This morning I had brunch with friends at nearby Scandinavian restaurant Karelia Kitchen. I ordered the Potato Pancake $14 which had hot smoked trout, beet and horseradish cured gravlax, and a poached duck egg. There was also a strawberry and a yellow berry. Everything on the plate was super fresh and delicious.
I also added a side of smoked strip and loin bacon. The portion was a lot bigger than I expected! The bacon was brunchy and had just the right amount of salt.
We all drank coffee with our meal. Milk and sugar came in shot glasses which I thought was funny.
I couldn’t resist the desserts in the display so I chose the oreo cheesecake topped with berries which I believe were freeze dried and added a nice crunch.
I’m excited to discover a new spot in my neighbourhood to indulge in weekend brunch!

Nice! I’ve been meaning to try Karelia.
It’s a nice vibrant spot! And I didn’t have to wait 30 min to get a seat
You are the only person I know who has dessert with brunch! Love it!
