Clementine Cafe - Winnipeg, M.B.
Entering via a narrow staircase down into Clementine Cafe, it feels like you are walking into a secret underground brunch speakeasy. To the left of the coffee bar is an exposed rock wall, illuminated by the glow of a neon sign reading "Eat this it'll help". Another left and the maroon walls are decorated with an ornate graphic wallpaper, lending an almost European feel to the atmosphere.
Clementine Cafe's dishes are a more elegant take on classic brunch foods, and each one is incredibly delicious, making it hard not to order more than one. Favourites range from the Turkish Eggs - two poached eggs on a bed of hummus and zhough paired with chilli butter sourdough bread, to the Braised Bacon Benedict with cider hollandaise sauce, and dill atop a black pepper biscuit. If you're craving sweet over savoury, however, the Brüssels Style Waffles with strawberry glazed berries, whipped dulce de leche, and pink peppercorn is probably more your speed.
