Vegan friendly go early go often go hungry just go!

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... read 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

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

This quirky little restaurant on trendy Queen Street East has for years been known for their fabulous breakfasts. This is still the case. The service is prompt & friendly & the food is simply excellent & delicious. Be aware that they only accept cash.

My daughter introduced me to Lady Marmalade on a recent trip to Toronto. Although we had to wait 10 minutes on a Monday morning for a table it was worth the hunger pains! The menu was extensive but finally chose the Crepe Croque Monsieur for brunch and was not disappointed,

It became mine and my friends' favourite brunch spot every weekend. Always so busy. Always so good. Their smoothies are the best too. Banana-ice cream-peanut butter... mmmmm. Lots of options for veg also! Great service and atmosphere! Oh is ot breakfasttime yet!!!
