Chicken & Waffles
cheddar & thyme waffle, spicy battered chicken thigh, confit garlic cream, pickled shallots
two soft poached eggs, cheddar cheese curds, Boursin hollandaise, chives
warm fried truffle choux, parmesan, truffle aioli
The service and ambiance were great.
The ribs were overcooked and dry, and the eggplant fries were horribly grease-laden. I would not recommend ordering this dish.
Outstanding. The food was just fantastic. Service 100%!!
Love the place.. keep coming back
Worth checking out. We really enjoyed it!
Good place for brunch, informal and cozy. Nice ambience
Vendome is terrific. It was always a lovely brunch spot, and the evening dining is even better. Excellent service and delicious food under warm lighting.
Food was excellent and service was very good. Only hitch was that our server knocked over our bottle of wine. We only lost about 1/2 a glass of wine but no attempt was made to compensate us for the loss. We thought perhaps a reduction in the bill or even a dessert might have been appropriate.
Delicious dinner. Our waitress was a sweetheart ❤️. Great evening 👍🏻
The service was horrific. Did not get asked once how our food was on any of the courses. No one filled our wine glasses the entire night. Our plates never got cleared, had to go up and ask to get them cleared and for a dessert menu. Food was fantastic, service was terrible.
Fantastic meal. Great flavours, all our dishes. Great service. Would definitely come back.
Excellent - can’t wait to come back !
It’s always such a vibe at Vendome Cafe. I was just slightly disappointed in my breakfast poutine, the potatoes were way too crispy and hurt inside my mouth when i chewed. It was very dry and not well put together as my eggs and hollandaise were brought separately hence making my breakfast poutine dish even more dry.
Food was fantastic and service great. Good value and not overpriced
This was the first time I’ve gone for dinner. Usually I go for lunch/breakfast. But we went before the movies and our food was very tasty. I would have loved to see one or two more vegan options on the menu (lactose intolerant) as I was very limited as to what I could get. I wish I remembered the name of our server because she was incredibly joyful! (Tall, slim with pigtails). She was very cheerful and helpful & very much seemed to enjoy her job! So kudos to you and her. Steak was great, the chicken was also very tasty! Decor/vibe is great in there too! Thank you!
Very nice atmosphere and update from the previous iteration of this cafe.
This is the 2nd time I visited this place. Loved the food and the ambience. Mozzarella Pesto Grilled Cheese is a must try!
We’ve had the lamb shoulder pappardelle the last 3 times we’ve been there, along with one of their other entrees and we are always pleased!
I really hope they keep that pasta dish on the new menu as well 🤞😋
Oat latte was great ... so much so I had to have twofold! Food was very average.
The interior is inviting though we chose to sit outside, which opens up to the Kensington community, lovely ambience with the right weather and it was glowing outside! We were treated well and the service was timely, never a moment without efficiency. We went for brunch so for food we had their staple go to and the Poutine which was amazing, came with super fresh Mimosa's. For our treat we got a Panacotta to share and it was one of the tastiest deserts I've had to date! Over all an awesome experience.
My wife and I always love going to Vendome, the staff always hit it out of the park. The food is always amazing and love the revolving menu so every time there are new dishes to try which is super refreshing as apposed to the same old all the time. Would 110% recommend to anyone.
Good quality food, great service
A bit expensive for what you are getting. Servings are in the small side, but good atmosphere
Had the one egg Benny with pulled pork and hollandaise sauce. Was well made. The potatoes were just ok. Will be back.
Was disappointed to find that their menu changed significantly from previous. Bought a double eggs benny, which I used to come here for often, and found that it was half the size for a similar price to prior. Super disappointed in the value, as this restaurant used to be a lot more bang for your buck.
Great date spot - service is great and the atmosphere is good vibes
Broccoli/Halloumi salad has WAY too many croutons and not much Halloumi.
Fries extremely salty (and we both love salt!)
Have never been here before, but came for dinner for the first time. I liked the portion sized of the food because it keeps me from overeating, though some may say they are small for the price. My whole family agreed dishes were on the salty side, especially the cod, and we are by no means low-sodium consumers at home. I think maybe dinner isn't the best at this restaurant, but the rave reviews about breakfast and lunch still make me want to come back and try those menus instead. The restaurant is really pretty and the servers are great. My family was the loudest table ruining the ambiance unfortunately because we have a few loud talkers. Hope to come with less people some time to try the breakfast and lunch!
We have been here for lunch, but this was our first time having dinner at Vendome. Or server was very good, giving us just the right amount of attention. The food was delicious…we will be back
Great for outdoor dining during the warm months, the area is outstanding for people watching and walking around. The restaurant is located in aa amazing neighborhood.
The food is amazing, I usually opt for the Sunnyside breakfast since it has a little of everything. The whole menu has items to suit every taste.
On this day our service was slow and I believe the server totally forgot we were sat. However she made up for it with keeping waters full and checking on our experience for the rest of our meal. I wouldn't hold it against the restaurant at all.
I think this is a gem for Kensington and would suggest it to everyone to try.
Our anniversary patio dinner on a Tuesday eve was lovely, but then there seemed to be a meetup off moped/motorbike/Vespa owners right outside and the noise level leapt. Loved the white bean dip ‘share’ and the mains - a huge portion of ribs for him, a small (but tasty) entree for me of mushroom barley risotto, which was very yummy. Maybe a side of bread/crostini or veg, tho the sprouts on top we’re very fresh. I’d definitely return, just not to the patio on a Tuesday night! First visit here was tasty and the service was good.
Quaint and unique cafe, wonderful and friendly service and the food was delicious!
Food and coffee was really good but they clearly had too many tables for the amount of staff. Staff was very kind given the situation but it was awkward always trying to track someone down to get any sort of service.
Best eggs Benny I’ve had in a long time! Service was amazing! Will definitely be going back on the regular!
Food has been lackluster lately (undercooked pancakes and french toast, everything overly greasy). Service takes forever and the waiters seem bored and slow. Our drinks arrived lukewarm both times we visited in August and September.
Great service and food was exceptional. Can’t wait to go back
I’ve dined at Vendome for breakfast, lunch and dinner and have enjoyed every visit! The food is amazing!
The food and restaurant was good, however the service was very poor. Our table had to ask for multiple things to be brought to our table after we initially asked our waitress for but failed to do so after about 20 mins. We where never checked up on until our sever asked us if we wanted more coffee (but that was after the manager already brought us some). After we payed our server looked at our bills then dropped them on the table and didn’t say “Have a nice day” or anything like that, she just walked away.
Great vegetarian/vegan options.
We enjoyed our time at Vendome. There were smiles from all those working there. Our server was very pleasant and helpful when we asked questions about the menu.
The staff was extremely friendly and provide great service. The don’t have their coffee selection on the menu but do make delicious and pretty coffees. The food is delicious. I got the pancakes with pulled pork added and was delicious. Will be going back again to try out some more.
A great new menu by Chef Alejandro. A must try!
