Seriously. This place serves, quite possibly, the most disgusting brunch in all of Toronto. I'd rather have breakfast at Tim Hortons. (How badly can you screw up eggs and bacon. Very badly.) Everything was burnt. The service abysmal. Choices were limited. And the price was twice what it should have been. If you go, order a double Caesar instead of... More

We went for brunch and 3 of the 4 of us ordered the Breakfast Sizzler - not sure that's the name but a dish with egg, bacon, tatertots, and corned beef. It was really yummy and plenty to eat, although one section of mine tasted like something was slightly spoiled or 'off'. Price is reasonable. Wait staff are generally good... More

I was so looking forward to brunch here over the long Labour Day weekend. I had friends visiting from the East Coast and I recommended that we head here based on prior experiences. Big mistake. They have revamped their menu, again, and it's not for the better. I love eggs Bennie. That's why I go to brunch. I also don't... More

Horrible service. Ordered drinks then waited for 20 minutes for the server to say "oh do you want food?", no we only had our menus down waiting for 18 of the 20 minutes. Then after our orders were taken it took over an hour to get the food that was freezing cold. The server didn't bring any condiments even after... More

I've been to this pub 4x now all prior to concerts at the Molson Amphitheater, as it's close to the GO station @ Exhibition. Good atmosphere, servers have always been friendly and polite. Service speed & meal delivery varies but when slower it's obvious it's due to it being crowded. I must admit I do find their menu limited &... More

Good vibe and fairly good food. It does get busy though so make sure you arrive early! Music was a bit loud but no one else seemed to mind!!

I have been to the Brazen Head twice this summer, both before concerts at the Ampitheatre and enjoyed the drinks, service, food and atmosphere. Service was great, servers were very attentive and they got us in and out in great time. Highly recommended the pitchers of sangria (white and red) and the fish tacos! Will definitely return!

Stopped in here for a couple of drinks at around 4:30 pm on a Saturday before heading to an engagement party. We sat on the large outdoor patio which was busy with people eating before heading to the soccer game. The place inside was packed with people doing the same thing. The food looked amazing! The friendly server was working... More

On the patio on the 2nd floor - first the serve forgot one drink order and then we ordered nachos and never got them.... Server never noticed! But yes it was on the bill and the server had no idea! Better to skip the Brazen Head and go to the Foggy Dew! Much better service!!

We went for some drinks and food before going to BMO stadium and I was pleasantly surprised. There are several patios to enjoy the day on and we enjoyed all types of different drinks and food; all of which were fantastic. The $5 burger and fries special was amazing! I had the fried chicken sandwich with salad as well as... More

Neighborhood Profile
Queen Street and West Queen West
Known as the Art & Design District, West Queen West is one of the most energetic and dynamic of Toronto's neighborhoods. Along with its great modernist museums, clubs, and restaurants, it's home to some of the funkiest specialty shops, ranging from clothing to stationary to collectables, and caters to niche and vintage shoppers of all kinds. That makes it a mecca for creatives, including hobbyists designers, writers, and painters. With ink on their hands and fabric pelts in their bags, visitors to Queen Street traverse the avant-garde blend of historic architecture and ultra-contemporary fare. Home to some of Toronto's chicest hotels and most modish java fixes, busy with street cars, and always suffused with live music drifting onto packed patios at bars and clubs by nightfall, the vibrancy of West Queen West is undeniable.
