We found this little gem located close to our hotel where we were staying in Toronto, and luckily we found it early on in our holiday, as we actually returned 3 times! This place was wonderful for breakfast, all the meals were absolutely delicious and between the four members of our party across three trips we sampled quite a few... More

Went to eggspectation before my girlfriend and I went to the ROM, and we had a delicious breakfast, service was great and fast. Very modern restaurant and very well priced considering you're in the heart of Toronto. I had a hard time deciding what to eat, a lot of interesting culinary creations but decided to go with the French toast... More

Layover in T.O. Decided to go downtown for the day. First stop was here. Delicious as always. Great service. Our waitress informed us of an Eggspectation restaurant in Dubai (we will be back there in March) and are so looking forward to eating there as well.

We went here the day after New Year's Day. The place was busy but the attendant at the front was really accommodating. We had 7 people but they seated us shortly after. The food was great, I had the eggstravaganza and the quantity for the price is amazing. They keep your coffee full and the server was friendly. All around... More

I've known this chain from Montreal and the choice and quality of the meals is as good! You cannot beat the wide selection of breakfast choices, from juices to egg dishes! Friendly staff and efficient service!

This is the 2nd Eggspectation I have visited, and I've decided I'm a big fan of this Canadian chain, despite a usual dislike for chains. They have a great selection of breakfast items and coffee drinks, which are available all week long. The food is plentiful and really good.

Went for a family breakfast while visiting the city. The prices were a little stiff for the food, but it was quite tasty. The only real disappointment was the indifferent service: neither particularly attentive (took a while to get a second cup of coffee) or friendly/welcoming. I would go again in a pinch, but I cannot say it comes near... More

We came here during our trip because it was close to the hotel we were staying at and it had pretty good reviews. There was a pretty long wait when we got there, but it is expected on a Sunday morning. The waitress was very polite and attentive. The food was a little expensive but was very good anyway. I...

Good and fast service. The portions were big. You will need a coffee after your meal. The location is great.

Have been here a few times and had consistent good service and food so far. Today was a busy weekend at brunch time but they took down our name and then sent us a text message when our table was ready (will use the No Wait app next time before we get there) so we could explore Nathan Philips square...

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
