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,

Lady Marmalade opened its second location in Hogtown over four years ago (their first resto opened in Victoria, BC in 2005). And I’m happy to say they’ve stayed the course. Lady Marmalade prides itself on serving up beautiful breakfasts and lovely lunches seven days a week. The continuous four-deep lineups along its Queen Street location — that wraps around the...

I had brunch at Lady Marmalade because it got rave reviews and my friends who have eaten there say it's delicious. I went on a Tuesday at noon and there was a long line up. I waited for about 30 mins but I've seen this place on the weekend so I am well aware you can wait much longer. There... More

As the title says, the spinach salad was awesome with mango, red onion and walnuts. Also had coconut pumpkin soup without dairy, excellent as well.

There is always a lineup of locals waiting to get into this hip East beaches spot. The jumpin’ beats subdue the hungry waiting in line for a table with love – hey it’s not that long so RELAX. I’m not a “brunch” person but in this neck-of-the-woods, I’ve heard it’s the place to go.Mango lassie soothes the angriest of men(and... More
