Poached Saskatoon

This weekend was spent in Saskatoon visiting family and eating well.  We drove up Friday evening, checked into the hotel and then grabbed a bite to eat at Afghan Kabob & Donair.  This restaurant has excellent food.  I was there back in May and it was just as good as I remembered.  

Breakfast on Saturday was just down the street from the hotel at a place called Poached.  This is a quaint little restaurant with really nice wait staff and a menu that makes it really hard to choose what to have - everything sounds pretty much perfect.

I had the breakfast plate which came with eggs, salad, potato croquettes, a choice of bagel or toast and a meat choice.  

There is no regular coffee on the menu, with refills like most breakfast joints.  The closest  you can get is an Americano (which is better anyway) for about $2.50 and refills are $2, or an array of other beverages (espresso, lattes, booze, etc.).  The food is very reasonably priced (around $12 or $13 for a meal).

Because our meal was so good, we visited Poached again today!  Today I tried the butternut crunch omelet with roasted butternut, bacon, and other delicious things inside.  We were impressed, again.  

They were so happy that we came back again for a second day in a row that they comped $6 off of our bill.  Now that is good service.  Perhaps Fortuna should take some service tips from Poached.  We will definitely be frequenting this breakfast gem next time (and probably every time) we are in Saskatoon.

Do you like to go out for breakfast?  What is your favourite breakfast joint?  What is your typical breakfast order?

Yum! That is awesome that the breakfast place gave you a discount like that! You'll be customers for life! :)

I love going out for breakfast, but I do not do it very often! I usually get an eggs dish of some sort, usually an omelette or a frittata.

On the rare times I order vegan breakfast (in more hippie-type cities than Regina, ha ha), I almost always opt for a variety plate, and that one looks really lovely and filling! And americanos are awesome. Hope Saskatoon has been fun!

I love to go out for breakfast or brunch. Huevos rancheros is probably my fave, but anything with eggs and cheese can make me happy.

I haven't tried Poached yet. I hear it's quite busy...Love going out for breakfast. Really enjoy Cora, but haven't tried the one in Saskatoon yet. I love eggs benedict, omelets, or french toast. Won't turn down plain ol' bacon and eggs, either. I pretty much just love breakfast. :)
