I went to the Urban Pear on Second Ave in the Glebe this past Sunday for brunch and was thoroughly impressed! From the moment we walked in it was a great experience. We were seated and offered water immediately, which is a lost art these days in a lot of restaurants. The excellent service remained throughout our stay and I actually complimented the server on enhancing our experience –I haven't told a server that in years! Now, on to the highlight of our brunch - the fresh, flavour filled, nicely presented food. The brunch menu offered a good selection of local fare for both meat eaters and vegetarians. My brunch companion and I decided to try a veg selection and a meat selection. She ordered the eggs benedict with shredded duck while I ordered the veggie omelet. Both dishes were fabulous - full of natural flavour which can only come from using fresh local ...ingredients. I also must applaud the Pear for not having ketchup, salt etc. on the tables which a lot of people use out of habit – both dishes were full of flavour and needed no extra attention. We finished our meal by sharing the churros from the dessert menu - I can't even begin to describe how delicious these warm, cinnamon-sugar dusted delights were! Our visit to the Urban Pear was a truly wonderful culinary experience! We left our brunch date feeling not only satisfied by the superb cuisine, but happy from the whole experience new owner Jeff Frost and his staff provided! Dining at the Urban Pear in the Glebe should definitely be on the weekend to do list! Brunch is served both Saturdays and Sundays from 11am - 230pm and well worth the trip!
