Quick bite near the Tarragon Restaurant
Going to see a play at the Tarragon Theatre (Bridgman Street - Bathurst and Dupont) on Sunday afternoon and I have only about an hour for lunch.
The unfortunate thing about the area is that most everything is closed on Sundays - Bistro Tournesol or Dish Cafe would be closest, and they are closed. Annapurna on Bathurst also closed. Ezra's Pound does not serve lunch on Sundays. Indian Rice Factory is only open for dinner on Sunday. The newly opened Diverso by Ferraro doesn't open till 4.
Dos Amigos has a Sunday brunch, but I haven't heard any raves about the place except for a former coworker who may have been influenced by the convenience of location.
Live Organic Food Bar also has brunch, if you're into raw food.

There's also People's Diner (on Dupont just west of Davenport). Only problem is that on Sunday it tends to be packed from about 10:00 onwards (although you might get a seat at the counter). If you're driving, probably worth passing by to see how long the lineup is.
They have terrific salads and one of their appetisers( that I've now had twice -since I really like it) is goat cheese on a portobella mushroom with some roasted peppers. Not sure if they have a website yet.....they are a very welcome spot in our neighbourhood and word is deservedly getting around because they are good!
Haven't tried it for a while, but Universal Grill used to do a pretty nice brunch/lunch. Also at Christie and Dupont in the Faema building there is a good spot for some Italian food, nothing fancy, but its always busy and the coffee is great. Sorry I can't remember the name right now. They do some nice pizzas.
