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.

Want a piece of this? It's really cheesy 🍰
⠀
In 2015, I went to Sugar Marmalade went it first opened in Mississauga. I wasn't impressed with it. Four years later, my opinion hasn't changed at my second visit. Check out my quick review in my IG Stories.

It's the long weekend 🇨🇦—Let's par-tea! 🎉 ⠀
Earlier this week I finally got to try @thealley.ca in Toronto. Since it was my first visit, I decided to order the Deerioca. This drink is made with brown sugar instead of white. Make sure you mix it (Swipe ⏩) before drinking it, otherwise the brown sugar will only settle at the bottom. You also have the option of choosing regular milk or soy milk.
⠀
It wasn't bad but the brown sugar didn't give me the sweetness I'm used to. It did taste familiar to a non-bubble tea drink. But I wouldn't mind going back to try a different drink to compare to other bubble tea places.

If you have any recommendations, leave it in the comments :)

Yolks on you if you don't order the Spaghetti Carbonara from @scaddabush!
⠀
My go-to order is usually the Roasted Fennel & Sausage Fettuccine but yesterday I decided to try something different. I went for the Spaghetti Carbonara and it was delish! 😋
⠀
It was creamy and full of flavour. I also don't like bacon (Don't @ me!) but thus was bearable for me. It was a bit too oily near the bottom of the dish, so make sure you mix it well!
⠀
And if you're sharing this dish, go for the social size option—it's cheaper when splitting the bill! 😉
