Lazy Sunday Brunch at The Carleton

After a looooooong morning meeting at a local coffee shop, I met a friend for brunch and a stroll. After much consideration, as well as encountering several closed restaurants in the process, we ended up on the corner of Prince and Argyle. Sidebar- WHY are so many restaurants who have Sunday Brunch on their menus CLOSED for Sunday brunch?!? Anyhow, after a quick browse over the Carleton's brunch menu, we settled in at a table by the window and cozied up to our twin Americanos.

As per usual we went the sharezies route and chose two dishes to halve. We went for the Smoked Salmon Benny and the Fruit and Yogurt cup with Granola. The Eggs Benny were fantastic with a light, lemony Hollandaise and supple smoked salmon. The Carleton also provided some of the best hash browns that I've had in a while. Unfortunately, the Fruit and Yogurt left a little to be desired, as the fruit selection, though fresh, was pretty minimal.

The Carleton's brunch menu has a great selection, and we drooled over the pancakes and french toast for a while before choosing some "lighter" options. I'll definitely try it again though as I can still taste those salty chunks of potato-y goodness.
