Our Top 5 Favourite Brunch Spots You Need To Hit This Spring

To help you decide which hot restaurant to check out next, we’ve rounded up our top 5 favourite brunch spots in Toronto right now.

Toronto’s food scene is diverse and dynamic and with so many options to choose from, making a decision can be tough. To help you decide which hot restaurant to check out next, we’ve rounded up our top 5 favourite brunch spots in Toronto right now.

Mildred’s Temple Kitchen

One of the reasons we’ve always loved this restaurant is Mrs Biederhof’s Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes. The brunch is exceptional and pairs well with the Classic Canadian Caesar made using Walter Craft Caesar Mix! Proudly made in Canada, Walter’s spicy mix complements the decadent pancakes exceptionally well.

SD notes:

  • Located in the heart of the Distillery District
  • Lots of paid parking available
  • Huge selection – this is not your standard eggs and bacon brunch
  • Walter Caesar mix used in Caesars
  • Friendly staff
  • Buck a shuck Thursdays 5-7pm

Wish Restaurant

Wish is a long time favourite of ours for two specific menu items. One – the incredibly decadent challah French toast with blueberries and caramelized bananas, and two – the granola yogurt. This is not your standard healthy parfait. The Greek yogurt is mixed with chocolate granola and oats, pretzel, and olive oil. A perfect sweet and savoury option.

SD Notes:

  • Located just south of Yorkville – walk score 10
  • Small restaurant with limited seating

Carbon Bar

We recently visited this spot when they started serving brunch. Our top pics from the menu were definitely the chicken and waffles with citrus crema and chili-honey-garlic sauce. Our second pick, the smoked brisket benny is unlike any benny we have had, topped with the traditional hollandaise sauce.

SD Notes:

  • Lots of paid parking available
  • Brunch offered weekends 1030am-230pm
  • Large restaurant with tons of seating
  • Easily accessible by transit

Smith Restaurant 

We love this place for a variety of reasons, but one of the main ones is its patio. It’s so hard to find patios in Toronto that are both sunny and provide shade. This is truly the perfect patio in our opinion. Our favourite dishes here are the Ballina benedict with smoked salmon and the Smith Quiche. We can’t describe it. You need to taste it!

SD Notes:

  • Available on Uber Eats
  • Weekends only – 9am-4pm
  • Owned by the same people as Wish above
  • Great patio

Cacao 70 

We usually visit Cacao 70 for the decadent chocolate desserts but their brunch items are savoury and delicious as well! The best part about buying a brunch? Each one is served with bread, a fruit plate, and a small chocolate fondue.

SD Notes:

  • 4 Toronto locations
  • Served 10am-4pm
  • Great for special occasions
