Brunch with The Courtney Room
Enjoy the flavours of Vancouver Island in springtime with innovative and classic
brunch dishes and cocktails
Brimming with Vancouver Island farm-fresh produce, The Courtney Room launches a new brunch service, featuring delicious dishes and cocktails, available every Saturday and Sunday from 7am to 2pm.
Menu highlights include Shakshuka ($20) with spiced chickpeas, tomato and black kale, topped with perfectly poached free-run eggs and sesame seeds; Buttermilk Fried Chicken & Waffles with sumac pickles, cabbage and fermented chilli maple gravy ($23); and Crab & Gruyere Omelette ($22) grains of paradise, chives and free-run eggs served with hashbrowns or local greens; alongside classics such as Smoked Salmon & Eggs ($22), Breakfast Sandwich ($18) and TCR Burger ($22). For those with a sweeter tooth, the gluten-free Buttermilk Waffles ($18) with fruit compote, whipped cream, poached fruit and candied walnuts is sure to delight.
“We are excited to be able to welcome back guests with brunch service,” says Renée Lauzon, restaurant manager of The Courtney Room. “Our kitchen team’s relationships with local farms such as Littlest Acre Organics for beautiful eggs and Square Root Organic Farm for weekly vegetable deliveries have provided us with ample inspiration for our new menu, which will change with the seasons.”
In addition, the restaurant’s talented bar team has crafted an innovative brunch cocktail menu, featuring The Jumpsuit with peanut butter washed whiskey, bitters and bruleed banana; Jam Jar with vodka, housemade preserves, herb syrup and citrus; and local takes on brunch classics including a Mimosa with Averill Creek Vineyard’’s Charme de l’Ile and TCR Caesar.
To keep guests safe, The Courtney Room team has increased spacing between tables to exceed correct distancing measures, as well as closely adhering to stringent cleanliness standards in all locations within the restaurant space. Where necessary Plexi-glass barriers, floor decals and signage have been placed to maintain distancing and assist with movement and the team has been trained to provide their signature service at a safe distance and with caution.
