Best breakfast place in downtown Toronto!

I was visiting friends in downtown Toronto and one suggested we go to Hanks for brunch. I am gluten and dairy intolerant and was able to find a delicious meal I could eat. So good that I went back the next day and ordered the same thing!

What's to like about breakfast at Hank's? Well, everything. The food is excellent - good menu, dishes well-cooked, served hot. Coffee and lattes are also very good. The general atmosphere of the restaurant is welcoming, and the staff are friendly & efficient. Great breakfast spot to try out if you're visiting downtown Toronto.

Upon arriving, my party immediatly faced rudeness from the staff. We had made a reservation and then were told that "they don't take reservations". They managed to seat our party (with two small children), at the very back of the restaurant right in a service lane. After waiting for about half an hour, our orders were taken and the children...

Perhaps not on of the "best meals" I've ever had at a restaurant, but certainly very good. I had lunch. Enjoyed an apple and cheddar salad and coffee. The service was excellent. And while it was busy, not too noisy.

I went here the other day for breakfast/lunch with a friend. It was pretty busy but we were able to grab a high top table near the bar. The menu sounded pretty good but I landed on my fav, eggs benny. They arrived with some promising looking home fries. All in all. The meal was just alright. Nothing to rave... More

We came here on a Saturday morning, and naturally it was busy so we waited for a table. There was 3 of us, we waited about 30 minutes, and there isn't really a place to wait, we felt a little awkward standing where we were. We got a table finally and the only problem was that it was so close... More

Came here with my boyfriend for brunch on a Sunday. We arrived around 10:30 to find out drinks legally cannot be served in Canada before 11 A.M. .. so we waited a half hour before ordering a caeser and the ultimate hangover drink - both were very good! Food was decent and an overall pleasant experience.

Best lunch/brunch place in the St.Lawrence market! Great staff, & you can't go wrong with $5 Caesars & Mimosas! Highly recommended!
