Nice washroom art!

I finally got to Jak's Kitchen thanks to Rachelle Eats Food.

The real standouts were the toasted molasses-oat bread, homemade jam and the salad. The bread was addicting with that lovely hint of cinnamon. (They will sell a loaf for $5.) It set so well with the homemade strawberry jam. The salads were really fresh and the dressing just perfect for brunch - not too showy, light, but flavourful. There was also a big rave on the quiche special.

Attentive service and hopping kitchen. They were so busy with the post race crowd. We ate close to 2:00 pm. Our only wish was for less brown on the omelettes and in the rush, the dishes had somehow cooled a bit too much.

Looking forward to returning!

  1. I love that they serve molasses-oat bread - that's one of our staple bread recipes at home!

    Maybe I should start selling mine too. : )

    1. Do you still have this recipe the site is now offline???

    2. Sorry to hear that the Apron Strings blog is no longer active. Lana stopped writing on it a few years ago. Too bad the content is no longer up. It was a great blog.

  2. If it tastes as good, you will make a fortune! They respectfully gave me one slice with my omelette but I could have easily had more.

  3. mmm congrats Amanada!! , and mmmm Molasses bread...Molasses are a rarity in Hungary....

  4. Yes, she ran a great race didn't she. It was our pleasure to treat the hungry runner. You need to start a list of things for her to bring to you in the summer - like molasses!

  5. I wish now that I had gotten molasses bread with my quiche. Oh well, I guess I'll have to go back to try it :) Thanks Jess! It was a very good day all around.

  6. nice photos! the food looks delicious. mouthwatering!
