Where do Canadians go for some of the best Canadian eats? Canteen! Because here for brunch or dinner, fresh dishes are what’s on the menu. Original and fresh, it’s a spectacular choice for your meal.
Make reservations for brunch or you might well find yourself out of luck. Brunch options like Dutch baby pancakes, crispy pork belly, and poached eggs mark the menu. Though the stuff of legends is the turkey leg, a giant braised the hunk of meat on a bone. Buttermilk chicken and waffles are magnificent, providing the ideal balance between sweet and savoury.
For dinner, starting with the albacore tuna poke or salt spring mussels are wise choices. However, don’t overlook the duck pastrami with corn bread. Arctic char, lamb t-bone, and beef short ribs are prime entrée choices. There’s not much on the menu for vegetarians, though, but the good news is that Canteen is happy to accommodate your dietary needs.
Sweet finishes like Hey Hey Cake with a sponge toffee crumble, meringue and curd topped with black sesame ice cream is a unique way to cap off your meal. The chocolate ganache is a little less exotic but no less delicious. And the coconut bavarois is a tropical taste that’s sweet yet refreshing.
Don’t forget to sip on some wine or craft beer during your meal. The selection here is vast and is constantly evolving to bring you more of your favourite labels. Cosy and casual, Canteen makes dining out a relaxed yet refined experience that will have you returning again and again.
While walk-in seats are always left available, they do tend to fill up fast. Canteen’s attentive staff will do everything they can to seat you, but if you’re planning on meeting friends or family here, the best thing you can do is reserve your table so you’re not left to watch the other diners indulge in their meals while you watch wistfully.
