    I would definitely recommend the Sunday brunch at the King Edward for high end. It is expensive, but special! The room is exquisite and the presentation on the buffet is very nice -- not piles of food on each platter, but refilled often.

    I would not recommend the Old Mill. We recently received a gift card and went for Sunday brunch. Although the setting is very nice, the food was very mediocre and the room was quite dark.

    Enjoy!

      On the off chance you arent in Toronto, try the brunch at Perspectives restaurant in the Brooksterrt hotel in Ottawa. It has everything and has never diappointed us or the groups weve brought there, including a group of 40 a few weeks ago, service, quality, variety, its all there.

        The one that sticks in my mind is at The Doctor's House in Kleinburg--great surroundings, amazing variety of dishes, they have two sittings, check the website.

          In Toronto, I've had really good brunch in the lines of what you're seeking at the Windsor Arms.

            I've been to the King Edward Hotel two or three times for brunch. They do an excellent job. I'm a seafood and veg eater, primarily and have feasted on oysters, mussels, shrimp, crab, lox, smoked trout, along with all manner of grilled veggies, dips, cheeses, breads, crackers, fresh fruit, pasta salads, grain and bean salads and more. I never even made it to the other stations, which were serving roast beef and other cooked meats and hot sides, eggs done many ways, bacon, sausages, desserts, etc. This is really the buffet to top all other buffets. Not every item was a hit, but most were of high quality and the platters were regularly restocked and arranged attractively. The servers are quite good. The King Edward is very adept at handling crowds. I've been there on Easter Sunday when tables spilled over into the lobby.

            Thanks everyone for your replies.
            I think the King Eddy will be high on the list.
