinner.
