Let There be BRUNCH on Pitt

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page –Mike Crites and Troy Paquette are about to realize a lifelong dream, as they prepare to open their new restaurant, BRUNCH on Pitt this Saturday, November 30th at 8 am.

The newly renovated restaurant will feature a fast and affordable breakfast and lunch with a bit of a twist. The focus will be on quality yet simple ingredients, elevating tastes and textures, resulting in a quality menu.

“Our philosophy is to use excellent technique to elevate simple ingredients to make fine-dining quality affordable and approachable to all,” says Troy Paquette, Co-owner of BRUNCH on Pitt. “Basically, honest scratch cooking with fast friendly service.”

Breakfast and lunch menus will be structured with a focus on value but patrons will have options to enjoy seasonal local products in the form of regular specials. Java lovers will be treated to fresh, locally roasted beans that will be offered two different ways. First, in traditional fashion, offered free with breakfast orders. The second will feature a special bean of the week, curated and hand-ground in a single-serving french press.

Early risers, shift workers, and people on the go will no longer be stuck with franchised processed food. The restaurant’s full menu will be available throughout the day, offering customers home-cooked meals regardless of their unique schedule. Takeout will also be available from day 1, with plans to branch out into online preordering in the near future.

“We want to make fast simple and delicious food and drinks available to people that are up early or on their way home from an overnight shift,” says Michael Crites, Co-owner of BRUNCH on Pitt.

Crites and Paquette, who were born in Cornwall, left to spread their wings in the culinary field. With a combined 40+ years of experience in the restaurant and hospitality industry, Crites and Paquette are back home to share their love of food and to have a positive impact on the city they call home.

“We will be having a “First Responders Special”, say Crites and Paquette. “Whether it be Fire, Paramedic, or Police all emergency first responders will be given priority service and discounts to get them back taking care of the city with a great meal as soon as possible.”

Hours of operation will be:

  • Monday – Friday: 6:00 am to 3:00 pm
  • Saturday & Sunday: 8:00 am to 3:00 pm

BRUNCH on Pitt is located at 537 Pitt Street in Cornwall. They can be contacted by phone at (613) 935-6397 or on Facebook at:
