breakfast @ bloor & spadina
meeting for breakfast tomorrow. would like something walking distance from the subway. thanks!
Try Mel's - Bloor/Brunswick. Should be an easy walk from the subway. Just a warning - the breakfast is a greasy spoon type, not really upscale or anything. However, their hashbrowns are delicious!
I had the same thought regarding by the way but I have my doubts that they are open during the week for breakfast, I would give them a call.
There is a bagel world that has opened up on the south side of Bloor, just west of Spadina. It is casual but they have good breakfasts.
Oh, the perfect place just dawned on me, Aroma. It is closer to Bathurst (at the corner of Albany and Bloor).
They have a fabulous breakfast (IMO) Eggs, toast, salad, cream cheese. Delish!
I went to Mel's for the first time today with a friend, who's been there before. She was happy with her omelette, but I wish I'd sent my latkas back to the kitchen--overcooked almost to burned, very greasy, with a filling that was barely noticeable. And the coffee was lukewarm. Maybe they do better with their more visible (and expensive) smoked meat dishes.
