there's no other way to go
The best thing about not working on a Friday? Brunch. I still have so many places to try and have barely made any headway. Sigh. I love Brunch, there's really no other way to go.
This past Friday the sister and I were out and about at 630 am. By the time we finished our errands we were hangry. Acme Cafe was the closest so we went. It's a cute, casual diner on Hastings. Service is friendly and the kitchen is open. They have a nice selection of baked goods, but the pies will be what catch and hold your attention - I guarantee. It seems I should have saved room for pie. The lemon meringue pie was calling to me, but my belly refused to make room because we had this:
The sister's eggs benny. It just didn't have the same texture or flavours. Made us miss Cafe Zen.
I had the baked eggs with bacon. It was delicious, but I didn't care for their potatoes. A little too oily, and bland.
Acme's mac and cheese, however, simply delicious. Really good. We shared a side order when we should have had a full order...each. Creamy with a nice sharp bite with breadcrumbs for added texture. So very good. Sir, can I have some mo.
