6 Places to Get Rooftop Brunch in Toronto
Spring is so close I can taste it, and with the start of spring comes the commencement of patio season. Is there any better way to spend a morning than sipping mimosas on a rooftop patio, looking over the gorgeous Toronto skyline? Not in my books.
With mouth-watering menus, and brunch cocktails you’re sure to devour, here are 6 places to get rooftop brunch in Toronto come spring.
If dishes like smoked salmon benedict, curried potato frittata and fried chicken and waffles catch your fancy, you’re going to love the brunch menu at Chez Lavelle. As delicious as it is instagrammable, you can enjoy brunch on their swanky rooftop eatery with a pumpkin spice mimosa in hand. Lavelle is currently closed for renovations but will open back up in the Spring, just in time for rooftop hangs.
Serving brunch from 11 am to 3 pm on Saturdays and Sundays, head to Mascot Brewery’s outdoor “beer garden” come spring. Decked out with sun umbrellas and picnic style tables, you can sip on craft and local beers or traditional brunch cocktails like mimosas and Caesars. Dig into fresh waffles, avocado toast or smoked salmon, or take your pick from their variety of egg plates.
Offering up healthy brunch options like organic eggs bennies, steel cut coconut oats and delicious elixirs and smoothies, Harvest Kitchen is one of the best places to get your brunch on. Sit out on the second-floor patio surrounded by lavish tree canopies and enjoy your time in the sun. And if you’re looking for a boozy brunch, pair your meal with a mimosa, Caesar or Florida sunrise.
Gusto 101’s brunch menu is to die for, and it’s even better when enjoyed on their rooftop patio. Think: poached eggs with chick pea purèe (the Uova con Ceci), a field mushroom and truffle omelette, or a spinach, sweet potato and goat cheese frittata with artichoke vinaigrette. If you’re more of a sweet tooth bruncher, they also have cocoa bowls, ricotta pancakes and a Nutella brioche with cornflakes and maple syrup.
The Beverley Hotel’s rooftop patio is small, quaint, and the perfect place to enjoy brunch among friends. With options like eggs Florentine, banana and pecan French toast, and Los Rancheros, you can’t go wrong. Add one of their signature cocktails like “Dreaming of Spring” or the “Northern Fizz” and you’ve got everything a good brunch is made of.
A retro spot on Bloor Street West, Pauper’s Pub has a delicious brunch menu, serving classics like eggs benedict and buttermilk pancakes, as well as brunch time twists like the chicken frittata and sunny side burger. Brunch is served from 10 am to 1 pm Saturdays and Sundays and from 11 am to 3 pm, a live DJ spins retro vinyl.
