Battle of the Ottawa brunch spots: part III – Fraser Café
Angela Christiano is an event consultant who has lived in Ottawa ever since coming for the weekend in 1994. Thanks for your contribution, Angela!
Remember the first cool – really cool – restaurant you went to? Both the food and décor had that common, comfortable, touch but in a way that made you feel classy (it is amazing what goat cheese can do to impress a burger).
Fraser Café in New Edinburgh is that place.
Here is a photo of our five-year old daughter’s order that speaks to the moxy of the restaurant: donuts and bacon. Seriously; a set of small homemade donuts accompanied by a deliciously sweet dipping sauce and warm, crispy bacon on the side. Salty and sweet – the perfect combination.
Kudos to the Fraser Café for finding a way to incorporate what should be a death row last meal into a delicious and varied brunch menu.
Go soon and often.
