Saturday brunch at a place near the Yonge subway line, between St.Clair and Union

prima May 4, 2012 05:44 AM

I've got Earth, Lola's Kitchen, the Rebel House, Bar Centrale, The Monk's Table, The Rosedale Diner, The Senator and Beerbistro on my list. What other places should I consider?

What does Bar Centrale offer for breakfast or brunch?

Has anyone tried the brunch at Toca?

Thanks for any ideas.

      Maybe Origin? Not far from King station.

        Hey Prima, don't forget Cafe Doria. It's one of my favs. Everything their is good. Just noticed someone having a frittata yesterday and it looked really good. If I can ever manage to not order my usual spring salad and soup this is what I will try. I love their pizza and paninis but trying to stay away from the carbs these days.

        Btw, any recommendations for Monks Table? Never been but noticed a crowd outside the other day. Is it good?

          Yes, I love Cafe Doria. Haven't been for a while.

          I've only been to the Monk's Table for pub food at night. Will have to get around to trying their brunch, one of these days. Nice to see Huevos Rancheros on the Monk's Table brunch menu.

            Thanks! Do you stick with bacon & eggs, or are there other brunch dishes you'd recommend?


            Nice to see they have huevos rancheros on the menu. Will have to give this place a try!

              I've had quite a few things on their brunch menu and they are all fabulous. I am more of a savory than sweet person and would recommend the Eggs Benny, the Huevos Racncheros, and the Easy as Pie - if you're ready to eat for an army. Their breakfast meats are also quite delicious with maple added to them. One of the few places I will actually eat, and enjoy, breakfast sausages.

            Fire On The East Side (Wellesley) or, more upscale Holt's Cafe (Bloor).
