Hammersmith's 1st anniversary - free cupcake!

If anyone has been considering trying out this great little brunch place that I love (obviously), this is a good weekend for it. It's their 1-year anniversary and they are giving each guest a free cupcake to say "thank you". It should be a pretty quiet weekend there, between the long weekend and Pride going on, so a good opportunity to avoid the madness of downtown. They are at Gerrard and Logan and are open all weekend, including Monday.

      Chocolate with a chocolate/vanilla swirl buttercream. And yes, she makes a European buttercream!

        Darn.. should have read this earlier! Sounds like a good deal!

          They are open tomorrow from 10 - 2 (or maybe 3?). I'm pretty sure the cupcake offer is good tomorrow, too.

    2. Dang! Wish I'd gotten my home Internet access back sooner! :) I'll have to check this place out anyway.

      1. We went before noon on Monday. By the time our meals were done, all the cupcakes were gone, though I had seen them being handed out to patrons just before. It was a bit of a disappointment. That and the fact that there were a number of items on the (already small) menu that were no longer available. Plus my omelette was overcooked (read like a dry sponge) and really lacking in flavour, and the bacon hash was disappointing - a pile of pre-baked, overcooked (as in dark brown) potato cubes that were lukewarm and lacking any crispness, with a couple of half-slices of bland bacon and some caramelized onions that were good but not capable of saving the dish. The side veggies were well-executed (from salads to asparagus), probably the highlight. I really wanted to leave feeling like I wanted to go back, but it just didn't happen, alas.
