What’s your favourite Father and Sons order?
As a University of Ottawa student, I feel that there is some sort of spell put on us that makes us go to Father and Sons for literally any occasion.
Tough day at work and need a brew? Father and Sons. Hungover from the night before and need a cheap, balanced breakfast? Father and Sons. Absolutely nothing happened but you want a bite or a drink (or both)? Father and Sons.
And, as a student-athlete, I would say that my post-practice need for a drink means a trip to Father and Sons. But, since Father and Sons is also a convenient distance from my house and the Fulcrum office, I can’t get through my day without the urge to drop in.
Honestly, the amount of my money Father and Sons has taken should be a crime.
Not just mine: my boss’ and plenty of Gee-Gees athletes have spent a fair amount of time at Father and Sons, and here are their favourite orders.
Cole Newkirk, a second-year to the Gee-Gees basketball team, goes for hot and honey wings.
“No other wings can compete with them,” Newkirk said.
From the women’s basketball team, Brigitte Lefebvre-Okankwu is someone who makes the best out of her breakfast order.
“Breakfast special, scrambled, bacon, and extra home fries with extra seasoning,” Lefebvre-Okankwu said.
Extra seasoning is definitely a high-IQ play. Definitely, something I’ll try next time I get home fries.
Gee-Gees cheerleader, Reese Handley, enjoys the breakfast special as well.
“I love breakfast, and I feel like it gives me the best variety of breakfast foods,” Handley said.
Dante Lafontaine, a veteran on the men’s ultimate team, has quite the sophisticated dinner order.
“I’ve tried almost everything,” Lafontaine said, landing on the “buffalo chicken caesar wrap with a pint of Belgian Moon.”
And, in case you were wondering, “my favourite appetizer is the buffalo cauliflower.” Our EIC: the breakfast steak cooked medium rare with no eggs, extra home fries.
Now, I must ask, what’s your favourite menu item at Father and Sons?
