Best Bennie on the planet

My wife and I were fortunate enough to live near this gem for several years. That allowed us to be selective in terms of timing so we could avoid the lines which are epic. Hands down the best brunch place I've ever been to. Try the mango bacon Bennie and you'll be ruined for Bennies for ever. We... read more

We caught a street car to get here as it's a little off the beaten path. We got lucky and got a table straight away but we did see a large number of people queuing as we left so arrive early! The clientele is a little rough and ready! But the food is very good and the hollandaise sauce on... More

Excellent ALL AROUND! Had the eggs Benny with Avocado, Brie and Bacon. Perfectly poached egg and Hollandaise sauce crazy amazing. I'm not to keen on potato sides but Lady Marmalade's are delicious, crisp with a hint of heat. The entire plate was flavourful. This place was so great, I returned 3 says later and had the same thing! Lined up... More

Cash only, don't go with plastic! If you go on a weekend or holiday you will huddle/cuddle in-line inside or dodge dogs & baby carriages while you linger outside, despite the weather, but it's worth the wait! According to my normal (?) non-vegan friends Lady M has the best Bennys they've ever had. They certainly have the best vegan breakfast... More

Always the longest lineup during opening hours so get there early! Great food but they lack in service due to the number of customers. They always tried to give me the bill before I finished my meal :(

I went here with my daughter (twenty something hipster) on Monday when many cool places are close, and we both really liked it. Especially the food and service. The ambiance is a little rugged for my taste, but right up her alley. We are both looking forward to taking a visitor there this weekend. That is a fast repeat in... More

Coffee, tea, pastry, eggs, greens, sausage... everything was first rate. I will eat here again next time I am in Toronto in the morning.

Lady Marmalade is hands down the best breakfast restaurant in Toronto. Located in a small storefront along the trendy Queen Street East retail strip in Leslieville, kitschy 1960's kitchen furniture decorate this semi open kitchen restaurant with weekend line ups down the block (try to get there before 9:30 am on Saturdays). The food is worth the wait. Try the... More

Was there on my own. Saturday morning. Had a bit of a queue to get in but was worth it. Delicious Eggs Benedict with avocado and bacon - YUM.

Lady Marmalade has become the hottest breakfast joint in Riverside ... or is it Leslieville? Hard to tell, everything seems to run together on nouveau, Queen Street E, between the Don Valley and Pape. There were two of us on this early Friday morn. She ordered the bread pudding style french toast, which is served with fresh fruit, syrup and... More
