Via Cibo - Italian Streetfood

This morning we visited a new place that opened in Kanata Centrum - Via Cibo Italian Streetfood.
I have driven passed it several times, but this passed week I noticed that they offer weekend brunch. Upon entering the restaurant, the brunch menu stands on an easel and you pay as you order at the cash.
 The open kitchen behind the cash is filled with staff working on making lattes, preparing plates, or sliding pizzas into the fire burning oven.
The children were enthralled by the displayed gelato and jars of Italian biscotti and other baked goods while I ordered. We were given a number to place on the table and went to choose our own seat. The eating area is open, well lit and nicely decorated.
There were many children, couples, and people of all ages. In about 10 minutes, we were brought our plates.

Cappuccino, which I had to taste right away. It was delicious!

Blueberry Lemon Risotto Pancakes

Arugula and Proscutto Eggs Benedict with homefries with grilled onions and peppers.

Nutella-Banana French Toast.

All were delicious! I was very impressed and the kids gobbled up their meals until they were full. There is one children's option on the meal, but we ordered 3 adults meals. The portions of pancakes and french toast are large enough to share amongst two kids. We had a pancake, and half the french toast left over to bring home. 

The price was much higher than I expected. All together we paid just over $60 with tax and tip. This included 3 meals, a cappuccino and 2 orange juices. In the future, I would stick with one adult meal to share amongst the kids and bring their own water bottles. 

The restaurant is family friendly, and the food is prepared quickly. There are a couple of tv's in the restaurant that were playing sports. The atmosphere was very casual and similar to a take-out restaurant, with better food options.

The staff was friendly and welcoming. We would be happy to return or recommend it to anyone.
