“Well I've been to a minor place and I can say I like its face if I am gone and with no trace I will be in a minor place” - Will Oldhamthe luncheonette has some competition. alas, another brunswick vs. kensington predicament arises. loving this nifty little breakfast and lunch restaurant, located where else but in good ol' brunswick. what i love most, is the down-to-earth personalities of not only the staff, but also the fellow munchers. a great atmosphere for a meal to start off the day. the interior and exterior design, although simple, feels quite cosy - in a vintage home sort of way.
for those who love a good brunch, the menu is quite drool worthy. the menu is here for your perusal. on this particular sunday morning i ordered the 'the mumbler' - poached eggs on toast with pesto, fetta, spinach, fresh tomato & dukkah; and a mocha to compliment. i'm a lover of pesto. anything with pesto, bring it my way. 'twas a highly satifying meal, as was the mocha, much to my surprise. my friend ordered 'a minor breakfast' - poached eggs on toast with grilled ham, roast tomato, henry’s white beans, spinach & dukkah; which looked, and i'm sure was, just as scrumptious.
re: threethousand reference. i especially agree with the last paragraph. it's probably the best part about a minor place. definitely the kind of environment i like to munch in. will be visiting again sometime in the near future.
"You can generally trust a café with a dog, or a number of dogs, out the front. These are the kind of dogs that would grow a beard if they weren't already covered in hair. The kind of dogs that would play a guitar and sing like Will Oldham aka Bonnie ‘Prince' Billy after whose song A Minor Place is named.
Their menu is what you wish your pantry or fridge looked like, or what your pantry or fridge probably looked like before you moved out of a home to a squat on the north side. Henry's White Beans are famous in the same way that cocaine is famous and talked about in the same hush tones.
Most importantly A Minor Place isn't trying to be anything. It's been around a while and it's going to be around a while longer. It's simply doing its thing in a way that let's everyone else just do their thing and that's the way eating and hanging out should be." - threethousand
