Lonestar - Kanata

When someone told me that my favorite restaurant would be offering breakfast, I let our a little squeal of excitement. Today we got the opportunity to try it out and we weren't disappointed. We arrived at Lone star (Located on March Road at Carling) at opening time-10am ready to eat!

We were the first customers to arrive and were seated in the middle of the restaurant at a big table to accommodate our group. We were brought high chairs and a kids menu with crayons. Lone star also offers a unique carseat holder so that the bucket seats could sit along side the table like a high chair. Toast girl's orange juice came in a small plastic cup with a lid and straw and a couple baskets of chips and salsa were placed on the table to stall our hunger before the food arrived.

The menu was what you would hope for from this restaurant. Breakfast Fajitas, Huevos Rancheros, Breakfast Enchiladas, and of course a 2 egg breakfast. There was only one children's option- Eggs with toast and bacon.

The coffee was really tasty. I'm not sure what they put in it. Cinnamon maybe? I just wish that the waitress had returned with it more often.

The food took a long time to arrive, which was surprising because there were very few customers there. It was worth the wait, though. My mouth is still watering just thinking about it. The breakfast fajitas are made very similarly to the dinner version. Scrambled egg and your choice of steak or pork grilled with onions and peppers are brought out on a sizzling skillet. You roll your own fajitas using a tray of toppings (salsa, sour cream, Pico de Gallo, etc) and their amazing tortillas. The enchiladas were made with the same delicious tortillas stuffed with seasoned scrambled eggs, grilled peppers and onions, and topped with a salsa-like sauce and cheese. They came with spicy baked beans. It was all fantastic. The kids breakfast was good except that the eggs were very peppery. Toast Girl had a bite and got upset because they were spicy. The waitress was very nice about quickly bringing her a new plate of scrambled eggs without any seasoning. Toast Boy, who will eat anything, gobbled up her spicy eggs in no time. Once the eggs were replaced, she cleared her plate. It came with eggs, bacon, toast, and beans. Our breakfast guests had the Texas two deal with the eggs, bacon or sausage, toast, and beans.

The place is quite family friendly. It is big and no problem if the kids are loud. There are change tables in the bathroom, plenty of high chairs/booster seats/carseat holders and the staff is all very friendly.
