Fortunately we only had to wait about 15 minutes as we got there at 8:45 on cold Sat morning. We had great conversation with our line mates. The eggs Bennie are perfect the hollandaise is smooth and lemony. The eggs poached to perfection. The Apple slaw is a real treat. Mrs. C had the Belgian waffle and truly enjoyed it.... More

In Toronto on business with one day to sightsee and this came up as one of the top places for brunch. 10am was a good time to get there as the first round of people were finishing up so we only queued for 10 min. After we were seated the queue grew and they were reporting 45 minute waits. The... More

This was our second visit to this surprisingly highly rated breakfast place. I'm generally not in the habit of giving negative reviews (you can check) but this was an unpleasant experience. The instant we walked in, there was plenty of room but we were unceremoniously told to wait in the cold vestibule with the door wide open. Then we were... More

A really cute place to grab a delicious coffee and brunch. I personally get the Belgian waffles and highly recommend them, but truly everything here is great. I was once with a friend who had to ask the cook for a vegan option and they prepared a lovely meal for him. Friendly servers and very tasty food. Solid option for... More

The light airy Belgian waffles are a must!! (especially with berries and cream on the side!). Breakfasts at Le Petit Dejeuner are worth the wait! we had to line up for about 45 minutes for a table for two but it was well worth it! The service in this tiny diner is outstanding. Everyone was super friendly and attentive. Cannot... More

We adored this restaurant, we went for brunch on a Saturday and lucked out - the place is pretty small (part of the charm!) with to die for homemade and from scratch breakfast foods-and yes real espresso and coffee drinks. We arrived around 10am and waited a few minutes for a table for 2 - by the time we left... More

Terrible food, terrible service , I also ordered waffle because I thought it's their signature dish!!! My 7 years old cousin can make better omelette ! Don't waste your time, if you want brunch, even Starbucks or eggo waffle will be better! Biggest mistake of my trip to Toronto

Really nice place and good Sunday brunch. Very friendly staff that helps you to pick the right dish. Light and delicious waffles. Restrooms would need a renovation.

My wife and I have eaten here twice on different trips to Toronto. Especially on weekends the wait is long, but they have amazing breakfast food including the authentic Belgian waffles as well as excellent dishes using poached eggs and hollandaise. I had the spinach and brie omelet on our last visit and it was very good. Creative dishes that... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
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.
