There are so many things I can recommend off the menu at Als Deli! Their poutine is a MUST and so are their Moose Ears (with nutella!). I love visiting their branch in Kingsland as the parking is much easier. However two locations in the city are pretty handy too. Their staff are always great, I've been a couple of times at the end of the evening and they have offered free or discounted donuts, so generous!
Decked out like a retro diner, Al's Deli offer scrumptious Canadian classics such as poutine and hot dogs, as well as more modern offerings like vegan falafel burgers and apple pie fries (served with a hot caramel dipping sauce, drool). I've never found their staff to be particularly cheery, but the food, affordability and fun décor make up for that.
All dressed Al dog was delicious! Best American style hot dog I have eaten.
Hand made cola was amazing! Such a unique yummy flavour. Steak meal had plenty of fries but a little rare with blood dripping even though asked for medium but other than that everything else was great. Even were offered free donuts when we left at the end of the night!
Such kitschy styled cafe resonating with such character, you're warmly greeted by a hospitable server to be seated in a light and airated cafe, reminiscent of retro deli with laminate tables from the 60's.
I absolutely adored my eggs bene with smoked salmon and side of mushroom atop a poppyseed bagel. The hollandaise was freshly made and the texture of the bagel was divine. With my brunch I was treated to berry smoothie with almond milk which was thoroughly enjoyable.
Next time, I'd love to try one of their featured dessert milkshakes which were ordered in our neighbours table, looking utterly decadent and mouth watering!
It was a perfect brunch place having followed a long night out in the city! I highly recommend Al's Deli!
