The Hoof Café Is Pig Heaven in Ontario: Dining Posted June 8, 2010 Any other experiences at this place by anyone else?Chiming in with JenC on this one: multiple time. I'll be bold and state that I enjoy the plates at the Hoof Café slightly more than those served at the Black Hoof. (Don't throw stones at me please!)Here's another point of view in case JenC's wonderful posts don't have you salivating enough.Hoof Café 1Hoof Café 2Hoof Café 3Hoof Café 4 (coming up)I swear I do eat at other places. I've been there as a 'holding tank' for the original Black Hoof across the street.And it was OK - but not as exciting as the original. Not particularly cheap either.But, I emphasize that I haven't been there for Brunch - which is the meal getting the rave reviews.I will confess that all my experiences were only at Brunch. The fare served at midday is worth the effort of trekking out to Trinity Bellwoods on a weekend morning (some courses more than others). It makes me sad to note that they are no longer serving "Mike's pasta" which was the highlight of my meals, but that's easily comforted with a plate of pig tails & grits. One caveat, there is quite a juxtaposition of mild savouries (beautifully prepared) with tooth aching sweetness. I don't have that big of a sweet tooth so I find much of the syrup/reductions cloying. Thankfully there's not enough present to drown the rest of the dish (of the i.e. pancakes, french toast, crepes). On weekends they offer (limited supply) the bone marrow doughnuts. Often I've missed out, but finally encountered them 2 weeks ago. If you like cake doughnuts (and those the size of a thumb nail) you might enjoy them. They come fresh from the fryer, and as such, the bone marrow center melts creating a wet interior (crumb). It's not really my thing (wet doughnuts), although I know some people who like to dunk their doughnuts in their coffee.
