If your not in a hurry it is worth the wait. 1st there's a lineup outside to get in. Once your in the tables are all bunched up so your basically eating at the table beside you. Also, it is very busy and the waiters...More

Obsessed with this place. Has been one of my go to brunch spots for years and never disappoints. Best eggs benedict in the city by a long shot.
This restaurant was recommended to us by locals. We arrived at 10AM on a Thursday morning and were seated just in time to watch the line outside grow as we awaited our meal and enjoy the eclectic, artsy and lively, atmosphere. The hype was well-earned!...More
What a lovely review! Glad you love Nutella as much as we do!!! Hope to serve you again next time you're in town! ✌️🌟
Not going to lie. The line was about an hour to hour-and-a-half long! We waited, as I've done in New York City many times before, for the infamous brunch. The selection was great- good for those like me who can never choose between savory or...More

There was a long wait of about 45 minutes, but it was completely worth it. I ordered the mushroom eggs Benedict, and t was a life-changing experience. I've eaten eggs benny in many places, but these were far and above the best. I want to...More
Wow Kelly! What an awesome review! We are so so happy to have provided you with a life-altering dish! Making eggs benedict from scratch can be tricky, but after over twenty years of making our hollondaise fresh every day, our talented chefs have it mastered...More
Visited with friends on blog recommendation. Long queue but absolutely worth it. Staff member who came down queue was spot on with waiting time. Good coffee, amazing eggs Benedict (I had Montreal smoked meat one, one of my friends had crankcase one). My other friend...More
Robin! We are so glad to hear you enjoyed your experience in our dining room! We are especially glad you appreciated our long-standing top-secret breakfast potato recipe! Until next time ✌️🌟
Lavenue is a place where style trumps the food. It serves stylized diner food that is not gastronomical. We went, we stood, and we ate. I recommend the experience if you have the time. This is not a tranquil spot. You will be cheek and...More

We waited an hour in the freezing cold to eat here and every minute was worth it. I ate some of the best pancakes I have ever eaten in my life here. The hot chocolate was delicious as well. I was not disappointed in anything...More
Glad to hear the hot chocolate hit the spot after your wait; we're especially glad you stuck around and enjoyed your pancakes! Thanks so much for the recommendation :)
This is a must place to go! The food is awesome. It does get very busy, even during the week so lunch may be a better option. It is only about 3.5 km from downtown.
Thanks for giving us the thumbs up, Ken! We really appreciate you taking the time to write this up; hope to serve you again soon!
