On The Hill

I don’t get out for lunch all that often.  IMG_1986On the weekends, that time is kept sacred for brunch-like foods, coffee and mimosas (or a properly made bloody).  I was lucky enough to have a chance to stop into this little cafe on a Thursday afternoon.  It’s on the corner of John Street and Mosher Street in Bolton Hill – right across the street from Mount Royal Elementary Middle School.  I am not sure how I haven’t stopped in here before.  And, now I am not sure how I am going to go back to brown paper bag lunches.

I headed in there craving a BLT and an unsweet tea.  They do have an amazing sounding one – which they call the Bolton – with apple wood smoked bacon and heirloom tomatoes.  It was one of those days that I kept reading and fell in love with everything.  IMG_1987I was so distracted by the menu, that I had a trouble deciding; everything sounding more and more tantalizing.  I ended up going with the Lafayette – on the idea that it was a little more unique.  Balsamic beets, goat cheese, avocado, lettuce and a pepper mayo on toasted wheat.  The rich aromatic beets went great with the fresh, creamy avocado.   The pepper mayo and goat cheese added a nice contrast, but certainly didn’t overwhelm.

Despite the size of this place, their menu is extensive – sammies, burgers, salads and breakfast items.  They have all sorts of coffees and teas.  I have heard that they have gratifying tacos.  IMG_1985And, you can see by the menu that the flavors change regularly.  I didn’t see it and totally forgot to look until after I ordered.

Don’t you worry… I will go again and update you.  Have you been?  What is your favorite sandwich?
