Reasonably priced brunch buffet in Toronto with good veg and seafood options also capable of accommodating a group of maybe 18?

I was thinking Hothouse Cafe or Bloor Street Diner but haven't been to either in so many years I have zilch memories of them. Also, not an Asian buffet (i.e. no Chinese, Indian, etc.). We'd all be going on a Sat or Sun.

  1. Sunday Buffet Brunch

    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)

    Just 8 Sunday Buffet Brunches by a subway line or in downtown Toronto?

      I used to always want to try the Free Times Cafe and I'd forgotten about it since. Thanks for all those suggestions!

      I think most people are driving so it doesn't have to be THAT close to a subway.

        That's a GREAT condensed version of our buffet brunch discussions all this time... that's a keeper of a list, Dean! :)
