The Fine Diner
The Fine Diner is exactly that – it’s a new school (mighty fine) diner located in Old School Inglewood that specializes in modern comfort food. Their philosophy is to buy the best local ingredients & make their guests the very best “scratch” breakfasts and lunches available. What they don’t make it in house they rely on local artisans for. Their eggs are from Tschetter farm, their bacon is house cured and hand cut from Sunterra farms and their bread is from Sidewalk citizen bakery. They grow their own produce and harvest their own honey. My point is, everything here is fresh, so everything here is going to be delicious and full of flavour. Looking to spice up your day? Try their Jalapeño Mac & Cheese and maybe wash it down with a bubbly mimosa.
Red’s Diner: Ramsay Location
Turning farm fresh ingredients into modern comfort food, this awesome diner serves delicious breakfast all day. So good, they just had to open a second location in the Inglewood-Ramsay area. Red’s menu includes bacon and egg classics, their famous Eggs Benny, original omelettes and fluffy pancakes. Try their Montreal smoked meat hash and eggs. They also offer lighter options such as tofu scrambles, breakfast parfaits and red quinoa. A breakfast place is no good without some decent morning java. Red’s has kicked it up a notch and is one of the few non-pub brunch spots that have a liquor license, which means you can have your bacon and your bailey’s too.
THE NASH OFF CUT BAR
The Nash is located in Inglewood’s historic cornerstone building – The National Hotel – built in 1908. The décor is modern with a mix of the building’s bustling history. Brunch is a beautiful selection of mouthwatering dishes that will leave you satisfied and coming back for more.
