Breakfast at SMITH Restaurant (Inn at The Forks, Winnipeg)

Have you ever been to a restaurant, bar or even hotel that just speaks to you? Maybe you’re drawn in by the menu, the decor, the service, or a beautiful combination of all three. Or maybe it has that certain je ne sais quoi.

Smith Restaurant in the Inn at the Forks is one of those places.

Whether you’re enjoying a staycation, a family gathering, or looking for a more intimate rendezvous (yes, even for breakfast), Smith Restaurant should be at the top of your list.

The setting

Country chic. Comfortable. Warm and modern. In a nutshell, Smith’s interior is a blend of styles with something to appeal to everyone. And, given that Smith is a popular spot not only for breakfast but dinner and the after-dinner crowd as well, its appeal transcends the morning hours. Let’s call it Canadiana fusion, with wood features, modern lighting, leather and benches covered in Hudson’s Bay point blankets.

The service

Professional and yet personable fits the service to a tee. From the host, who was unfazed when we showed up early for our reservation, to our server Angela, with whom we shared a few good laughs. The service matched the situation and exceeded our expectations.

The menu

“Not your mama’s eggs” comes to mind when describing the menu. Not that there is anything wrong with her eggs, but Smith’s chefs have succeeded in creating a menu that features local, seasonal, and Canadian products, which really bumps those eggs up to the next level. Sure, you can order the Hotel Breakfast—which consists of some good old-fashioned eggs with a choice of bacon or sausage—or oatmeal (with a Saskatoon berry twist), but there are a few more interesting options.

My favourite of those interesting options is the Eggs Copenhagen. It might be the Scandinavian blood in me, but the Eggs Copenhagen called, and I was not disappointed. Two poached eggs with smoked lox and rösti potato came together nicely. Of course, no breakfast would be complete without a good cup of tea or coffee, and here, too, we pleasantly surprised.

In addition to the usual selection of teas, cappuccino, espresso, and Americano coffees, Smith offers a French press coffee option. We gave the French press a try, and it was exquisite.

If you’re looking to kick off your day with some good food, give Smith a try. Perhaps you, too, will find that it has that je ne sais quoi.

Feedback on TripAdvisor rates Smith a four out of five with “value” having the lowest rating. This isn’t surprising, since restaurants in hotels are typically pricier.
