Jules Bistro Cafe
147 Spadina Ave, Unit 109
Jules Bistro Cafe might be one of the reasons that I love Toronto. Just a skip and a hop away from the likes of Milestones and Jack Astors, a Parisian Cafe setting awaits you, complete with authentic French offerings and rugged wooden tables.
After hearing good things about this small resto, le boyfriend and I skipped our usuals in favor of something different. The decor in itself was reason enough for me to check it out. Exposed brick, chandeliers, and intimate lighting were all quite enticing and created a lovely atmosphere.
The food, while not groundbreaking, was still very tasty. Both his steak and my sandwich could be served with frites or salad. My health-conscious self had a tough time deciding between the goodness badness of some oily fries and vitamin-packed salad. Decisions, decisions. Well, our server had solved my dilemma by suggesting I have both, only 1/2 salad and 1/2 frites…get this…at no extra charge! And while I was expecting a tiny portion of salad, accompanied by a tiny portion of fries, instead I got a heap of both. If that’s not amazing, I don’t know what is.
We didn’t have enough time for the desert, but the items on the menu sounded delicious, and I was left wondering if I should’ve tried one of their tartes or crepes. Coupled with a chic French-inspired decor, lovely music, and fantastic service, there’s no doubt about it – I’ll be back!
