Recs for Breakfast/Brunch Close to Yonge/Wellesley?

Staceyy May 8, 2009 11:12 AM

Hi All,

I am a native Torontonian but I have guests from out of town and we are staying close to Yonge/Wellesley.

I was looking for some breakfast and brunch recommendations within 10 to 15 minutes walking distance.

I really appreciate it! :)

    If you want straight-up greasy spoon breakfast in a for-real diner, try Coach House on the east side of Yonge a stone's throw north of Wellesley.

      Yes - a step back in time. Comfort food.

        I passed by it yesterday and saw a notice that they are closed until May 11.

          Oh and pardon me, I meant to say WEST side of Yonge.

          A third for Fire on the East Side. They have a great brunch.

            2nd that FOTES recco. Never had brinch there but often go for dinner. Nice cozy space and the food has always been reliable.

            There's also the Bloor Street Diner in the Manulife Centre.
