Brunch @ Mildred's Temple Kitchen

Admittedly, I am a little obsessed with brunch, and I really don't think I eat it enough! So after hearing many great things about brunch at Mildred's Temple Kitchen's, I finally tried it for myself!
I've read rave reviews about Mildred's famous scones, so naturally we ordered some for the table to share. For $12, you get to pick between currant scones and buttermilk biscuits (6 in total), so because I've heard so much about the scones, we only had one biscuit for our platter. Unfortunately, I have to say I was quite disappointed with these scones. I wished they had been served warmer, and the accompanying preserve wasn't spectacular either. Maybe I came on an off day? On the contrary, I quite enjoyed the buttermilk biscuits and wished we ordered more of that instead.
A couple of friends ordered Veda’s Choice ($14.5)- Mildred’s classic poached eggs on a flakey croissant with your choice of smoked salmon or rosemary bacon, topped with Béarnaise sauce and served with mixed green. I was tempted to order this for myself and from the bite I had, I really liked it!
Here is Veda's Choice with bacon. I didn't get to try this one, but it looked delectable as well.
Next up, Huevos Monty ($14.5) was a surprise hit for me: Mildred’s classic black bean refritos and sharp cheddar cheese, baked in flour tortillas and topped with eggs sunny, fresh salsa and avocado crème fraîche. Normally, I'm not a huge fan of black beans, but the flavour combination here was really delicious! I would definitely consider ordering this for myself next time I come. 
But from the very beginning, I had very little doubt that I was going for Mrs. Biederhof’s Infamous Light & Fluffy Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes ($13.5) served with Lanark County maple syrup and whipped cream. Light and fluffy are indeed the perfect words to describe these beauties, and they would most certainly rank amongst the best pancakes I've ever had! Thinking about it is making me hungry right now! On a side note, it was also extremely filling (I think I fell into a coma after I finished one), so sharing is highly recommended! Nevertheless, they were absolutely amazing and I had no regrets!
If you're looking for something a little heartier, then perhaps consider the Manhandler ($19)- sliced striploin steak on arugula and garlic toasted sourdough topped with two eggs sunnyside up, and served with horseradish jus. This was my boyfriend's order, so I got to eat all of his side salad, which was actually really yummy- loved the bright acidity of the tangy dressing! All in all, I thought everything at brunch was pretty fabulous, with the exception of the scones. The verdict? Pancakes are a definite must-order, and I can't wait to come back for more!
