As I’m sitting at my desk drafting this post, I’ve realized in a blink of an eye, come September is my 5 years working downtown Toronto. Time seriously flies. One of the restaurants that I frequent after work in the downtown core is REDS Wine Tavern inside First Canadian Place (due to its convenient location). While I can totally rave about their lobster guacamole dip all day, I was totally caught off guard to see a brunch menu & full on bakery section happening inside REDS at Square One Shopping Mall. The best thing about this REDS inside Square One Shopping mall is that they have a mini “walk through” window for shoppers looking to pick up something on the go!
Bakery Basket ($7.00 small / $10.00 large)
- minature quiche, scones, blueberry citrus glazed muffins
- we opted for the small bakery basket
E and I were blown away by their bakery basket, pancakes and avocado toast. Those scones and muffins were so good, we actually came back on a separate occasion just to purchase the basket to take home! The pancakes were just as good as their other baked goods. Their pancakes were done to perfection – soft & fluffy with a slightly crispy texture around the edges, honestly some really good pancakes I’ve had in a while.
Three Stack Pancake ($13.00)
- REDS traditional buttermilk recipe, chantilly cream, berries, maple syrup
Avocado Toast ($8.50)
- soft boiled egg, feta, chia seeds, freshly baked sourdough
Eggs Benedict ($14.00)
- Canadian peameal bacon, hollandaise, house baked English muffin, fried potatoes
