Promenade Cafe

promenade cafe saint bonifaceDave and I had never been to the Promenade Cafe just across the Provencher Bridge and only a five-minute bike ride from our home. dinner at promenade cafe saint bonifaceLast week we  cycled over to meet our friends there for dinner. patio promenade cafe saint bonifaceIt was a rainy cold day so we couldn’t use the patio with its nice view of the river, the bridge and the New Human Rights Museum. However the atmosphere inside was pleasant and warm and we enjoyed our meal immensely. couple wine tastingDave and I opted for the restaurant’s unique ever-changing Prix Fixe menu which allows a couple to share a four course meal including a half glass of a different wine pairing with each course. It’s a great deal! You get more than enough food and our bill ended up being substantially cheaper than our friends who’d ordered in a more traditional way from the interesting menu.  pate trayOur first course was a butcher block with pate, spicy mustard, salad, pickles and herb seasoned toasted French bread. Of course paired with a nice white wine. goat cheese saladNext came a salad topped with creamy goat cheese. This is one person’s portion. chicken dish promenade cafe st. bonifaceThen a chicken dish with mushroom bacon wine sauce, creamy potatoes and brocoli. It was so good I was half done before I remembered to take a photo. chocolate dessert promenade cafe And finally a luscious chocolate dessert that quite literally melted in your mouth accompanied by a dessert wine.  It was a satisfying and throughly enjoyable dining experience. The waitress was friendly and informative and the restaurant obviously popular with the place quickly filling up for dinner. Now that we’ve been introduced to the Promenade I know we’ll go back. I’ve heard their breakfasts are excellent.
