Good Breakfast Meetings Downtown
Where are good places to take a breakfast meeting in Toronto?
+ Healthy (e.g. granola / breakfast burrito),
+ Tasty (e.g. Jules, Bonjour Brioche),
- NOT stuffy (e.g. four seasons, ritz),
- NOT gross (e.g. golden griddle, coras, etc),
- NOT too noisy.
Must be open from 8am M-F.
Would love chow ideas! Many thanks :)
Most of the places I'd go for a breakfast meeting (such as Epic at the Royal York) are on the stuffy side compared to Bonjour Brioche or Jules.
Maybe Terroni's Bar Centrale at Summerhill would work, if Summerhill is close enough to downtown. Bar Centrale opens at 8 Mon-Sat. http://terronicentrale.com/
Also consider Le Neuf, which opens at 7:30 am. I haven't been. http://leneufcafe.com/menu
Most places I'd go for a tasty, midweek breakfast (Easy on College or Queen W, Le Petit Dejeuner, Detroit Eatery, Patachou, Patisserie Sebastian, ViVetha on Yonge ) aren't places I'd go for a breakfast meeting, and most aren't located downtown.
It sounds like you've found some food you like at the Thompson Diner. What would you recommend, in case I end up at the Thompson again? I'm not a fan of the Thompson Diner's grilled cheese, which is the only thing I've tried from their menu. My friends' orders didn't impress them much, eihter.
If you're happy with a diner atmosphere, I think the breakfasts, and food in general, are probably better at the Patrician Grill, Avenue Diner and the Senator.
If you don't mind heading a little further west, the Drake serves a great breakfast.
