This was the second time having breakfast at Verses Restaurant at Hotel Nelligan in the old city. I was served by Radwa, whose personality was genuine, friendly and customer service was very natural. The atmosphere is chill, very cool and you will feel at ease. There's nothing better in the world than strolling up Rue Saint Paul, viewing the old city and contemplating a great cup of coffee and quality food in the middle of an area rich with history. Puts everything into perspective and sets the tone for the day when you are able to eat and relax in a place like Verses.
Breakfast at many places can be, dare I say, repetitive or even carbon copies of everything else, generic and mundane. Not at Verses. Last visit, I had the Eggs Benedict, which filled me up yet left me wanting more, it was that good. This visit, I decided that I really wanted meat products just as much so I opted for the Classique, which on the surface sounds like the standard eggs, bacon, sausage, home fries and toast. What I received was clearly a creative and unique version of what we know from everywhere else. The sausage was custom made and flavourful. You will want to take your time enjoying it! The potato component was very crafty: grated potatoes and onions baked pie style until golden and sliced into wedges. The Classique comes with a choice of meats so I elected the bacon as the 2nd choice and it was smoky and delicious! And, of course, the eggs were cooked to order. Lastly, the finishing touch - beautiful melon, strawberry wedges and finely sliced ripe pineapple, all fresh and well-presented. The coffee here is probably the best cup you can have in the morning. Could drink a whole pot! Overall, Radwa saw to it that the food was okay and I was enjoying it.
The menu had several other tempting choices that called out to me and made a compelling case for consumption, like their omelette with lobster and asparagus. There are no bad choices here, friends.
