The food is great and the place is charming ! Old mix and matched furniture . The bagel called 'the cowgirl' is ten bucks which is a lot for a bagel, but really yummy! The service is as excellent!

I had breakfast here with family, including a one year old who wanted to explore. The staff were very welcoming and didn't bat an eye as my nephew walked around the space, looking in nooks and craneys. We had a delicious breakfast, good coffee and relaxed, but helpful service. It was a really pleasant way to start the day.

This is a cozy cafe in the art district. There's not a lot of seating so it can get filled quickly. I went there on a Tuesday morning and barely got the one table left. I got a bacon and avocado omelette with toast that was delicious and filling. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. It can get a... More

Great selection, really tasty & huge portions at a friendly price. I had the Nicole omelette with half potatoes/half salad & it was so tasty! All the treats look so delicious, the staff are really friendly and the music is really fitting. A great little spot to check out!

I'm lucky enough to live pretty much next door to this restaurant. Their breakfast items are all pretty awesome, it's too bad their quiche isn't available on the weekends, it's pretty awesome! They are quite busy at times, so there might be a bit of a wait, but it's well worth it... You can try placing your order while you... More

We had an amazing time! Mimosa special 2 for $10 are amazing, and are 500ml each –they are literally HUGE! I had an omelet ( made from scratch with no dairy = happy me). It was light, fluffy and full of flavor, comes with home fries or salad & 3 pieces of toast. And my bf had their breakfast special... More

I just had breakfast. A little too pricy but still a nice place to hang out and start the day. To be honest the eggs and bacon and potatoes were nothing to unforgettable but anyway I had a good time. Certainly worth to give a try!

On the edge of Toronto's Queen West urban hipster ville, rustic cosmo serves up a mean brunch and a decent latte. I had the Benes, which you get to mix and match the bottoms (bacon, brie and greens, pea-meal bacon, grilled vegies etc.) I thought that was a nice touch! It was served with nice flavourful hash potatoes and a... More

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
The go-to area for new business start-ups, the spry and creative persona of the West End thrives along its streets. Its independent boutiques, galleries, restaurants, and shops offer brands that can't be found elsewhere. Buildings with ground floor consumer spaces sport up-top artist's lofts, and the West End attracts artists, designers, and fashion industry professionals to its living quarters. It is in the cross-hairs of gentrification, but still resisting it with ironic relish. Hot deals can still be found here on furniture and knick-knacks,. Its call to culinary glory is in its well-priced homemade Polish food, hosting Toronto's go-to spots for hot pierogis and cold borscht. High Park, the largest green space in the city, is a place for dreamers and poets to wander and rest, not to mention a number of energetic actors staging outdoor plays in the summertime.
