Mildred’s Temple Kitchen


One popular spot for brunch in Toronto is Mildred’s Temple Kitchen (Mildred’s for short), located in Liberty Village. Since it is one of the hot brunch places, you can bet that lining up is part of a routine. For my first visit, my friend Anila and I went on Saturday on a cold November, and there was still a line!

Just before 10 AM, there was a small line of ten people, awaiting for the doors to open. When it was time, one by one, each party was greeted to their table.

While I’ve never been to the original location of Mildred’s, formerly known as Mildred Pierce, I was well aware of its small restaurant space. However, this new location gives them much more space. It’s open, high-ceiling concept gives a welcoming but also high-end, modern outlook.

It was tough deciding what to order. I didn’t know if I wanted something savoury or sweet. I ended up choosing what Mildred’s is most likely famous for.

Mrs. Biederhof’s Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes

I decided to go with the sweet option with the famous fluffy pancakes. For $16.50, the buttermilk pancakes are “served with a wild blueberry compote, Lanark County organic maple syrup & whipped cream”.

Looks can be deceiving, and with these pancakes, that is just the case. It might not look like a huge stack of pancakes but trust me, it’s bigger than it looks. I usually have a huge appetite but I could not finish this and Anila had to eat my leftovers.

The pancakes are indeed fluffy but they are also quite thick. Compared to the Japanese pancakes at Fuwa Fuwa, these bear weight. That’s why I got full. The blueberry compote was really good. It wasn’t too sweet or too tarte. It was the nice touch to the buttermilk pancakes. They also didn’t skimp on the amount of blueberry compote. It was a generous amount. The maple syrup was also delicious. I did run out of maple syrup and our waiter noticed and asked if I wanted some more. (I’m one of those that like to drench their pancakes in syrup!)

Mildred’s House Made Lemonades

I also ordered one of the lemonade drinks to go with my pancakes. For $4.50, you can have the regular or blueberry house made lemonade. To go with the theme, I chose the blueberry one.

You would think that having blueberry pancakes, ordering a blueberry lemonade drink would make me sick of blueberries. Well, the lemonade was actually quite refreshing and it didn’t have the same taste palette. I do highly recommend ordering this drink, especially if you want to add some colour to your brunch.

I had a nice time at Mildred’s Temple Kitchen and would like to go back and try one of their more savoury dishes for brunch or drop in for their dinner menu.

I don't like olives—leaf me alone! 🥬
⠀
Salads don't really fill up my stomach, so I rarely order them as my main entrée. However, when I am looking for something light, I'll order one.
⠀
When I took @xstephanieeee and @alavia to @3brasseursca before one of the Duke Canada basketball games, I got this pasta salad. I forgot the name of this dish but it's on the lunch menu. I'm not a fan of olives and I knew they'd be in this salad, but I figured it'd be just a few olives. Boy, was I wrong! This was like an olive dump!
⠀
If you don't like olives, I'd highly avoid this particular pasta salad.

Call me irrational for posting a non-pi(e) photo on Pi Day.

Throwback to last July at the Burlington Food Truck festival. Since they were featured on 'You Gotta Eat Here!', I tried the Pulled Pork Beanasaurus from Sul Irmaos Smokehouse.
⠀
As you can tell, it's a sandwich with mess written all over it. It was stacked with pulled pork, chili, coleslaw, and fried mac and cheese bites. Taste-wise, it was okay. The fried mac and cheese bites placed on top didn't elevate the sandwich as I hoped it would. It didn't provide the cheesiness I wanted it to.
