Café du Lac: quebéois in Mimico open today

At last, Québecois cuisine and a welcome new resto in South Etobicoke. Let's hope it's as good as we've been anticipating!

Had my nose pressed up against the glass a few days ago. The door was wide open, lots of activity - apparently getting ready for dinner as there were no customers. One of the staff motioned me inside and I had a look at the menu, which confused me at first, then realized it was a special menu for a private function. Friendly chef came out to say hello and explained that yes, they were doing a soft opening dinner that night before the official opening today.

Their website (http://www.cafedulac.ca/) has been up/down recently, so here's the scoop:
Lunch/dinner Tuesday - Friday and brunch/dinner on weekends.
Tuesdays are mussel night with prixe fare menu.

brunch: $5-12

lunch: $6-12 ($21 with fois gras

dinner: mains are $16-29

Sadly, the only fish offering is salmon, no lake fish or seafood. They do offer 2 veal dishes, duck, lamb, beef and mmmmmm - cassoulet. I think I'll try that. (even if it's technically european). And of course, there's poutine...

We'll try the brunch tomorrow...perhaps dinner next week. Looking forward to it!
