Seine River Cafe


D and J1 traveled to Minneapolis for the weekend for a Vikings game and the Bruce Springsteen concert and so our mandatory Sunday supper was going to have a couple of chairs unfilled. Instead, I decided to treat the rest of us to Sunday Brunch so that I could spend a quiet Sunday evening at home.  At this moment it is snowing (again) but I am in my jammies watching football and blogging and I am content with the way the day turned out.

It has been snowing since the middle of Friday night and 8 inches have accumulted.  Even though the main roads are clear, the side roads are a mess and cars are getting stuck all over te place.  We could have all stayed put today but we are a family who love to eat and be together so a little bit of shovelling wasn’t going to stop us.

The cafe was going to close early in honour of Remembrance Day but we were able to catch one of their last tables.  The staff (all female on this day) are an absolutely a delight.  Their smiling faces and kind gestures made us feel right at home.  I wasn’t planning on eating again that day so I had  lunch item- the homemade chicken fingers and Caesar salad.  They were as good as the chicken fingers that we used to enjoy at The Keg and that is high praise.

J2 also chose a lunch item-the Beef Dip and everyone else decided on Breakfast.

Strawberry Waffles and Eggs Benedict were also selected.

Daughter #2 enjoyed the latter but thinks that her Dad’s version is superior.  Of course, eggs bennie are all about the hollandaise and this version lacked either lemon juice or Dijon because it didn’t have the oomph that we enjoy.

There was hollandaise on the Frenchman’s choice as well but with all of the other flavourful ingredients in his Old Country Skillet, he was very pleased.  Along with potato, veggies and scrambled eggs were pieces of  ham along with links of sausage served alongside.  He needed to recoup his energy as he was the shoveller and driver on this snowy day.

Kath’s quote: “The first fall of snow is not just an event, it is a magical event.  You go to bed in one kind of a world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enhancement then where is it to be found?”-J.B. Priestley

Love-that is all.

“Seine River Cafe”

    Glad you wandered over to my side of the river Kath and explored one of my favourites – Seine River Cafe. They have an evening special that is great value for money and always extraordinary. I had pickerel fillets once on this deal, that I swear I almost moaned at every bitefull.

    Can I recommend another place that you and your family members might enjoy – Southdale Village Family Restaurant. Southdale Shopping Centre is on Fermor Ave. east of St. Anne’s and Southdale Village Family Restaurant is just left a bit of the former Zeller’s. The staff are uber pleasant and the food is great especially their soups of the day. Return customers crave their Ceasar Salad soup and Dill Pickle and Potato soup.

    Counting the days to Isla! ;)

    Thanks for the suggestion. We will definitely check it out. We are counting the days until Isla too but still have a long wait ahead (end of February). When do you go?
