Saturday breakfast/brunch restaturant/buffet recommendations in downtown Toronto!
It's my husband's birthday on Saturday and I want to take him out for a really good breakfast. I'm looking somewhere nice, downtown, with either generous portions or a buffet . Cost doesn't matter..... I've heard raving about Hot House's SUNDAY buffet, which would have been ideal =0(
King Eddy will be $40+ per person. The Windsor Arms Hotel also does a brunch buffet on weekends. I suspect the price will be similar to the King Eddy. Call to be sure. Coquine does a decent brunch, but it's not buffet. The Miller also does a pretty good brunch prix fixe for 3 courses (one of which is a mimosa or bellini) or a la carte. I hear that the Globe does a nice brunch as well (I think they may also do a prix fixe or a la carte). I highly recommend the King Edward Hotel's brunch, if you don't mind the $$$. It's a pretty impressive spread that will please all types of eaters. I just focus on the seafood (oysters, lox, shrimps, mussels, smoked trout, poached salmon, seafood salad, etc.) and the veggies and I'm a happy girl. They do all manner of eggs and hot breakfast items too, as well as dessert. Go hungry!
I host Saturday brunch every weekend. Here are some places that my friends and I enjoy:
Frank at the AGO
Zoe's Bakery & Cafe on King West
La Bodega in Kensington Market
Barrio Lounge in Queen East
The Peartree Restaurant in Cabbagetown
Mildred's Temple Kitchen in Liberty Village
You might also want to try the Distillery District - I know Mill Street Pub & Restaurant do a Saturday brunch as well.
