Parc cafe in glenwood is something we've been waiting for for a while... The food is fresh, simple and delicious! It's only been open a week and a half and I've been there 4 times already!
I've known Brett at his previous position as sous chef at 9th Avenue Bistro and come to expect his great meticulousness and attention to detail. Besides that, he is just one of the best down to earth, all round nice guys you'll ever meet in a kitchen! Opening Parc has been a life long dream realised for him, and you can well believe it, every dish has been thought out and it goes together really well.
Upon my first visit, I had a bacon, mushroom and spinach quiche and salad, with the most amazing tomatoe relish I have ever had the pleasure of tasting. The pastry was soft, buttery and crumbly all at the same time and the brown butter vinegarette was really interesting. My friend had an open sandwich with hummus and grilled aubergines with great zesty preserved lemon. Nice and healthy, with great prices too.
Another menu item that really made me stop and take note was the avocado and vanilla shake, sounds odd right? But it was like lightly whipped cookie dough- try it, it will knock your socks off!
On another visit, I had the eggs Benedict with lemon hollandaise and capers- it was lovely and fresh with a nice zing at the end, highly recommended! And G had the streaky bacon and cheddar cheese sarnie - this was really tasty! I especially liked the beer root and carrot slaw that came with that.
Glenwood has a great sense of community about it, and you can see it in the cafe. They use columbo coffee and use Adams bread from the glenwood bakery next door.
Really impressed with this little place and I can't wait to try everything on the menu! This menu will however be changing when the new season kicks in, so get in quick!
