east end breakfast

seems most of the best breakfast and brunch joints aren't on the East side of town. Any recommendations for the Danforth, Riverdale, Beach areas?

thanks

  1. 3's Company at Danforth and Lamb (just east of Greenwood) is a friendly, family place with nice breakfast options. I especially like the savoury bread pudding, and their coffee is good too. Ten Feet Tall, same area, has received mixed reviews here but I like their breakfast food, particularly the eggs florentine. Neither place is big, though, and both can get busy.

      We've been to 3's Company a couple of times and have to say that it was disappointing, to say the least. We weren't impressed at all. Usually, we go to either the Beacher Café(?) on Queen E. (I know it's been slammed here a few times, but hubby and kids love it there) or the Terminal on the Danforth just east of Coxwell.

    2. The Tulip for breakfast.
      No brunch.

      1. I have to agree with the Bus Terminal on Danforth, I just came from there!! Also good lunches.

        1. there are tons of great places in the east end....if you don't mind spending some $$ verveine i have heard is nice, as well as edward levesque kitchen; hello toast is good - good food, good portions, small but intimate; i had a great breakfast at kubo radio (though there is not much selection for breakfast and service can be questionable at times); if you don't mind crossing the river, petit dejeuner is a personal favorite, and there is always the classic greasy spoon at the canary down by the distillery.

          1. Forgot to mention The Tulip, very popular for breakfast, or the Logan Grill on Gerrard. As the above poster said, there are lots of brunch places down here.
