Cafe Salade de Fruits

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.
