Hi--can anyone suggest a decent place for Sun. brunch near Toronto's Union Station? Great food, not too fancy would be perfect. I'd appreciate it!

      Le Petit Dejeuner:


      Expect at least a small line up though, it's really good.

        Actually, oddly enough because I do not like hotel food at all, I second the rec for the Royal York. It's a beautiful property and the exec chef has a veg garden on the roof, he's really pash about his food. Also the Kind Edward hotel has a gorgeous buffet brunch. Enjoy TO, spend some time exploring!

          Jamie Kennedy Wine Bar- excellent brunch; highly recommended

          Please, please avoid Marche and Cora - ick, ick,ick

            Second Jamie Kennedy on Church just south of Front (five minutes from Union)

            Not only one of the best brunches, but one of the best restauarants in Canada. Get this: they serve Canadian food! And no Eggs Benny.

            And any two dishes for $20 is a deal for a place of this quality.

            Avoid Cora's — it's a chain and unfathomably popular (half hour line-ups!)

              Right across the street, there's a good Sunday brunch buffet in the Epic restaurant at the Fairmont Royal York hotel.

                for the love of god, do NOT go to Marche!! promise me this!
                personally, i'd suggest that you walk north to queen st (10 minute walk north) and take a streetcar east for 5 minutes to leslieville. the brunch pickings are pretty good between Broadview and Pape. and its not hard to get there

                  It's only a 15 minute walk to Jamie Kennedy Wine bar at Front Street East+Church Street for their Sunday Brunch, which is great. Also.......Cora's, North of Front Street West, on Blue Jay Way, but it's more of a simple little breakfast.
