Excellent Food

Excellent food and a great hippy vibe. The service is friendly and you don't feel rushed. I love the bacon avacado Brie Benny and huevos rancheros and bread pudding. Only drawback is the long queues.

This restaurant is great! The food is inventive (like the house-made beet-Apple-ginger juice) and flavorful and the customer service is very good, too! However, it's a small restaurant so there's usually a wait of about an hour. At the end of the day, I don't believe it's worth waiting an hour for eggs. There are equally good restaurants around with... More

Wonderful brunch enjoyed while shopping downtown. Fresh local ingrediants. The hollandaise sauce was lemony and delicious. The spicy salmon sandwich was scrumptious. Huevos rancheros were great. This is a perfect breakfast or lunch restaurant for anyone looking for fresh homemade quality ingrediants. Just remember CASH only... No credit Cards....

After seeing all the positive reviews here, I wanted to check this place out. Well, not really, but my brother did, so we went. Monday morning, packed. Cash only, not great. Usually cash only means better prices, but not here. For just under $30 had we each had the hash browns with two eggs. In a fancy restaurant I could... More

Seeing weekend after weekend line up around the block at this brunch place got me curious. So off I go to join long line up!!Where some people munch on snacks and drinking coffees from near by shops while patiently stand in never ending line up. If you come in pair your chances of getting table are faster. Lucky us! We... More

The restaurant was almost full even at 8 o'clock on Saturday morning. We ordered 2 organic buckwheat fresh fruit crepes and 1 of the most expensive eggs bennies. Crepe had a lot of fruits including half-ripe watermelon and over-dried granola. It was a bad combination - tasteless and really hard to chew. I didn't like my crepe, and neither did... More

If you're coming for brunch, do yourself a favour and set your alarm clock to make sure you get there early enough to avoid the line! Being a pair makes it easier to get a table faster too, as opposed to groups of +3. Yummy delights await!

This restaurant serves one of the best brunches that I've had in Toronto. I've gone a few times and never been disappointed! You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. This place is a winner for sure.

Staying in East End

Neighborhood Profile
East End
The East End is an eclectic amalgamation of areas that team up to make this district one of the most multi-faceted and alluring. Home to Toronto's LGBT community hub, Gay Village is alive and pumping day or night with friendly bars, nightclubs, and cafes – its thumb is on the pulse of excitement. For a more relaxed day, the East End has the largest collection of restored Victorian homes, and its stately streets, tree-lined and bursting at the seams with affluence, often sport farmers markets and street artists, epitomized by the effusive St. Lawrence Market. One of the most gorgeous of Toronto's neighborhoods, it also straddles Lake Ontario in an area called The Beach, where you'll find folks cycling and strolling along the sandy shorelines, getting some sun or enjoying shopping, dining, and pub options. For some fabulous food, the vivacious personalities running the restaurants in the East End's Greektown is only equaled by the fun and authenticity of the street stalls and restaurants at its expansive Indian Bazaar. 'Something for everyone' has never been so accurate.
