Gazette pick: Brunch

Rebecca Spence, Arts Editor 


Mounds of fruit and pancakes cannot compare to the fresh and innovative fare of jane’s on the common (2394 Robie St.).

jane’s is a local, neighbourhood restaurant that makes its meals from scratch, sourcing many ingredients from local suppliers. Their prices are a bit more than you would pay at a greasy spoon on Quinpool Road, but certainly competitive. Furthermore, their menu is way more creative and original than most other breakfast menus in the city. For instance, the $12 Maritime Breakfast includes two eggs any style, fresh line-caught haddock fillet, breaded and topped with an apple and cranberry chutney, sour dough toast, roasted potatoes and organic greens. Their eggs Benedict are served on a sweet potato biscuit with house-made hollandaise. The menu includes vegan options such as the  Caribbean French Toast, made with coconut milk and banana. They also serve some gluten-free options

This is definitely a special restaurant. A trip to Jane’s On The Common should be saved for those who can appreciate a good meal. Hung-over hooligans craving a heap of bacon and eggs should set their sights on Quinpool Road.
