Quiche Lorraine

Many years ago there was a quaint litte restaurant in the east end that served a fabulous quiche. It had a side of sprouts and came with a glass of homemade lemonade. Seated no more than 30 or so but the combination of flavours as well as the intimate and cozy ambiance makes me wish they still existed. I don't remember the name of the place nor the exact address. If anything, could someone provide a decent substitute? thanks.

  1. Can't really suggest a true substitute but the cafe in the basement of Ogilvy's does a nice Quiche Lorraine with a huge choice of sides. It is, however, no longer cozy since they expanded that space several year ago...

    Alexandre's on Peel does a good "made on the premises" Quiche Lorraine -- nice with lentil soup on a winter day with a hardy red wine..

    1. I like the quiche lorraine at La Croissanterie Figaro (Hutchison / corner Fairmount) which comes with a green salad with shredded carrots and creamy dressing. They also make good burgers and have interesting and well-prepared daily specials like game or fish with seasonal vegetables. Good coffee and croissants and other baked goods. It's a lovely café bistro, the tables are marble on antique cast iron.

      1. Not really a restaurent, but I like the Quiche (and the duck and venison Touritiere) from the saussage store at Marche Atwater. They are fully cooked, all you need to do is heat and serve.

        1. If you like butter, go for the Quiche at Kouign-Amann on Mont-Royal & Drolet.
