      Isn't Piggy's closed or has it re-opened yet again? It was closed for good according to the ice cream guy this summer.

        Piggy's Supper Club is gone? Oh that's tood bad. It may not have been the best eggs benny in town, but it had a certain quirkiness to it that typified Cabbagetown.

        penelope, I haven't tried Chew Chew's yet either nor have I been to Cranberries for brekkie. Given how many choices we have in the neighbourhood now, I was hoping to hear how other CT CH'ers feel.

        I can't really justify why I don't go to many of these regularly, although I've tried most of them...

        My choices (in no particular order):
        Big Mamma's Boy - I had really excellent corned beef hash once
        House on Parliament

        Haven't tried Chew Chew's yet. What do you think?

        I end up going down to King East sometimes for breakfast - namely Morning Glory. George St. Diner is meh, but edible. I'm not a huge fan of the Gilead Cafe, even though I love JK restaurants.

          I have to say Big Mama's boy has the best Sunday breakfast/brunch..local, often organic ingredients..yes great EGGS, perfect atmosphere with several room choices..upstairs is my favorite, but patio is great also.
          House on Parliament has outstanding pub food, but I prefer them more for Sunday suppers than brunch.
