Brunch in Toronto is all about quality eats and plentiful portions served in spaces that make you want to sit back, relax and contemplate plans for the weekend.
Here are my picks for the top places to eat brunch in Toronto by neighbourhood.
Brunch at Chadwick's is served Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Load up on offerings like brisket hash, rancheros and even chia pudding.
Sophie's Kitchen is a cheery spot for affordable, delicious brunches. Greek yogurt bowls, lemon ricotta pancakes and chicken club sandwiches are just a few of the items you can indulge in.
French toast and shakshuka are some of the real standouts during brunch at the Middle Eastern restaurant Parallel.
Morning After is a sprawling brunch spot offering hulking portions of hangover cures like chicken and waffles.
Fresh baked bread and duck eggs are staples at Cafe Fiorentina, a brunch spot renowned for their quiche, panini and French toast.
Cluny is a modern French restaurant brimming with all the hallmarks of a classic Parisian bistro. Brunch is available Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
The Good Son does brunch with an Italian twist on weekends at their mall outpost from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The Good Fork is known for their epic brunch offerings of blueberry pancakes and ever-changing omelettes. They also do the classics of two eggs, home fries and grilled thick-cut bacon.
When you think of all-day breakfast, you think of Lady Marmalade and their A.M. Poutine with miso gravy or hollandaise and options for toppings like pulled pork or poached eggs.
Rise and Dine Eatery is a breakfast and brunch spot boasting over a half dozen varieties of eggs benny with ingredients like pulled pork and smoked brisket.
Dine on upscale brunches of baked eggs, tuna salad, fluffy pancakes or pizza in pretty surroundings at Figo.
If you love starting your day with waffles a visit to Starving Artist in Rexdale is in order.
Cafe Landwer is an Israeli brunch spot that does shakshuka and tasty rugelach.
Cafe Cancan has a lock on pretty brunch with dusty pink walls and a menu of champagne, lobster and eclairs.
A casual but bang-up brunch of beet-infused Caesars and off-the-wall eggs benny can be had at Dirty Food. Don't sleep on the waffles either.
Farmhouse Tavern is so inviting, a round of Top Chef was even judged there recently. Mainstays are the eggs benny and Caesars garnished with oysters.
The humble breakfast sammy is put on a pedestal at Egg Bae. Made with house-baked egg brioche buns, my personal fave is topped with smoked salmon and potato chips.
The city's lightest and most traditional Belgian waffles can be found at Le Petit Déjeuner, partially because they're made using actual Belgian waffle irons. Their Eggs Benedict is also a straight up classic.
Gusto 101 on Portland covers all the brunch bases with frittata, avocado toast, yogurt bowls and ricotta pancakes.
Okay Okay does all the classics. Order up two eggs any style with hash browns and toast, buttermilk pancakes and oatmeal.
Thick and fluffy buttermilk pancakes topped with blueberries are a must-order at Mildred's Temple Kitchen.
If a sandwich stuffed with an outrageous amount of chicken is your idea of the perfect brunch, head to Egyptian spot Maha's. More traditional brunch fare is the grilled cheese or shakshuka.
BLT lovers can head to Aunties and Uncles to get their fix from the kitschy joint that's been around for 20 years.
Start your day off with eggs benny and a mimosa at North Toronto staple The Homeway.
Buckwheat and buttermilk pancakes, crispy polenta and breakfast sandwiches are just a few of brunch items you can devour at Union.
Easy Breakfast is one of the best places in town for morning eats all day long and they do surprisingly tasty huevos rancheros, too.
You can always rely on Bonjour Brioche for classy brunches of quiche, croissants, tourtiere and of course, brioche.
Time stands still at Amazing Ted's where you can still get iconic meat-and-eggs breakfast specials like the "222" with pancakes, three eggs and choice of meat.
Weekend brunch at Maison Selby runs 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Indulge in smoked salmon crepes, breakfast sandwiches on croissants and quiche.
Eggs Benedict are served on cheddar, chive and stout biscuits and French toast comes with cinnamon pork belly at the lovely Bodega Henriette.
It's all about indulgent brunch offerings at Wish on Charles. They serve everything from grilled Nutella sandwiches with raspberry compote to classic eggs benny with peameal bacon.
You can get pancakes topped with peanut butter ice cream Queen & Beaver. Enough said.
Brunch at plant-based restaurant Planta runs on weekends from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. On the menu, you'll find items like cinnamon buns, pancakes and brunch burgers.
