Posted by Liora Ipsum / April 12, 2014

Easter Brunch TorontoEaster brunch in Toronto is kind of like the end of winter hibernation - and whether you're religious or not, we can all agree that the arrival of spring is worth celebrating. The long weekend marks that seasonal shift when patios are starting to look viable and leaving the house doesn't require such a concerted effort.

What better excuse could possibly exist to plan a get-together with family and friends? Even better, restaurants will be rolling out special menus and all you can eat buffets just for the occasion.

Here's a selection of restaurants that serve Easter brunch in Toronto for 2014.


Cafe Boulud
The posh spot in Yorkville is doing a three-course brunch menu for $65 per person (children aged 5 to 12 eat for $32). Expect menu options like black truffle deviled eggs and duck confit hash.

The Beverley Hotel
Reservations are being accepted now for this family-friendly Queen Street hotel restaurant helmed by chef Eric Wood. A $9 kid's menu will be offered alongside luxe brunch options like bone marrow canoes or lobster and grits.

The other restaurant at Toronto's Shangri-La Hotel will offer a three-course prix fixe menu this Easter for $59 per person. Start with choices like the granola yogurt parfait and move onto stuffed brioche french toast or classic eggs benedict.

Looking for a civilized spot to dine with the fam? The restaurant at the AGO is open for brunch from 11am to 3pm. Count on the usual roster of brunch standards like omelettes, huevos rancheros and buttermilk pancakes.

Those pancakes look delicious! Alas you did not tell me where to get them :(

The pancakes are from the wonderful Mildred's Temple Kitchen in Liberty Village which not only do not get aidentified in the photo caption, but they don't get a mention in the top 10.

No MARBEN? really????
they just relaunched their brunch program with dishes inspired by the chef's travels around the world
they only use ORGANIC free range eggs + make all of their own sausage/bacon in house (from happy healthy animals)

BlogTO, you used Mildred's Temple Kitchen's pancake photo but did not include them in your article. What a shame! They are open Easter Sunday and Monday for brunch. Thanks BillyO for pointing it out.
