It took me a long time to finally get to try the Saturday brunch at Ma’tine. But it only took one bite to get me hooked.
Located downtown near the Village, Ma’tine is the newest restaurant of a dynamic trio of entrepreneurs who promise to rock your socks with everything they serve. Ma’tine offers funky and creative brunches every Saturday and Sunday morning, along with some delicious lunches on weekdays.
The menu changes constantly; even the regulars will find something new to try. For brunch , start with one of their fresh juices for some extra vitamin, and then accomplish the very difficult task of choosing what you want to eat. Expect some seriously delicious sunny-side up egg, on top of a trout tartar, or added to a scone sandwich featuring a crispy bacon slab and a perfect slaw to balance things off. More on the sweet side? Well, take a peek at their bread, cakes and pastries, the fresh bread they offer from their neighbours at Arhoma, and treat yourself to the basket of morning viennoiseries – can’t possibly go wrong.
I cannot talk about their lunch menu (yet!), but Ma’tine is an absolute must try for a fresh, creative and festive brunch. Do sit at the common table in the back of the restaurant. You’ll make new foodie friends!
In this welcoming atmosphere, Ma’tine is a great hideaway for these few last days of cold – and when the sun finally comes, we can eat on their huge terrace!
