Parks, Markets And Poutine In Canada's Capital
Low ceilings, stone walls, dark wood and red leather booths add to the charm of this re-purposed, early 1900's apartment building, retro-fitted. While this place is a great pub at night, it's the weekend breakfast/brinch that sets it apart. Fresh fruit on every plate and a great variety of eggs Benedict. Try the Eggs Portuguese, on a potato pancake. Mmmm.
Head over to the Byward Market, where local farmers sell everything from real maple syrup to fresh flowers. It's also the heaviest concentration of restaurants in the city, so choices for lunch are endless. Try the Moulin de Provence for an afternoon snack. Even US President, Barack Obama couldn't resist their cookies.
