Sunday Brunch at The Buzz Restaurant, Ottawa


Huevos Rancheros

I recently had a great Sunday brunch at The Buzz Restaurant with Beebs. The food was surprisingly amazing, and I can honestly say that this place has one of the best brunches in town.

The Buzz, Ottawa

This is a funky little bistro with a regular local crowd. The brick walls are covered with artwork by artists from the Basement Artists, an artist run group that brings local emerging and established artists together through regular events.

I ordered a cappuccino and the Huevos Rancheros.

The huevos reminded me of my short stint in San Diego and brought back good memories. It was a flour tortilla stuffed with cheddar cheese and potatoes. They are normally topped with two fried eggs, but I asked for my eggs to be poached instead. The tortilla was also topped with sour cream and spicy salsa, and on the side were two juicy breakfast sausages and fresh fruit.

Their cappuccino tasted excellent, and I loved the huge chunks of potatoes in my huevos. The salsa is quite spicy, so beware.

Beebs ordered the Eggs Florentine: two poached eggs and sautéed spinach on a toasted English muffin topped with hollandaise sauce. Roesti potatoes and fruit were served on the side. Beebs loved her dish, and thought the potatoes were seasoned very nicely.
