Munch on Brunch

In Yorkville, stylish Carens Wine and Cheese Bar offers a well-considered menu including vanilla pancakes with bourbon pecan-butter syrup. Nearby, the venerable Bloor Street Diner has a hearty smorgasbord, plus a chocolate fountain perfect for dipping fresh fruit; and there are eggs galore at Over Easy. On the University of Toronto campus, the Gallery Grill at Hart House serves up contemporary dishes in a beautiful neo-gothic building. Live jazz accompanies your meal at the Distillery Historic District‘s rustic-chic Boiler House. Steps from the St. Lawrence Market, Le Papillon features Québécois fare, including a legendary French onion soup. The Sunday spread at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel’s Epic is augmented with fish, roast, soup and sandwich inspirations. Myriad egg preparations, waffles, fruit and more prove a successful recipe at Cora’s, winner of Where Toronto‘s 2007 MMM Award for Best Breakfast/Brunch. Savoury and sweet crepes are highlights at Art Square Café, and along cool College Street, and the baguettes, flaky pastries and quiche draw fanatical devotion at Leslieville’s Bonjour Brioche.
