We were staying at a local hotel in the downtown, and like most they offer an overpriced breakfast (eggs, bacon and coffee should never be $24!). So we walked over to Eggspectation behind the Eaton Centre on Albert. The food is fine, they make a fuss over their "Lyonnais Potatoes" as if these carbs to fill out the plate are... More

Great place for breakfast. Large dishes and just perfect. The fruit plates was huge and very nice. The omelette delicious and the pancakes fluffy.

I haven't been to a restaurant in this chain in years. I remember it as being a pretty basic breakfast place. Well, no more! At least this hopping place next to the Eaton Centre. Great fresh food served cheerfully and quickly despite the very full house. We'll be back.

Took my girlfriend to "Eggspectation" for her birthday brunch. The name is super corny, but the food more than makes up for it. We both ate the eggs benedict, and shared the banana pancakes, all of which were absolutely delicious! Great location as well, very close to Eaton Center.

We first came here last year and loved it so much that we decided to come back again. We are not sorry for our decision. Only negative is how busy it gets but we only had to wait 15 minutes. The staff is great and the food meets eggpectations.

So much choice! Absolutely loved it here. Once you actually decide what you want from the numerous options, you won't be disappointed. My husband ordered the steak and omelette, and although the steak was too overdone, the waiter got this sorted for him straight away, and it was perfect the second time round. Great service. I like that you get... More

This stop is my go to breakfast place whenever I visit Toronto. The service is always excellent and depending on the season you can eat outdoors. As a lover of breakfast the omelets are the best. Coffee is always good and strong and service is quick.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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 vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
