Farine opened on June 1st, 2015 in the charming neighbourhood of Mile End. It is a small restaurant with a take-out counter where you can expect to enjoy exceptional homemade dishes. Owners and talented chefs Samuel Pinard (ex Salle à Manger) and Juan Lopez (ex Salle à Manger, Gema) have put together a concise and exquisite menu. “We like to do less, but do it very well!”
The decor of Farine is simple; lots of wood, small tables and stools to sit on when eating. The two owners/chefs built everything themselves.
Everything is made in-house – “except croissants, which come from Les Touriers” and charcuteries from La Salle à Manger. Try the homemade pizzas – as eaten in Rome, small salads whose ingredients change according to seasonal availability and prioritize Quebec produce, homemade pasta, sandwiches and pastries. And when in season, oysters and seafood are also available. Farine’s ingredients are local and organic. Savoury dishes are prepared by Juan and the desserts by Oswaldo Preciado. On weekends, come and enjoy the delicious brunch. For beverages, there is coffee and sodas. Everything is prepared to be either eaten on the spot or as take out – “Farine’s concept offers the convenience of a ready-to-eat philosophy”. It’s a bright industrial-style space that has a small counter with 12 seats. The small restaurant also has a catering service, available for lunches, dinners or early evenings and is often used by offices in the surrounding area.
“What I definitely prefer here is the ability to meet and chat with so many exceptional people! Sometimes you see a pregnant client but then she disappears for a few weeks and she comes back with a baby! It’s an incredible opportunity to be so close to our customers.”
We love the warmth of Farine, their comfort food, the friendly service, the decent prices and the bright daylight!
