This was our choice for breakfast, rather than our hotel. It was my first visit, although my family had been before. I was like a wide eyed child perusing the menu.....also a huge variety. Eggs every which way with your choice of accompaniments. It is...More

I'm vegan, but I came here so I could eat with my omni frirnd. When asked about vegan options, the server suggested dishes with yogurt, cheese, and salmon. Very uneducated. Even if they're not vegan, they should know these things because they work in a...More

When in Toronto you must go here and have the eggs Benedict. So good and the eggs are cooked perfectly. I also ordered French toast on the side and it was delicious. Perfect atmosphere, great service, cool vibe.

The service and food was excellent! We each had eggs Benny and they were the best I've had in a long time. Freshly squeezed grapefruit juice is a must have with breakfast as well.

Not that crazy about their potatoes, but the egg dishes are varied and they feature different smoothies and juices. Located just behind the Eaton Centre across from City Hall.

The hollandaise sauce was amazing & the server was friendly. What brought this down to an avg is that the yolk was not runny & the pancakes were a touch dry. Would have helped if we had more than a thimble cap of syrup.

During our week in Toronto we were trying to not revisit places as much as possible. However we found this too good not to go back again the next day. Selection was superb and all so well presented with attentive service on hand.

I was looking forward to having breakfast here since the reviews were so great. I had the smoked salmon benny. The eggs were overcooked so I didn't get that nice runny yolk I was looking for. Pretty disappointing for a place that specializes in eggs...More

Totally worth the wait, but can be really busy. Bravacado is a good choice for breakfast if you like avavado.

This breakfast venue opens at 7 a.m. The staff were very welcoming. The cafe was clean and comfortable. The selection of breakfasts was vast.The hash browns were wonderful. I really enjoyed my breakfast.

Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of

Hi, Just asking about their eggs. Does the person(s) handling the grill, actually know how to cook eggs? Reason I'm asking, is not to be rude, but have been sooooooo disappointed in that it's very hard to find a place where the staff actually knows how to cook an egg and not have it underdone or burnt (not browned but blackened) omelets. It's so hard to find a great breakfast place here in Toronto. Thank you!
