I had heard so much about Emma’s Country Kitchen but never made it out there because I don’t usually have the patience for brunch, too many lines, and people with nowhere to stand but a couple of weeks ago we were up early on a rainy Saturday so I thought we’d try our luck. The wait was about 40 minutes, so we went and grabbed a coffee across the street, stopped in at the butcher and they called us in about the time they have estimated.
The first thing I noticed was the donuts, they have about 4 different flavours to choose from and our hostess told us that they sell out, they make them fresh everyday and when they’re gone, they’re gone. So, of course we had to start with a donut appetizer.
We got the one with toffee on top, I love sponge candy and this donut was so good. We shared one but I could have very easily just had multiple donuts for breakfast, it was so good.
For our main, we had just the classic breakfast. It was tasty but similar to what you’d have at any brunch place. I did see a lot of people getting their pancakes, they looked good but not what I was looking for.
I don’t know that I would wait in line for breakfast again but I would definitely pop in to grab donuts, it looked like you could pick them up at the counter. They were definitely worth it, particularly as the weather gets nicer and I spend more time walking in that neighbourhood.
