Brunch Club | Le Sain Bol

In order to beat the winter blues some friends and I decided to start a monthly brunch club. After what seems like the longest winter in years (and is still keeping us in good company) we desired a reason get out and break free from hibernation. It's safe to say that food and exploration are always sure motivators for me. Our first official stop was Le Sain Bol located in east end of the Plateau. It's exterior is easy to miss as it blends in alongside the neighbourhood homes unassumingly, however, this place should definitively not go unnoticed. Daylight fills the interior through the large front window creating a cozy and warm atmosphere. The menu is [positively] minimal, ranging from sweet to savory, and does not overwhelm you with the dilemma of "what do I order with all these options?" For brunch I generally appreciate a mix of tastes which is exactly what you get with the "la surprise" option- a little bit of everything on the menu and a truly genius offering. And I haven't even mentioned their homemade chai tea... a comforting blend of spices and almond milk. This little spot is a hidden gem in the city and one that I highly recommend. With fresh ingredients and well curated menu this brunch experience left us feeling wholly satisfied.
