Brunch Sunday before touring ROM

  • b

Looking for something that's not too expensive and won't have the usual Toronto brunch-fan huge queues to get in. Ideas??

  1. While not cheap, C5 has a lovely brunch and it's in the same building.

    1. Gallery Grill at Hart House does a nice brunch. It's just around the corner from the ROM.

        Second this option. I would say it is mid-price point not cheap but not expensive.

      2. Holt's Cafe is also mid-priced.
        But it doesn't open until 12:00.
        Only 5 minutes away.

        1. Over Easy. http://www.overeasyrestaurants.com/

            Great idea, Jennjen!
            I love C5 (had brunch there 2 weeks ago) and do want to get to the Gallery Grill sometime, but my friend was hoping for something 'diner-ish'. Over Easy fits the bill and couldn't be more conveniently located.

              Beware of early morning lineups on weekends!

          2. Caren's Wine and Cheese has a great brunch. I just saw your response above though and it definitely isn't diner-ish.

              Dim sum at Dynasty? I personally think Over Easy is terrible.

                Ditto on "Over Easy". Totally mediocre. Prefer every other rec on this thread - expanding the radius slightly, you could also add Aroma, Insomnia and Cantine.
