It's the meal everyone looks forward to after an awesome night out. After indulging in that rare privilege of sleeping in, there's something wonderfully rewarding sauntering to meet friends for a weekend brunch. Brunch satisfies that delicious-greasy-goodness craving we often get the morning after. And with a “brunch trend” brewing amongst the restaurant scene, Torontonians are certainly rising to the occasion.
From greasy spoons to luxe hotels, Toronto is home to several popular brunch spots with something unique to offer. Whether you’re looking for traditional comfort food or want to elevate your brunch to something with a bit more style, it's always helpful to stay on top of what's new and hot in the city.
BlogTO - who really do stay on trend with what's happening in Toronto - recently created a list of the city's best new brunch spots and categorized them by neighbourhood. They write, "2016 was a killer year for brunch in Toronto. We’ve seen more creative and stunning options than ever over the past twelve months, from fry bread tacos to deep-fried breakfast sandwiches. Get out there and witness the loving marriage between breakfast and lunch performed so often and so well in this city."

While I, personally, have always loved the formica comfort of The Sunset Grill in the Beaches, I'm always open to trying something new! Although this particular list hasn't dug up any new brunch bistros in the Beaches, in nearby Leslieville, BlogTO praises newcomer Janie Jones: "Located on up-and-coming Gerrard East, Janie Jones is the place to go for a relaxed and funky reggae brunch. If you like your eggs with a little rock n’ roll on the side, this is the place to grab a vindaloo caesar in this Brits-on-holiday themed, black-and-white checkerboard ska/reggae spot. They do a deep-fried breakfast sandwich on house-made crumpets, as well as potatoes layered with poached eggs, smoked salmon, and horseradish cream."
Sounds good to us!!
