Downtown Toronto is famous for it’s nightlife, so what better way to end a great night out than to start the morning off right with a scrumptious, hangover friendly brunch? Or if you’re a morning person, any of these spots will be sure to get your work day started off right. If you live in the area, or are planning on visiting in the near future, these are 5 must try restaurants that will be sure not to disappoint.
- Saving Grace – 907 Dundas Street West
A low key and low cost spot in the heart of Dundas Street, Saving Grace offers a variety of customizable, anything really! From scrambled eggs and bacon to chocolate chip pancakes with whipped cream, Saving Grace is known for it’s easily customizable menu. Even though this restaurant is low on the list, it still deserves to be on here just as much as the others.
- Le Petit Dejeuner – 191 King Street East
Most famous for it’s Belgium waffles, Le Petit Dejeuner is a cozy little all day dining spot in the heart of Downtown Toronto. Having a retro vibe, dining at this restaurant is a sure delight alongside amazing food. This spot is the definition of “cheap eats”.
- Aunties and Uncles – 74 Lippincott Street
With a name like Aunties and Uncles, who wouldn’t want to give this place a try? From personal experience, nothing quite gets me hooked like consistency, and this restaurant does not disappoint. You can pretty much smell the eggs frying and the bacon sizzling from all the way down the street. A must try for all the classics.
- Lady Marmalade – 898 Queen Street East
Open 7 days a week, a newly renovated Lady Marmalade is the go to for customizable eggs benedict, which happens to be a favourite of mine. The overall atmosphere here is great and the staff have always been nothing but pleasant. With very loyal customers, there is sure to be a lineup every Sunday morning to enjoy their delicious food. There is no wonder this hot stop made the list.
- Easy Restaurant – 713 College Street & 1645 Queen Street West
If having dual locations downtown doesn’t give away that this is the best spot to snag some brunch, then I don’t know what does. Best eggs benedict in town and their steak and eggs comes in close second. Friendly staff, a great atmosphere and even better all day breakfast is enough to make any great restaurant, but there is a reason Easy Restaurant took the number one spot. You must go for yourself to fully understand.
While different experiences may switch up the order of these restaurants, there is no doubt each individual spot deserves to be on here. Whether you’re simply a pancakes person, a gluten friendly eater or a eggs benedict with rye bread and pulled pork instead of ham kind of person, all of these restaurants will be sure not to disappoint. A good brunch is reason enough to get out of bed in the morning, even after the roughest of nights.
