I had heard so many great things about the food from people living in the area, but I didn't find it very impressive when I had a chance to go.
I had ordered the french toast with fruit, and for $10 I expected more than 1/2 a strawberry and two slivers of grapefruit. The french toast was fine, but it took almost an hour before any of the food arrived - and the place was not busy at all, there were several empty tables. Thank goodness for free coffee refills.

Still not sure why people were so in love with this place, and wondering if I just had an unusual experience.

One of our favorite neighborhood places especially to bring kids. Great brunch and terrific burgers.

If I lived in the area, I'd come here for brunch all the time.

It's lonely and grey on Bathurst St, but Grapefruit Moon provides the little bit of sunshine. Food is, I believe, locally grown. Fairly pricey and sometimes a miss, but generally a pretty decent place to go in a city overrun by mediocre establishments.
