I had been hearing so many good things about a super popular spot called The Wooden Spoon that I knew I had to check it out for myself. I finally had a chance to go and was instantly in love with it. It’s a beautiful, Instagram worthy hipster hang out that is making food they care about. Most things are made in house (breads, pasta, jams etc). As a place like this would, many ingredients are locally sourced.
You know your brunch date is about to be awesome when you all start out with Caesars. I liked that you had your choice of alcohol for your drink (Vodka, Tequila or Bourbon). Vodka for me. I especially loved all the amazing garnishes. It came with a pickled bean, a pepperoncini pepper, green olive, an onion ring and a slice of bacon. The drink itself was not overly salty which I appreciated as I find many Caesars have that tendency. The drink was basically perfect and you need to order a Caesar here.
The Wooden Spoon poutine was a mountain of so many delicious things. It was a bed of french fries & cheese curds with pulled pork, gravy, two eggs and salsa ranchero.
The Farmhouse Breakfast had two eggs, toast, sausages, bacon, potato fritters and chickpea salad. The sausage was unique as it was a chicken apple flavour and they got a good crisp on them. The potato fritters were deep fried which reminded me of tater tots but even better. I liked that they put a spin on their breakfast potatoes. The toast was light and had the perfect bread texture.
Here’s all of our dishes together. The Wooden Spoon is known for their eggs benedict too. The eggs with the benny were so perfectly poached and oozed out easily.
We also tried some of their banana bread. It had been pan fried to give the outside a crunchy texture. What an awesome idea. The maple butter spread onto it took it to next level deliciousness.
Staying true to their name, your bills are given to you in a wooden spoon. It’s such a cute touch.
The Wooden Spoon also serves lunch items and serves dinner on some nights. Make sure to check out their website before you go. The menu is so unique and I wanted to try everything. If you are a die hard brunch lover like me, you will love The Wooden Spoon in White Rock.
