In the late 1800s, patrons would come to the Main Street area for very different reasons than they do today, namely because a woman named Mattie St. Clair used to operate a brothel in the neighbourhood. These days, diners flock to Mattie’s on Main—named after the aforementioned Madame—for its dynamic, trendy and colourful décor, live music, and all-you-can-eat family-style brunch on Sundays. Start with a peach jam sweet roll, and then chow down on build-your-own omelettes, grilled cheese sandwiches, meats, potatoes and fresh fruit. Wash everything down with bottomless mimosas, bottomless Bloody Marys, or an ‘adult’ milkshake that comes in flavours like the Nutty Irish Man, Ginger Snap or Young Grasshopper. Come on select Saturdays for brunch and a fabulous drag show.
