Nestled on the corner of Erskine and Mt. Pleasant, this old jaunt has been around since 1948. That’s over 70 years. They’ve become a staple in the neighbourhood which means you may find yourself standing in a line waiting for a table. They offer an extensive brunch menu which includes everything from their take on eggs benny to challah french toast to huevos con chorizo. Their simple interior offers a relaxed vibe for a slow morning.

While their infamous ultimate grilled cheese put them on the map, this vibrant neighbourhood gem offers an array of sweet and savoury options. Stuffed with ricotta and fresh blueberries, their stuffed french toast is a neighbourhood favourite. Or if you prefer something more savoury, there’s the Betty’s Benny with peameal bacon on a Hawaiian sweet roll. You can also opt for making your own sandwich using their fresh home-made donuts. And if you really want to indulge they offer Greg’s ice-cream for those with a sweet tooth.

Enjoy an Italian-inspired brunch in this ultra chic space right at Yonge and Eglinton. The brunch menu is available from 9am to 4pm on weekends and you can choose from sweet or savoury options and coffee or cocktails. The olive oil-fried pancakes topped with whipped ricotta and draped in grappa maple syrup is a popular choice for those with a sweet tooth. Meanwhile, the two crispy duck eggs will please the savoury crew. For those who think brunch should skew more to lunch, there’s also their fabulous pizza to choose from.
