I’ve been to the King Street location several times and I am normally on the patio enjoying a beer from their huge selection.  This time around, I was enjoying a lazy weekend catching up with friends over brunch. The Shops on Don Mills location is very spacious and great for large groups.

Although the lunch menu was also available, we all opted for brunch (brunch menu here). There were recommended beer pairings on the menu.  I wasn’t feeling the beer this time and went for a coffee instead.

I ordered the Bavarian benedict which came with 2 poached eggs, roasted porchetta, cast-iron Yukon potatoes rosti and a tomato and Weissbier hollandaise. My husband ordered the Belgium breakfast which came with 2 sunny side up eggs, maple walnut sausage, smoked bacon, Stout baked beans cassoulet, English Ale muffin, Markt frites and preserved fruit compote. Both dishes were $13 which was a great deal.

I thoroughly enjoyed my dish; the poached egg was done well and the roasted porchetta was tender. My husband’s dish was tasty except the sausages could have done with more seasoning. If I could make one improvement with many of their brunch dishes, it would be to add more fruit. We had a friendly server who was attentive, as our coffees were refilled often and she checked in frequently.

Overall:

I would recommend the Bier Markt for brunch. The portions may not look massive, but the dishes are filling, satisying and a great value.
