I can see this is a hipster place, and has been featured in several publications in Toronto (it's how I found out about it after all), but not sure as to why there is a big wait to eat there. Food is excellent for sure, but despite the many varieties of Eggs Benedict (Mango one was the best!), and other... More

I came here solo recently for brunch/lunch. I luckily didn't have to wait but there was a large line-up the entire time I was there. I ordered the lemonade and the eggs benny with avocado, brie and bacon. It was excellent. I also quite enjoyed their hot sauce as well. Note- this place is cash only but there is a... More

We had read other reviews and I convinced my partner to try this out. Having vegan options on the menu helped. We had to wait about 40 minutes for a table and it's a very tight fit. Not sure what all the hype is for really. There are other similar places in Leslieville that don't have the same wait.

I came in with my family of 5 and was treated with disrespect. We asked for the large table and we're told once it was clear we could have it. Instead we got a table for 3 while the large table was broken up to seat 2 parties of 2. My children were hungry so we ordered their food first.... More

Love this little hole in the wall. I go here every weekend. Good small place for brunch. Eggs benny with avocado and Brie is excellent and so is the rest of the menu.

We arrived to find a pretty big lineup, which we expected. The wait was about half hour or so. We ordered the Huevos Rancherito, the chocolate raspberry bread pudding, the veggie and cheddar eggs Benny and coffee. The food was very good, worth the wait. However, the service could have been better. We had to ask to get a refill... More

NOTE: CASH ONLY Lady Marmalade reminds me of places I used to eat growing up in Seattle - funky, healthy, fun. The space is small - regulars know to carry cash, hunker down and be prepared to wait. There were five in our party, so we got a good look at the menu. My husband loved the Moroccan Scramble, and... More

Eating the mango salsa eggs benedict quickly made me forget the incredibly long wait time for a table. This is the best eggs benedict I've had in any Toronto brunch spot. I highly recommend their Bacon/Avocado/Brie Benny and Cheddar/Bacon/Mango Salsa Benny. Staff is very attentive. Only a few negatives to this place. The wait for a table can be quite... More

I queued outside here for almost an hour and a half Sunday for what was supposed to be an amazing breakfast, how disappointed was I the breakfast was just standard nothing special great coffee though. The staff were very very very attentive anything you wanted they got for you but sadly they didn't get me a good breakfast.

My husband and I used to like this place a lot and were frequent there. However, per our two recent visits, we feel like the quality of the food is not as it used to be for the dishes that we always order. I am not sure what has changed (management, chef?) or maybe our taste! Still, this is a... More

Staying in East End

Neighbourhood Profile
East End
The East End is an eclectic amalgamation of areas that team up to make this district one of the most multi-faceted and alluring. Home to Toronto's LGBT community hub, Gay Village is alive and pumping day or night with friendly bars, nightclubs, and cafes – its thumb is on the pulse of excitement. For a more relaxed day, the East End has the largest collection of restored Victorian homes, and its stately streets, tree-lined and bursting at the seams with affluence, often sport farmers markets and street artists, epitomized by the effusive St. Lawrence Market. One of the most gorgeous of Toronto's neighborhoods, it also straddles Lake Ontario in an area called The Beach, where you'll find folks cycling and strolling along the sandy shorelines, getting some sun or enjoying shopping, dining, and pub options. For some fabulous food, the vivacious personalities running the restaurants in the East End's Greektown is only equaled by the fun and authenticity of the street stalls and restaurants at its expansive Indian Bazaar. 'Something for everyone' has never been so accurate.
