After reading all the 4-5 stars rating on Yelp, C and I decided to drop by Hank’s for a quick brunch as we didn’t want to go too far that day :). I forgot to take picture inside the restaurant, but the restaurant is spacious and bright, and I’m glad that all the tables weren’t all packed close together. The atmosphere at Hank’s was quite for most of the morning, however around lunch this place became quite noisy with the crowd. Just a quick note, the review is going to be quite short as the overall consensus was that the brunch was good, but it was nothing stellar.
C ordered the waffle and it was just a good old Belgian Waffle that you can find anywhere else in Toronto. Not too sweet, was super crisp on the outside with a nice softness on the inside.
The home fries were just chunk of potatoes and no sauce was given, and they were a bit too crispy and dry on the inside for my liking. I can’t exactly recall what was in the omelette of the day, but I think there were cheddar cheese and sausages folded inside the omelette. Surprisingly the omelette is pretty good, fluffy and not greasy, and loaded with generous amount of onions and cheese!
There is a good variety of dishes on the menu for everyone, and the price is reasonable for the portion and taste of all the dishes. With that said, I wouldn’t come out of my way to Hank’s for brunch since my list of brunch restaurants is growing rapidly (lol). If you are in St.Lawrence market area and is looking for a quick brunch, I say try this place!
