Located amidst the array of restaurants populating the sidewalks of Rue Saint-Denis one can find Restaurant L’Évidence. In the morning, with its sunshine filled patio and its delectable looking dishes, it doesn’t take much to convince those passing by to take a seat. Their breakfast menu is filled with the usual, eggs Benedict, pancakes, and the famous Montreal bagel with salmon. However, what you don’t expect is the heaping mound of fruit beautifully carved and placed around what you thought would be a simple breakfast.
I ordered the eggs Benedict, which was good if you like your food at room temperature. However, it still managed to taste delicious, so just imagine how good it must be hot from the kitchen! The fruit that accompanied the eggs Benedict was all fresh, in season, and delicious. With that I had a café au lait and a freshly squeezed orange juice. Don’t ask for the café au lait in a bowl though, because you probably won’t get it. On the other hand, the freshly squeezed orange juice had a variety of fruits hanging off the rim, making up for my disappointment when my café au lait was “only in a mug”; drinks tend to taste so much better from a bowl.
