|Pumpkin Waffles with cranberry compote and caramelized pecans|
One of my favorite places to indulge in this marvelous meal is Fabergé in Outremont. They have really fun, futuristic decor, and you can always expect old cartoon classics, like the Jetsons, to be playing on their TVs. Oh, the memories! The setting, along with their cool clientele that range from young families to good-looking couples, makes for a fun and laidback environment.
We both ordered coffee drinks. I took a latte in a bowl because I was in major need of the caffeine. Alex took a cappuccino (in a cup). Their coffee is awesome.
I decided I would try their fall special: Pumpkin Waffles with cranberry compote and caramelized pecans. Can you blame me? Pumpkin waffles...uh, yummm! I also got a side order of sausage and potatoes. I love waffles, crepes, french toast... but I'm a savory girl at heart who needs her regular dose of sodium, if you know what I mean… The waffles were beautiful. They were light and airy. The pumpkin paired well with the tart compote whose bitterness was perfectly subdued by the caramelized pecans and drizzle of maple syrup. Go order this baby while you still can. It's truly fall done right.
Another really good dish they offer is their Breakfast Poutine. It's their signature dish which I actually snapped a shot of on a previous visit. It consists of home fries mixed with caramelized peppers and onions, cheese curds, and hollandaise sauce, topped with one egg, any style (I went for poached, obvi!). You can also add bacon, ham, or sausage for a little extra. This dish is definitely a go-to. It's pretty much eggs benedict on top of a poutine...it seriously doesn't get any better.
I loveee Fabergé. If you haven't been, please go. I promise you'll love it. The staff is super nice, the food is amazing. It's pretty much the best. So go, now. And bring me...pretty please!
