The atmosphere is decent, plywood sheets line the walls, a plasma TV is situated on the wall behind the bar and was playing bad Sunday cartoons (those ones that neither the kids nor the adults like), and the owner was standing on a stool drawing a large fish on the chalkboard.
I went to the Wallflower on Sunday to get some food to recover from my previous late night partying. My friends were there already and had already ordered their meals. The menu seemed to have a good list of comfort food items (poutine, pasta, burgers, pot pies, sliders, etc) that were reasonably priced. The breakfast items listed were cheap, only 7 dollars (choice of an omelet, or basic breakfast burger or a basic breakfast). I was on a pie kick, so I ordered the beef, mushroom and pea pot pie with fries for 12 dollars and the other late comer ordered the grandmas fried chicken (12 dollars).
The chalkboard listed some drink specials and they were great, cheap like the Bourbon on a Thursday. Doubles were only 4.50.
The food was good. I was a little sad my pie wasn't traditional and baked in a crust, instead it was more like a stew on a piece of pastry and an additional puff pastry on top. It really didn't matter because I did the UK thing and spooned it all over my fries. Pie on fries rules!!!!!!!
My friend commented that grandmas fried chicken was decent but was pan fried, when she was hoping for a deep fried piece of meat. My friends' breakfasts looked good and was liked by all. My sample of the potatoes verified that they were super tasty. Some friends with a sweet tooth ordered the apple pie which was a whole apple, surrounded by crust and ice cream on top. They are labelling it as one of the best apple pies that they have ever had.
Overall, this place was solid. Well priced comfort food, in a nice environment. One hiccup during lunch was that one of our friends order was missed. Mistakes happen but there were only two groups in there so the circumstances were not much of an excuse. I will be back to try more items but I do have the feeling things will be hit and miss.
