We recommend you order the smashed avocado toast, which is made with grated egg, pickled onion, jalapeño, micro coriander, and toasted sourdough. You also can’t go wrong with the truffle grilled cheese sandwich. This oh-so-good melty goodness is made with cheddar, brie, provolone, sunflower seed pesto, baby green salad, and comes with a side of kettle chips. We paired this delicious brunch with a Golden Eye premium dry apple Spy Cider.

With a mouthwatering array of options, the sandwiches at Bevi Birra will have you exclaiming “Wow” no matter your pick. We went for the Maria, boasting pea pesto, mortadella, fior di latte, sundried tomato spread, and arugula – a flavor explosion!

And as any brunch enthusiast knows, a side salad and a pint of beer are non-negotiable. We chose the Bevi Birra Halp Pilsner to complement our delightful focaccia sandwiches.

Infamous for its passionate affair with butter, this bakery has stolen the hearts of the whole neighbourhood—just peek at the line snaking out the door!

We indulged in a dozen and carefully curated a heavenly assortment from this artisanal bakery that’s become a regional favourite.

Greeted warmly by Michael, one of the owners, he eagerly guided us through the must-try delights. The Pistachio Twice Baked, Espresso Croissant, and a personal favourite, the Red Velvet, were among the standout choices!

The Red Velvet, a concoction of dark chocolate and cream cheese frosting rolled in pain Suisse, topped with cream cheese and dark chocolate shavings, was a delightful revelation.

Whether you’re satisfying a sweet tooth or in the mood for a delectable brunch, Bartholomew Bakery is the perfect stop. Pair your treats with a coffee or latte to fully immerse yourself in the magic.
