Joe Fortes: Weekend Brunch

Diana Chan March 17, 2014 Brunch, Canadian, Downtown, Kid Friendly, Three Beakers


Joe Fortes was the place where TaiwaneseGirl highly recommended we come here for eggs benny. There are open 11am till 11pm daily. We are continuing our hunt for delicious eggs benny in town. We came here a bit past 11am and this place was beginning to get busy.


By 12:30pm, this place was packed and there were waits. The restaurant is quite large, so it seats a lot of people.


We were given complimentary scones as we waited for our order. It was a nice touch. You get one scone per person.


Orange Juice ($6.95) is what we needed to start off the brunch.


Crispy Fried Local Oysters ($14.95) is served with  Joe’s classic tartar sauce. There were only 4 pieces, so it was definitely very expensive. We thought there would be more. Nonetheless, it did taste good. The oysters used were Ocean Wise.


Eggs Benedict ($13.95) comes with  Canadian bacon, poached eggs, and hollandaise. It also comes with hashbrowns, house-made english muffins, fruit and ketchup. We got the eggs to be soft poached so the yolk oozed out.


Smoked Salmon Benedict ($14.95) has poached eggs, chive hollandaise. It was good, the smoked salmon pieces were cut thick, but it could of had more smokey flavour.


I got the soft poached eggs and man, was it ooey gooey and oh so delicious.


Joe’s Signature Benedict ($15.95) has wild mushrooms, crisp proscuitto, and truffle sage hollandaise. Same items come on the plate as the other bennies.

Overall, the eggs bennies was good. There’s a lot of food on the plate, so you will definitely be full after eating. Certain items on the menu can be quite pricey like the seafood options.
