Lazy Brunch - Xmas holidays

  • v

Will be getting together with old highschool buddies during the Christams holidays.

Any suggestions for a weekday chilled-out non-tourist non-gourmet brunch spot? Perhaps a diner? Good for 6 - 8 people.

College West, Queen West West, or other downtown neighborhood?

    How about Saving Grace on Dundas West? I've only recently discovered this place but it's quickly risen to a high spot on my list of fave brunch spots. Very friendly, laid-back atmosphere and great food. Plus, unlike some of my other favourite spots, they're open during the week for breakfast and lunch (closed Mondays). Highly recommended.

      how about beaver cafe on queen at dufferin? it is perfect for the weekday, the menu is very limited (sandwiches, soups, a couple of mains) but very tasty. very laid-back atmosphere, great coffee.

        Thanks everyone!

    2. Mitzi's sister on Queen west (at Roncesvalles) has a great brunch. Not sure if they serve it during the week, but their other menu items are delicious as well. Fun place, friendly staff.

      1. Boom, it's a breakfast spot on College just east of Ossington, north side.
