  • 8

I am looking to celebrate a family members birthday with a fabulous fall brunch in a rural setting somewhere within an hour of the GTA. All reccomendations welcome.
Thanks

  1. What side of the GTA are you referring to? One hour from Mississauga will be different from one hour from Oshawa.

    Some recs:
    Millcroft Inn
    Langdon Hall

      Brunch at Millcroft is fantastic, i photographed a family birthday brunch there in the summer.
      It's in Alton - about an hour from Toronto. Attaching photos of the Eggs Benny, dessert and a shot of the menu.

    2. There's also the Ancaster Old Mill which apparently has lovely food and is at/near Hamilton.

        Thank you for all the recco's! I think Millcroft looks just perfect.

      2. If you're looking for dining + atmosphere, the Stone Crock in St. Jacobs is worth considering.

        The food is pretty good but the nice thing is, walking around St Jacobs, just taking in the sites is a great after-brunch activity, particularly in the fall.

        2. We were at the Millcroft in May for a family birthday brunch and it was really disappointing.The risotto was tasetless, the eggs benny only so-so and the service terrible. As well, there was a very unpleasant sulpher odour wafting up from a vent. All previous meals there have been super, so perhaps this was just an off day. The "pod' isa lovely room though it's often booked up .

          1. I like EastDell Winery for a casual out of town brunch. Ask for a window table. The view is very nice.
