9 Church Street
Spent a lovely chilly Saturday going around downtown satisfying my food cravings with the family, our first stop was at Hank's for brunch. I've been dying to come to Hank's after reading pretty good reviews for their brunch menu.
Before heading over to Hank's we stopped by St. Lawrence Market to grab some coffee to keep us warm for our trek. I love the atmosphere at Hank's, it was warm and modern at the same time. Dark brown worn out wooden floors, bright white walls, ceilings and some stools and the pops of colour from the art created by local artists.
We got seated right away but the waitress was really rude, she instantly grabbed my cousin and boyfriend's coffees out of their hands and said no outside drinks (I used to work at a restaurant so I know the rules but she didn't even give them the option of finishing it outside). I mean if the food wasn't as good as it was I would have been so pissed and she would have ruined Hank's for me.
Jessica and I got the Pacific Eggs, $13, Two poached eggs, English muffin, Wild smoked salmon, sautéed spinach, hollandaise & home fries. We both absolutely loved our dish, the eggs were perfectly cooked, the smoked salmon was delicious and not fishy at all. Probably the best smoked salmon eggs benedict I've ever had. Oh and the home fries were super crispy which I loved!
Satya got the Breakfast Poutine, $9, the poutine contained sausage, a poached egg, cheddar cheese, tomato, fries and hollandaise sauce. Needless to say Satya loved it and so did everyone else who tried his poutine. Only compliant was there wasn't enough sausages.
If you know Chris you know he loves cinnamon buns and he loves french toast so what better option then the Cinnamon Bun French Toast, $10, it was served with Quebec maple syrup and fruit salad. I had a bite and it was more like raisin bread french toast than cinnamon bun.
My mom got Hank’s Benny for $13, two poached eggs with fresh tomato salsa, avocado, toasted english muffin & hollandaise sauce served with crispy home fries
My sister just got the Eggs Any Style for $8 and you got a choice between bacon, sausage or peameal bacon.
Even though our waitress was incredibly rude the food made up for it, Hank's will definitely be one of my go to places for brunch when I'm downtown.
Oh, and the prices are really reasonable for the portions and taste!
