1564 Queen Street West (between Landsdowne and Roscavelles)
Brunch for two with all taxes, tip and coffee: $50
"Instead, it's a fun, quirky brunch spot with some seriously awesome food and just enough cuteness to not feel stuffy."
As a big fan of eggs Benedict, I'm always up for new variations of the dish and Cowbell's version with smoked trout ($12) was especially nice. House-smoked trout was light and sweet – neither too fishy or overwhelmingly smoky - atop homemade English muffins. There was apparently some debate as to whether this should come with a side salad of local greens (it was the first brunch service and the kitchen was still working out some details), so I ordered a side of nicely cooked home fries as well ($2).
