Almost a year ago, I joined American Express. In ways, it was like starting at a new school with a new building, new things to learn, and new people.
Some of those new people became friends, and it’s just nice to have coworkers that you actually want to spend time with outside of work.
Recently, Cy and I joined Lucy, Sandy, Crysthian (Sandy’s husband), Anooja and Sagar for some morning brunch – my favourite meal of the day! We picked Starving Artist on St. Clair from a friend’s reco of the waffles.
And, we ordered waffles and more.
This is what you have to order here: potato waffles. They taste like crispy mashed potatoes in waffle format. Mine were ordered with sour cream, cheese, chives and bacon (Fully Loaded – $11). The salad and fruit were so so.No surprise here, we all ordered some kind of waffle. And, the verdict was that they were all pretty good – everything but the slow service. From top left (clockwise): The Hitchhiker ($11) with that healthy side of bacon; BLT Sandwich ($9) without the bacon; Tex Mex Chicken Sandwich with really sweet beans ($9); and Breakfast Benny ($11.50) with that creamy hollandaise on poached egg and potato waffle – what a combo!Food and friends, that’s a better combo.
