Tuna salad sandwich and a mocha latte
UPDATE: THIS RESTAURANT IS NOW CLOSED
So, I'm kind of obsessed with this place.
I went to The Falls one day for lunch, and I loved it so much I went back the next week. This NEVER happens to me. When I told my husband, he was shocked - he knows I don't usually do repeats that soon! But that's how much I like this place. The food is good, yes, but I also just love the atmosphere. It is a cafe in the heart of Mt. Washington, and it's a perfect place for lounging on couches, chatting with friends over lunch/brunch/breakfast and coming for dinner and drinks!
I've only been there for lunch, but you can BET that I will be going back soon for dinner.
The first time I went for lunch, I unfortunately had a BBQ to go to that evening, so I wanted something small - I chose the $6 tuna salad sandwich which came with pickles and chips. $6! The tuna salad itself was nothing memorable, but good enough. The chips were kettle cooked and I really loved them. My friend, however, very smartly chose The Magical Pig ($9) sandwich - Sliced balsamic and garlic Pork on baguette with caramelized onion and creamy goat cheeese, served with fries. OMG, I took one bite of it and I was SO JEALOUS, it was SO GOOD. I also ordered a mocha latte - look at how pretty it is! It was creamy and very chocolatey and a TERRIBLE idea for the hot day that it was. But I bet it would be wonderful to sit there and sip during the winter. I almost wished that they had one of those large cafe style mugs that barely fit in your hands - I think that would suit this place well.

Grilled Portobello Flatbread
My mum chose the Grilled Portobello Mushroom Flatbread ($9) - with Feta cheese, grilled red onion and sauteed vegetables. This is such a good option for my vegetarian friends! The portobello was cooked perfectly, and I loved the tang of the feta cheese with the grilled vegetables. My mum really enjoyed this, and I enjoyed taking bites!
There's just something so comforting about this place, and I bet at night it's super fun as well. I can't wait to go back. I think next time I'm going to go back for dinner and get the Bison Burger with Fries ($9). LOVE those prices!!!!
Oh, p.s. they also carry my Wine of The Moment - Ponga Sauvignon Blanc. For a sauvignon blanc, it's surprisingly fruity and perfect for a hot day.
