Every group of friends needs a go-to brunch place where they can load up on delightfully greasy diner food while sharing stories about last night’s party. For occasions such as this, you simply can’t do better than Fanny Chadwick’s. While it turns out flawless burgers and chicken sandwiches, even the staunchest creatures of habit will want to expand their culinary horizons when they see some of the creative offerings on the seasonal menu. An order of poutine (fries with chicken gravy and cheese curds) will get things going before mains like smoked beef brisket hash and house-made sausage hit the table. Once the feast is in place, feel free to sample your friend’s meal, provided you’re also willing to share a bit of your own. That way you’ll know what to order on your next visit here–not that anything could stop you from grabbing a fry off your buddy’s plate. A tip: show up early or be prepared to wait for a table. A recent feature on the Food Network’s You Gotta Eat Here has made the joint quite popular, but it’s worth a few minutes of standing around. To ease the pain of anticipation, they’ll give you coffee and treats while you wait and think about that heavenly stack of rich, crepe-like Finnish pancakes, eggs Benedict, and bacon in your future.
