Description: We are a twist on a European Brasserie, inspired by Chef's rustic, simple and down-to-earth approach to food and cooking. We are known for our duck, hanger steak, poutines and other hearty, comfort food housemade with fresh & local ingredients. Indulgence is always on the menu here, but so are lighter seasonal favourites, like our blackened salmon salad, whole roasted trout, or veggie burger. Our Saturday & Sunday brunch is always hopping, and if chef is in the kitchen he is usually cooking up outrageous features like 32oz steak and 8 eggs. Expect an eclectic and cozy décor, with everything from your grandmas old paintings to stuffed boar trophies.

“Reliable and good”
Reviewed November 19, 2011

We have been to this restaurant a couple of times and have found it to be really good both times.
We were there just a couple of days ago - we didn't feel like cooking and we'd both had really long days, so we went to Brasserie and were reminded why we like it.
The menu has a variety of dishes. They feature cooking dishes with duck fat and feature pommes frites and poutines of all sorts.
We have had their sandwiches, which cost around $15 - 18. We've had the lamb burger, the cod sandwich and the wiener schnitzel sandwich. All are great. And for the price, they can't be beat. Their mains look good, but have seemed to be too much for us when we've been there.
For a sandwich, a glass of wine and a beer, the price is great.
This is a good reliable place to go - we would both highly recommend it.
