Coquine is a wonderful French Bistro in the Yonge and Eglinton area with an atmosphere reminiscent of Paris. Some of their French brunch items include Pain Perdu and Crêpe au Poulet. The Post magazine had an article rating the French Onion Soup here as the best French Onion Soup in Toronto. Also, some of their desserts deserve special mention, as they have Pudding Chomeur and Brioche Trempee (bread pudding with rum soaked raisins in a caramel rum sauce). The restaurant will have a limited ala carte menu for us rather than the full menu.
The address of the restaurant is:
2075 Yonge Street
Toronto, ON M4S 2A4
Subway to Eglinton. Then walk about 4 blocks south on Yonge St. to the restaurant.
There is a $2 per person Meetup fee for this event.
