Brunch/Early lunch Saturday on Ossington

I am taking my teenaged daughter to brunch/early lunch on a Saturday before a show at the Lower Ossington Theatre.

We have been to Union (and loved it). She wouldn't like Delux. I was thinking maybe either The Saint or Libretto.

Any suggestions?

  1. The Saint has been recommended here numerous times for their cinnamon bun.
    Swan on Queen is always safe.
    I just tried the Arrow Cafe (on Dundas, 5min walk from the theatre) this weekend. They make a mean eggs&sausage, and you can wash'em down with some yummy buffalo ice cream.

      The Saint switched out their cinnamon bun with cinnamon donut holes and chocolate sauce. Not an improvement or even a lateral maneuver but the donuts are good.

      Great service, coffee and honest food!

    2. Hoof cafe a short walk on dundas

      1. Thanks for all of the replies. Just found out that they moved the production to the Bathurst Street Theatre at Bathurst and Bloor - so must do White Brick Kitchen. Looks awesome. Will save the Saint for another time!

            You can't go wrong with WBK. Make sure you try the Banana Bread French Toast. It is soooo good!!

              The french toast may only be available on Sundays? The cinnamon bun waffle is available on Saturday.

                I think you may be right. That said, the cinnamon bun waffle is definitely worth going for!! Soooo yummy!!
