It's hard to believe that Edgar has been open for over a year ago now. It seems like just yesterday that Marysol was getting her footing as a new restaurant owner. Now, Edgar is known for its quality, made-from-scratch foods and quaint atmosphere. With only 11 seats, we were lucky to find a place when we arrived for brunch shortly after opening (not ones to be deterred by the time change).
I love everything about Edgar, the food, the service, the atmosphere...even getting to practice my ordering skills in French (note: everyone is bilingual, but thankfully didn't automatically switch to English just because I have an English accent).
I'm looking forward to the opening of Odile, Edgar's little sister, which will have more seating.
I ordered the dutch baby, a puffed up pancake filled with slow-cooked pork belly, five-year-old cheddar, apple puree and maple syrup. I ate it slowly to savour the taste and to make sure I got a bit of every flavour in one bite.
"Ron" had the cabin à sucre-inspired meal, which included baked beans with maple syrup, poached eggs, potato gratin, bacon and what I think was a yorkshire pudding.
Of course, who can resist the counter full of baked goods? I went with the lemon beignet, which is a muffin rolled in sugar and cinnamon and filled with lemon custard.
Ron had a plum tart, which he loved.
