Commune Café

I was on my way from here to there this morning, running errands on foot, and Commune Café was in between my destinations – sort of. As I sat waiting for my meal watching the busy vehicle morning commuter traffic on both Seymour and Nelson Streets, it struck me how different the restaurant would feel if it were situated overlooking a park or the water. Those settings would serve to amplify its simplicity in design and clean aesthetic.

The idea behind the Commune Café is to bring people together, which is why, obviously, the seating area is monopolized by a communal table. I guess I wasn’t feeling communal today as I settled myself into one of the four booths instead. My Corned Beef Hash was enough to share, however. A substantial amount of potatoes with a generous sprinkling of corned beef, caramelized onions, and steamed kale, topped with two poached eggs and hollandaise.

Full up, I was ready to hit the pavement again and carry on to my next stop.
