Brunch @ Fionn MacCool's
36 Kingston Road East
When I lived in Cambridge, I would drive by in Kitchener and wondered what it was. I assumed it was just a pub, but the outside looked so classy with rich and clean lines, I wasn't really sure what to expect.
I've long since moved back to Durham, so I set my eyes on the Ajax location. We headed over for lunch on a Saturday. The sun was shining and the patio was calling us!
After a look at the menus, we were delighted to see that they had brunch until 3pm! That sealed the deal. My man ordered Our Original Benny and I chose Pie. Even though we hadn't eaten breakfast yet, we couldn't resist ordering a pint. The been menu was impressive and diverse. I tried Shock Top and he tried Red Stripe. I didn't get a picture of my man's dish, because by the time I snapped a pic of mine, he was well into his.
He LOVED the eggs benedict. He used all of his to eat ALL of the sauce. His plate was clean in record time....and then he started eating MY . GRR! My Pie was delicious. The pastry was flaky and tasty. The scrambled egg inside was full of fresh veggies an Guinness bratwurst...holy crap. I'd like to try those brats alone, because they were DAMN good.
The service was great and did not hesitate to offer suggestions when we were unsure. I really liked this place. It had a great vibe. I'd like to try more of their food and beer selection!
It's nice to see that pub food doesn't only consist of nachos and wings!
