Before we headed for our first introductory lesson on horseback riding, the group of my friends and I had breakfast at The Fickle Pickle. It’s a small family restaurant that is located on one of the many shops and eateries on Main Street in Stouffville. I don’t quite remember, but this may have been my first time in Stouffville. It’s far up north and east where there are not many people and resembles a small town. We popped in here for breakfast since the horse owners recommended it for some good food.
We were a group of 10 and they didn’t have any large tables to accommodate all of us, so we all squished into two booths. It was a homey place and very casual.
I ordered a French Toast. I realized that this was probably my first time having a western-style French toast at a restaurant. The other times I’ve had French toast were at Chinese HK-style cafes. The difference between the two styles is that the Chinese mostly make the French toast using a huge square bread while the French toast I had here was the more authentic kind. I could taste a lot of the egg on the outside of the toast. It actually may have been too eggy for me, but I loved adding the syrup onto the toast. It was still quite good.
My friends ordered Eggs Benedicts, English-style breakfasts, eggs and sausage, etc. All your typical breakfast stuff. The restaurant also serves lunch and dinner later in the day. It seems to be a popular place — there was another diner next to it that served all-day breakfast but it was nearly empty while The Fickle Pickle was full of people and even had a line-up of people when we left the restaurant. This is a quaint restaurant to try if you are in this area.
