Latin American brunch Toronto

The top 5 Latin American brunch in Toronto

Latin American brunch restaurants in Toronto will provide you with a hearty morning mid-day meal. Get your fill of steak and eggs with sides of rice and beans, or opt instead for filling cornbread, loaded scrambled egg dishes and fried plantains.

Here are my picks for the top places to grab a Latin American-style brunch in Toronto.

Mata Petisco Bar
This Brazilian restaurant in Parkdale offers a South American-style brunch on weekends featuring açai granola bowls and a paçoca (peanut candy) and Nutella rabanada, which is similar to French toast. Those who prefer savoury flavours can grab the picanha acebolada with top sirloin, onions, cassava frites and a fried egg.

Mi Tierra Restaurant
Colombian dishes are the focus at this St. Clair West restaurant that opens at noon on weekends. The menu boasts bandeja paisa, a platter of grilled beef with beans, sausage, maduro (fried plantain), chicharron and rice topped with a fried egg.

Lula Lounge
The Sunday brunch buffet at this Latin hub includes a selection of food that varies slightly from week to week. It's been known to include scrambled eggs, sausages, potatoes, stews, rice and beans, fresh fruits and desserts. Arrive early for dance lessons, which start at noon followed by live music.

La Cubana
This casual Cuban eatery has locations on Roncesvalles and on Ossington. Its brunch menu boasts chorizo empanadas with poached eggs and pickled raisins, chimichurri steak and eggs and pineapple glazed pork belly served with sunny-side up eggs.

El Arepazo
While not exactly brunch, arepas are well suited to a mid-day meal and on weekends, they're available starting at 11 a.m. at this Kensington Market eatery. Grab a savoury one or choose something sweeter, like mandocas, freshly fried plantain doughnuts served with shredded cheese and butter.
