Beaux Mondes – Papa Leo’s Review

We have mentioned before that we are located in Hamilton, Ontario, but specifically we are on “the mountain”. Our family is not only born and raised here on the mountain, but this is also where we work and play, our heart is up here on the mountain. And even that can be more specific, our heart lies with Concession St. Concession St is where we hope to open a store front one day, and (at one time or another) almost every single person in our family has worked in a business on Concession St. So awhile back when a new restaurant opened up on Concession we knew we had to try it.

Papa Leo’s is located on Concession St by the hospital, it is a very cute breakfast bistro that uses local ingredients to make some of the most unique meals I have ever had the pleasure of tasting. Recently Beaux Mondes reviewed Papa Leo’s and it turns out they love it as much as we do!

Following the first visit Adam and I made to the restaurant, it quickly became one of our favourite breakfast spots in the city. Owner Leo’s reason for choosing the spot was simple, it’s in the neighbourhood he calls home. (Read more)

They tried the french toast (cinnamon and nutmeg battered french loaf garnished with honey yogurt and fresh fruit), my personal favorite is the breakfast sandwich (two fried eggs, choice of bacon, back bacon or sweet chorizo sausage with lettuce, tomato, and cheddar cheese. Served with fresh cut pan fried potatoes) but my husband always gets the Heuvos Rancheros (fresh corn flour tortilla, refried beans, and two sunny side eggs, topped with chorizo, avocado, fresh mango salsa and cilantro). However, Leo often does a “today only” creation, something new and special, I would ALWAYS recommend getting whatever it is, I do and it has never failed to blow my tastebuds.
