One of Toronto's best places!

Whether you come for breakfast, lunch, or a coffee break, Hank's is by far one of the best places in town. Wonderful staff, warm atmosphere, and a truly "neighbourhood feel".

We tried Hanks as it was just around the corner from our hotel and had great reviews. The service was good, and the place was clean. The breakfast was just average unfortunately. The potatoes were undercooked and quite hard which was a bit off putting. Being honest, we probably wouldn't return.

We came for breakfast, and since there's not much besides eggs on the menu, I chose the Hank's Benny (two poached eggs with fresh tomato salsa, avocado, toasted English muffin with hollandaise, & served with crispy home fries). It was heaven — maybe the best egg dish I've ever had. The hollandaise was perfection, and the potatoes were spicy and... More

Had breakfast here and wish we would have gone there the first day of our trip because we never would have wasted out time eating breakfast anywhere else. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. It is very small but we were able to get in without too much of a wait because the service is so fast... More

Busy place. Good service. Food: I had the "cheesy eggs" was was a generous portion of cheddar cheese slathered scrambled eggs with real-potato hash browns and bacon. Priced well at $10.00 HOWEVER... if you're not a peppercorn lover, advise your server. For some reason they add that to the eggs. Coffee was good. Would I return?? Absolutely!

Had a great Sunday morning breakfast! Eggs with cheese and hollandaise sauce. Fair price for a great breakfast. Also the mimosas were perfectly made.

Chose this place based on it's location. Went in a group of 4 around 12:30 pm on a Saturday. We were greeted and seated immediately. Water came almost instantly and drink orders were taken and delivered within minutes. We ordered the Avocado BLT, the Breakfast Sandwich (added Homefries as a side to all of these) and the Breakfast Poutine. All... More

Me and my girlfriend came in for breakfast on Sunday after visiting the antique market. I ordered the breakfast poutine and my girlfriend ordered hash-browns and eggs. WOW the poutine was amazing the fries and hollandaise sauce was out of this world. The hash-browns were cooked perfectly and were some of the best we've ever had. The service was great... More

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!
