Any recommendations for brunch in Bloor West or Roncesvalle Village in Toronto?

    Mitzi's on Sorauren - great brunch but getting a table can be a challenge. Go early.

      Lots of choices on Roncesvalles. Butler's Pantry has fabulous French Toast and is casual an inexpensive. River and Boho are still reasonable but a little nicer. River's back room is especially warm and relaxing.

        Two popular but hit-and-miss choices (in my opinion) are the Sunrise and the Freshwood Grill.

            Have only been there for dinner but River is a nice place. Socially minded restaurant, too, helping at-risk youth train to qualify for steady, better paying jobs.

              Oh yeah, I'll second Easy.

                Easy is great.

                Noticed that they may be expanding the restaurant, as there is a large storefront on King St., just E. of Roncesvalles that has an "Easy" sign. It will have a great view of the lake!

                  I also like Easy at queen and ronces.
                  There's a new place on Dundas West right where Dundas and Roncesvalles meet.
                  It's called 'B' and is drawing a pretty good crowd in its first weeks.
                  Good Eggs Benny, served on a tea biscuit.

                    Chopin has a brunch, if you like homestyle Polish food. Haven't tried them for brunch yet, but the dinners I've had there have been amazing.
