Brunch à la Galerie (CLOSED)

UPDATE (03/03/11): Yes, sadly, the gallery is now closed.

One word. Delightful. More words. The staff, the space, the food, my company – all delightful. An art gallery is an unusual setting for brunch, but in this case, it works. Minimalism rules here. The hushed quiet of a space intended for viewing art creates a tranquil, airy mood in the dining area. The big windows flood the space with natural light.

The food selection is paired down, but our meals were well prepared and attractively presented. My Frittata Mediterranean was even tastier than it looked. My friend’s Picasso’s Benny was surprisingly smoky and full flavoured.

The art remains the main focus of the space, be sure to spend some time enjoying the show before you leave.

1545 West 4th Avenue
Breakfast hours: Saturday & Sunday: 11:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
