Breakfast near the Sheraton on Queen West

Hello!

It's my first time posting here.
I was wondering if anyone knows of any good breakfast or brunch places near the Sheraton at 123 Queen Street West.
Some friends from out of town and i will be exploring the city and will probably head to the St Lawrence/Distillery District area after catching breakfast.

Thank you!!!

  1. the sheraton has a perfectly good breakfast/brunch...hot house near your destination is terribly popular, there is a Fran's across from Massey Hall, Sunset Grill at Yonge and I think Richmond...

    1. If you're going to the Distillery District, you should just have brunch there. Grad a pastry (sweet or savoury) from Brick St. Bakery and a coffee or tea from Balzacs. Eat as you wander. Have chocolate from Soma for dessert.

        I think there is a juice bar in the Distillery too, opposite the bakery.......? If fresh juice is your thing.

      2. The Gallery Grill at Hart House (U of Toronto) does a fantastic brunch.
        Absolutely perfectly poached egg, great smoked salmon, and I also recommend the fritata.
        It is about 15 walk from Sheraton. I would suggest you make a reservation.

          Gallery Grill is closed for the summer.

        2. The Senator rocks (www.thesenator.com) There is also B Espresso Bar (www.bespressobar.com) and Le Petit Dejeuner on King at Jarvis. You also have Le Gourmand at Richmond and Spadina (www.legourmand.com)

            I have to disagree with you on Le Petit Dejeuner, currycue. It used to be one of my favourite little spots, but I went recently after a gap, and found it overpriced ($10 or $11 for the bacon-and-eggs standard?) and the food quite underwhelming. They also forgot some of the things our meal was supposed to come with, and were generally a bit chintzy. One of the more disappointing meals i've had in a while. Will take more than shiny booths and cute music to win me back...

              Agreed. Never understood how Le Petit Service ever got it's rep. Love the handle, btw, punchythecat.

                Thanks, googs. You're not so bad with the handles yourself - Le Petit Service... that's a keeper!

                I must admit, I haven't been for breakfast in a while, so that could very well be true. I orignally found their sides to be rather chintzy ($2.50 for a soy sauce dish of rosti?) but in that area, it's tough to come by a good spot.

                  Zoulpy's makes a good breakfast with large portions and small prices. You might want to try it. Nothing fancy like Petit. Just a regular diner with regular diner fare. You order at the counter and they bring it to you table. Swiftly.

            2. try Eggspectations, on Yonge, north of Queen. Or "Over Easy", on Yonge, between Wellington & Front Street.

              1. If your going to Distillery District go to Moring Glory on King St. just wast of Parliament. It's a short walk from the Distillery.

                1. I've heard BeerBistro on King, E of Yonge, has a great brunch. Definitely consider the other recs as well, esp. B Espresso Bar (not a full sit-down brunch), the Senator (one of my faves - excellent breakfast) and Brick Street Bakery in the DDistrict (same, not sit down, but great pastries and snacks).
