Excellent food, comfortable atmosphere

I visited with some girlfriends for lunch on a Sunday morning. We thought that we would beat the crowds by arriving at 11:30 am, but that wasn't the case. It was about a 30 minute wait, which is to be expected, and luckily it was a mild winter day so we didn't mind. The portions were plentiful, and... read more

The food is reasonably priced and very very good. Small seating footprint, so sometimes there is a lineup around 10:30am. In the winter,Bthey do utilize the upstairs seating because outdoor patio not available. We love the Omlettes there, particularly the special squash, spinach and havarti. The home fries and bacon, both extra crispy. My son tried the pancakes with banana,... More

This place was packed! They might want to expand the indoor seating somewhere :D That said, I had a croque monsieur that made the 15 minute wait out in the cold all worth it. Recommended.

When I moved to Toronto a friend of mine invited me to have a breakfast here and I was so happy that when my family came to visit me I had to show them this place. We enjoyed the food, the atmosphere, the music and the staff. Definitely a place to see if you are in Toronto but pay attention... More

When you've been in the brunch business for more than 17 years, you are your magic sauce. Russ is a magician when it comes to all things sweet and savoury for breakfast. From traditional scrambled eggs with a choice of 3 homemade sides, to the make-me-drool-by-thinking-about-them pancakes, I am reminded of why this place drives lines during inclement weather and...

The food here was simple but great quality. We ate outside and while we did have to wait a little while (maybe 20 minutes) the line moved quickly. The staff was really nice and interacted well with my young son. My husband and I both had burgers and they were excellent. Definitely worth the visit.

This place is awesome for brunch! It's not only delicious but also not expensive at all. Lovely to eat outside, though bees tend to fly around your meal. Pancakes are awesome.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
