Food for Thought: Blake House

Blake House
Address: 449 Jarvis Street
Downtown/the Village
website, @twitter, Tel: (416) 975-1867

Nestled on the historic street of Jarvis, steps away from Yonge Street and the Village, shines one of the longest historic building first established 1891. Designed by Knox & Elliot, housed the second Premier of Ontario the Honourable Edward Blake. (For my American friends - it's equivalent to Governors)
With a Front Patio, and ample choices for Brunch I was glad to get back to my old stomping grounds.
The Basics
Coffee: Imperial
Blend: House

Machine: Saeco
Verdict: Coffee was decent, what you'd expect at a Bar/Restaurant. Freshly brewed was a bonus.

The Food: Eggs Benedict

*Great hollandaise sauce, not sure if it's from scratch but it's velvety smooth. The Hash browns is cooked to a golden brown even consistency. One of the top locations this year for great potato sides. Fresh Fruit is served as a side to meld the modestly salted peameal bacon. What you'd expect from "Canadian Bacon". Delicious.

Would I come back for more: Definitely. Especially for the nice patio, but beware of wasps....
