Dejeuner AM Breakfast
1791-B Rue Principale Madawaska Maliseet First Nation, NB
This restaurant may resemble a traditional breakfast diner with wooden booths, brightly coloured coffee mugs, and images of bacon and eggs adorned on each wall, but don’t be fooled: the menu is extensive, and features everything from parfaits to crepes, from bagel breakfast sandwiches to breakfast poutine and much more. For someone who can never make up their mind when it comes to breakfast food, I was very impressed with the opportunity to order the “Sweet and Salty” which satisfied all my breakfast cravings: The sweet being half a toasted cinnamon raison bagel topped with fresh fruit and custard, and the salty being half a toasted regular bagel topped with eggs, bacon and cheese. Any breakfast enthusiast will appreciate the tasty and generous portions served here.
