The most popular breakfast order by far is the chicken, bacon and waffles, which includes fried chicken, bacon and a waffle, topped with strawberries, whipped cream and cream puffs. It can be ordered in the morning or evening. The same goes with the rest of the menu.
Delaurier’s favorite item is the Canadian eggs benedict, which comes with peameal bacon — the real Canadian bacon. Originally, pork loins were cured with salt and coated with ground peas, which would absorb moisture. Now, producers use cornmeal instead of peas. Maple Leaf had to make peameal bacon in house for a while, due to a lack of sup- pliers. But Delaurier eventually found a smokehouse in the Northeast that made it “almost identical” to the stuff he used to eat at home.
Food offerings stay the same, though there’s a special poutine each month.
“We always crazy pride ourselves on just making everything great,” Delaurier says. “Like crazy customer service all the time, and great food.”
