I love Moderne Burger! They make some of the best veggie burgers in town. The burgers are large. I always get one platter's worth of fries and share it with someone else. The dipping sauce is really good, a smokey flavoured mayonnaise. Not something I get every time as it is really rich.
The decor is great and the owners are very friendly.

I've been to Pair Bistro a few times for dinner and keep going back despite a few flaws. I'm vegetarian and pretty satisfied with the few options they have despite a tendency towards the typical overuse of mushrooms in the vegetarian entrees. It is generally possible to make up a meal from the side dishes that they offer if needed. The bannock is kind of fun and the sweet potatoe fries are fabulous.
I appreciate the emphasis on local and seasonal foods and the attempts at using organic produce.
The restaurant is really small and the seating is kind of cramped. They could probably do without the bar and definitely without the television. They need to decide if they want to be a fine dining establishment or a lounge/bar and pick one. This restaurant is also very loud when full which it frequently is.
