03-02-19 | Best In Toronto

Brunch has over the years become a weekend staple for Torontonians, no matter
the weather. Come rain or shine, us resilient city-dwellers will travel far and wide
in pursuit of the ideal meal to start our day. As contentious (and unfair) as may it
may be to try and pick a select few restaurants, we’ve painstakingly compiled for
you our list of some truly excellent brunch establishments.
Lady Marmalade
(265 Broadview Avenue)
No stranger to these lists, this Leslieville institution has been providing quality
food to customers for years. Fresh from completing renovations, the nineteenth-
Century townhouse exterior opens up into a sleek and modern décor that will
take your breath away. Despite the new look, old favourites remain, with their
impressive Build Your Own Benny selection and Cheddar & Spinach Waffles
continuing to bring hungry customers every weekend. Fair warning: they don’t
take reservations, so the sooner you arrive, the less you’ll have to wait in line!
Smith Restaurant
(553 Church Street)
A darling of the Church-Wellesley community, their unchanged menu of freshly-
produced dishes continue to tantalize customers of this adorable three-floor
establishment. Offering simple yet scrumptious food such as smoked salmon
Ballina Benedict, long-braised brisket hash and generously portioned breakfast
pancakes, you’ll be guaranteed to leave you with a full appetite. If that wasn’t
enough, they also have the cutest sheltered back patio; the perfect place to sip
on mimosas for any occasion.
Aunties & Uncles
(74 Lippincott Street)
Located on the outskirts of Kensington Market by College and Bathurst, this cosy
boutique brunch spot gives off homely vibes with its intimate setting and food to
satisfy the soul. The cinnamon French toast is divine, as well as the croque
monsieur, served with challah bread and packed with swiss cheese and black
forest ham. Not content with being remarkably pretty all year round, the patio
during summer in full swing makes Aunties & Uncles look positively picturesque.
Saving Grace
(907 Dundas Street West)
Steps away from Trinity-Bellwoods Park, you’ll feel very unique being one of only
26 people seated in this quirky bistro. Never one to disappoint, caramelized
banana French toast and plum almond pancakes are but some of the fantastic
menu options to enjoy while nestled on one of two levels. If you’re in search of it,
the line-up of people outside waiting for the doors to open will give it away with a
trip to the park afterwards a must during the summer season.
Emma’s Country Kitchen
(810 St. Clair Avenue West)
If it’s delicious comfort food that you seek, then this is the place for you. With a
rotating menu of amazing quiche options and a heavenly biscuit and gravy dish,
a friendly staff will have you feeling right at home. They also offer a wide range

of frozen goods like their curried chicken and lentil soup so you can take a slice
of Country Kitchen home with you. Charmingly honest and ever-reliable, this
local favourite is worthy of the hype.
