Lazy Loaf is just off Parkdale Crescent NW along with other small shops and restaurants. It’s near the ice cream shop – Lic’s (another cool place to check out). They do have ample parking but it fills up, as it gets quite busy.
When you walk in you see a display of fresh baked cakes, squares, cookies, and bread. You then stand in line and move towards the cashier. They have a fairly large menu with lots of options. I noticed they offer soups, salads and pastas as well as they have typical breakfasts in the morning. You then proceed to order your food and drinks. It felt like ordering at Starbucks or Tim Horton’s. Once we ordered we were given a number and went to find a table. There was ample seating available so you’re not stuck waiting for a table. Once we sat down, the one thing I noticed was the amount of kitchen noise we heard.
A few minutes later, one of the staff call out your table number and then you go up and pick up your drinks.
We ordered the Eggs Benedict. It wasn’t bad, but honestly we have had better. The eggs looked like they were cooked in a home-style egg poacher because they were all the same shape and size. They definitely weren’t cooked in a pot of salt water. Potatoes were good and the bowl of fruit was really good. We also ordered a Chai Tea Latte and a Vanilla Latte. Drinks were very hot and very good.
Despite our breakfast experience, I would like to go back and try the lunch menu as we did see a lot of sandwiches coming out later during our visit and they looked outstanding. Fresh bread and fresh ingredients.
The area I felt that ruined our Lazy Loaf experience was dealing with the girl on the till, she was not very friendly and honestly made us feel like “make your damn decision and get moving.” I am hoping she was only having a bad day. All the other staff we dealt with we found very friendly and helpful.
Before we left we ordered a couple of squares, as they looked delicious. We ordered a lemon square and Turtle square. I had read that their multigrain bread was outstanding and weighed about 2 lbs. I had some of the bread for dinner tonight and it was really good.
