My last day in Canada was marked by one of the best brunches I’ve ever had.
CAFE SALADE DE FRUITS
Seeing as half of Vancouver was French, I wanted to sample some French pastries or something. After a quick Google search of “french + brunch + vancouver” I ended up picking this place based on some Google reviews.
It is located inside the French Cultural Center in Vancouver, B.C. and is nothing more than a few mix-and-match tables and chairs that overflow into the lobby of the cultural center. The waiters speak fluent French and approach the table asking, “Parle vous francias?”
I don’t speak French, but I will eat the food. YUM!!!
We chose to share Moules et Frites (Mussels & Fries), Smoked Salmon sandwich in a French Baguette with a side salade, and Lamb shank stew cooked for 13 hours served with rice. Delish!!!
Their mussels were large, succulent and fresh.
The meat was soft & flavorful & literally just fell off the bone.
While this was my least favorite of all the dishes that we had, it was still utterly delicious. I love French baguettes and this one was fresh, with the crust just soft enough and crunchy enough. The salad was also delicious with their home made dressing.
Overall, A+. I dare you not to drool and wish you were somehow in B.C.
