A brand new brunch spot has opened in the Exchange District! Clementine opened in early May to the delight of the Exchange District BIZ, the community, and to all those who have experienced the magic of Chef Adam Donnelly and Caroline Konrad, the owners of Segovia in Osborne Village.

“We love the community in the Exchange,” said Caroline. “It’s a great mix of students, business professionals, artists and residents. We hope to be an extension of that community and create a cafe that feels welcoming to all of the above.”

When you walk down the stairs and into Clementine, you’re greeted by a trendy and welcoming space complete with exposed brick and stone walls, beautiful wall paper, an open-style kitchen and a coffee bar. The space is absolutely stunning and a perfect environment to enjoy the incredible food.

The menu is diverse, unique and very affordable, especially since you can tell each ingredient in every dish is of top quality. You can enjoy things like Brussels Style Waffles ($8), Chorizo Verde Tostada ($8), Smoked Arctic Char ($12), Braised Bacon Benedict ($10) and fried chicken toast ($10).

Besides their mouth-watering food menu, their drink menu will also not disappoint! It includes beverages like tamarind lemongrass soda, hibiscus lavender soda and more. Clementine is licensed if you wish to enjoy a glass of wine, beer or specialty cocktail. They are also proud to serve Dogwood Coffee from Minneapolis which has a brand new Canadian branch headed by Nils Vik and Vanessa Stachiw, from Parlour and Little Sister Coffee Maker.

Brunch is served all day from Monday to Friday from 7am to 4pm and on weekends from 8am to 4pm. Everything is made in-house including their bread and pastries. The menu will change often and will focus on seasonality.

“We are so excited to meet our customers and we hope that Clementine will become part of their weekly (or daily) routine,” said Caroline.

Experience Clementine today at 123 Princess Street in the Exchange District.
