SUNDAY BRUNCH -- BUFFET ONLY
Folks, I'm looking around for a nice, fairly decent lavish Sunday Buffet Brunch.
It should be close to s subway stop in Toronto, and open by 11AM
I've been to the Windsor Arms, which is $40, and starts at 10:30.
Delta Chelsea Inn on Gerrard is $33, but does not open until noon.
Are there any buffet brunches for Sunday, between $25 and $50, somewhere along a subway line for ease of access?
It is very hard to get this kind of info off Google or websites of restaurants.
But do correct me if I am wrong -- I like a challenge.
my fave sunday buffet is the bloor st. diner
you can access it from the bay subway station or bloor.
Highlights - chocolate fountain w fresh fruit, roast beef, eggs benedict, smoked salmon, delicious mac and cheese, and my fave is the asian noodle salad (not really breakfast-y, but really good!)
Love the King Eddie brunch. Definitely decadent for a buffet, and worth the price based on what's on offer. The only weakness I've noticed a few times is the desserts - sometimes inconsistent in execution (e.g. runny creme brulee). From what I recall they open at 11am...but I would call to double check (may be earlier).
I've been the buffet at the King Eddie and we were seated in the ballroom, although when it's crowded, the tables spill into the Victoria's restaurant area and the lobby. When making reservations, I would request seating in the ballroom just in case it's packed that weekend.
The cold buffet had a good seafood selection (smoked salmon, shrimp, crab claws, seafood salad, etc), and we actually spent more time chowing down there than on the hot buffet items.
Thanks to all who have responded. Here's my list, based on your research and others:
The price usually indicates some special feature, such as Lobster at King Eddie or Crab but no lobster at Courtyard.
Prices rounded up to nearest dollar.
King Edward - $50
Windsor Arms Courtyard - $40 (pretty good stuff)
Chelsea Inn Gerrard - BB33 - $33 - opens at noon
Old Mill - $32
Boiler House Distillery District - $25
Bloor St Diner - $22
Free Times Cafe - Bella Brunch - $20 (best in town at this price, free klezmer music)
Hot House Cafe - $19 (usually packed with people)
Is that it? Just 8 Sunday Buffet Brunches by a subway line or in downtown Toronto?
