On a warm day in December, yes there was one, two friends and I decided to do lunch at Merryberry. Street parking was really easy in this quieter part of downtown. Aside from the food, which I’ll get to, the décor could give you good ideas about what to do with a much over- papered room. Just peel a bit here and there to show the various patterns and then get an artist to do an angry birds theme over this. We found it very whimsical not to mention imaginative, and the kids will love it.
We, on the other hand, loved the food. One friend and I went for the adult grilled cheese, which really pepped up an old favourite, beginning with good bread and excellent cheese. My other friend ordered the Lady K sandwich, which she raved about. Not sure who Lady K is but her sandwich featured smoked salmon, goat cheese and pesto and roasted red peppers. She certainly has good taste. We had a glass of wine with our lunch and excellent coffees as well. The menu choices were very original.
I asked a couple dining next to us about their lunch. They were most enthusiastic about the soup of the day and said they lived in the neighbourhood and were regulars because of the interesting changing menus. Our service was friendly and fast. We will certainly return and one friend said next time it would be with her two grade school grandchildren.
