Breakfast is a great meal for cold mornings or nights and Canadian Steak Fish & Sandwich Co. serves up unique options. Omelet choices include bacon and cheese; chicken, mushroom and swiss; bacon guacamole and jack; along with traditional favorites. Then there is one omelet fit for a lumberjack —the Paul Bunyan, which is filled with bacon, sausage, and onions then topped with gravy.
Griddle cakes are available by the stack and waffles come with your choice of fruit topping. French toast is prepared with homemade batter and topped with powered sugar. If you are looking for something a little more filling try one of the breakfast skillets, served with homemade chunky applesauce. All breakfasts are under $10.
If you are craving something lighter, the menu also features salads, quesadillas, and sandwiches and wraps. My selection for dinner was the tequila lime wrap. I am usually not a huge fan of wraps, but something about this one was calling to me, and I am glad I listened. It was delicious.
Everything tasted fresh and homemade and the tequila lime sauce was bright and flavorful. My favorite ingredient of the wrap, however, was the cheese. The Monterey Jack cheese in the wrap was not the standard, bland shredded cheese usually served at most restaurants, it resonated its distinct flavor with each bite and added a homemade touch. What can I say? It's the little things that make me happy.
The portions were large and the atmosphere is cabin casual. I don't know that I would have normally stopped in to dine here, but I am glad I did! I do not have a scale or rating system for eating establishments, but I do consider a meal a success if I know I have eaten a meal I know I will crave in the future. This is just the case with the lime tequila wrap...and that cheese.
