We first spotted Eugene’s at Bronte on the way to the Three Blue Ducks a few years ago and made a mental note to come back for brunch someday…it only took us three years, but we made it eventually and we weren’t disappointed at all by what we found.
Their all-day menu features some interesting ingredients – like the Magic Mushrooms which blends an assortment of mushrooms (including shiitake and black wood ear) with parmesan, paprika fried eggs, slivers of jamon serrano, corn truffle and pickled jalapenos to create one big flavour punch.
Magic Mushrooms, $22
On the other end of the spectrum (but no less flavoursome), was the Breakfast Special which showcased salt cod (baccalau) in a creamy potato cake, paired with sauteed kale, poached eggs and a delicious smokey tomato chutney with toast. The dish was great for the first half, but became a bit too rich from all the baccalau after a while.
Breakfast Special, $20
The menu at Eugene’s offers up dishes that are a bit different from your typical brunch – great for adventurous diners looking for a subtle change on the weekend.
