Like the earth, a sandwich is made of layers and gathers its strength from its meaty core, which pushes condiments toward the crust to erupt and bury fingers in deliciousness. Let rivers of mayo magma run with today's deal: for $5, you get $10 worth of hearty, homemade café fare at Ciboulette, located on Barrington Street.
Ciboulette's menu changes daily, and informs expectant diners of the palate-punching possibilities inherent in a variety of breakfast and lunch dishes, which are derived from local ingredients and constructed in-house. Morning meal-goers can mull over a cup of red rose tea ($1.25) before introducing incisors to a hearty vegetarian breakfast wrap—a tortilla-contained soirée of scrambled egg swirling amid melted cheddar and spiced potatoes, supplemented by a side of salsa and guacamole ($4). Paninis approach eaters in shades of ham, brie, and spinach on apricot-hazelnut bread or featuring chili-braised pulled pork with chipotle mayo, tomato, and cheddar ($6.95). Those averse to ambient heat can coddle a cold sandwich such as the traditional egg salad, classic chicken salad, or the established and rather haughty Earl ($5.50).
The self-professed "little sister" of the popular Chives Canadian Bistro, Ciboulette upholds their collective karma by featuring produce from Taproot Farms in Port Williams. Cozy seating with views of the street, warm lighting, and chalkboards scribbled with the daily delectables imbue Ciboulette with an alluring casual ambience, akin to that of a sandaled hypnotist.
