Commodore Grand Cafe & Lounge
The kids were at daycare and we had about an hour to have a late lunch before we had to pick them up. We headed towards downtown, easily found a parking spot and looked for a place to eat. We wanted to try a place that we normally wouldn’t consider because of the kids and from the many choices, we picked the Commodore Grand Cafe and Lounge.
I have never stepped foot inside the Commodore Grand Cafe and Lounge before but my impression was that it was a cool, trendy and modern lounge for having an “evening-out”. In contrast, I discovered the interior to be your run-of-the-mill pub and lounge type decor and atmosphere. No biggie as I was very hungry and in a mood for some pub food. Peeking at the neighboring tables, this looked like a place where they served incredible taste combinations in well-sized portions to go along with a cold beverage.
After ordering a drink each, We ordered a Commodore Beef Burger for $12.95 (choice of a chicken breast or their handmade beef patty served on a ciabatta bun along with lettuce, tomato, red onion, pickles and dijon mayo) and the Grilled Chicken and Chevre Ciabatta for $13.95 (goat cheese, tomato and spinach served with roasted garlic mayo). We had a choice of soup, salad or french fries and we both opted for the fries.
Service was very fast as our burgers arrived at our table within about 10 minutes after ordering. The chicken breast was cooked perfectly but it was all about the goatcheese as it added a creamy flavour to the overall taste. I love homemade beef patties and the Commodore burger was juicy and had loads of flavour. The fries were cooked just right as they were nice and crispy and not overly salty.
We were very pleased with our lunch experience at the Commodore Grande Cafe as our hunger was successfully satisfied and our thirst quenched!! We have to make plans to return (once again without the kids) with some friends at dinnertime to try out their fondue experience as we have only heard good things about them.
