This morning ( Mother's Day) we continued our efforts to sample each and every brunch spot in the hood by paying a visit to the new Frankly Eatery. The restaurant is small ( seats approx 16) but very cozy and the service was very friendly and quick.
There is a noticeable Indian-flavour flair to some of the dishes which adds a unique twist to the brunch offerings on the Leslieville strip.
I opted for the french toast and a side of bacon with coffee and was very happy with my selection. The french toast was in the form of small wedges of crusty bread neatly egg dipped and perfectly cooked which came with a light spreading of preserves on top. The maple syrup was provided in a small dish which proved to be perfect for dipping. A nice selection of fresh fruit finished off the presentation.
The bacon was a nice thick cut style cooked just the way I like it - crispy, but not over done.
My wife had the scramble with cheese and chives which also came with a nice side salad.
The coffee was also good and strong.
All in all, a very welcome addition to the brunch scene. We'll certainly be back soon,.... but this time I may be a bit more adventuresome and try one of the Indian inspired selections.
Ps,... thanks to the hostess for the free cookie!
