aziza torontoAziza is a fresh addition to the College and Ossington strip. They offer an all day breakfast, and are also known for their soups and sandwiches - their chicken, avocado and brie sandwich is a popular choice!

We love Aziza! Delicious omelets, fresh baked bread and fruit? Yum! Tranquil atmosphere, too.

Aziza was a let down. I was excited for an all day breakfast at 1:30pm. Walked in and wasn't greeted at the door. Walked up to what appeared to be a cash counter and asked if I should just sit anywhere. It took the server some time to finish up her personal conversation with what appeared to be her friend before she got to me. I ordered a hot chocolate and eggs sunny side up with bacon. The menu said that it would come with a fruit salad, homefries and fresh toast. It took about 5 min for the hot chocolate and 20 min for food. Considering that I was the only person besides a few other people sipping coffee while reading books, this is a long time for eggs and hot chocolate. When the food came it was laughable. The toast was the stale ends of a loaf drenched in butter, my eggs came over easy but looked liked they didn't make the "flip" and were splattered everywhere, my "fruit salad" was actually a spinach salad with blueberries, orange wheel and a truck load of some blueberry yogurt from what it tasted like/looked like from the consistency. The potatoes smelt and tasted like cigarette smoke. The best thing on the plate was the bacon. I ate my bacon and finished my eggs and paid my bill in less time than it took to wait for my food. My bill was 14.01 and my server didn't even bother to ask how it was when I clearly didn't enjoy my meal. I paid, left and never will go back. This is something my 5 year old niece could make, and probably better.

Wow you probably took such a long time to write such a negative comment. Aziza is a great place for REAL homemade food. I really enjoy going there. Honestly you sound like a bitter person and honestly need to get a LIFE and stop leaving your negativity on hard working loving cafe.

Aziza is my favourite place for brunch. The omelettes are delicious, the bread is always fresh and warm and the homemade hot sauce is incredible. I love the jazz they play and the relaxing old world atmosphere.

I checked out this place for lunch with my brother a few days ago. We had both worked out at the Y nearby and were STARVING so we decided to try it and I was really pleased !

The choices were super healthy which was great considering that we had just spent the morning working out at the gym. We both tried the avocado, brie and chicken sandwiches with spinach and mandarin side salad. The food was great and the family that owns this place was really personable and friendly.

We were a little hesitant right off the bat as the first waitress waited quite awhile to come by with menus but it was definitely worth the wait and the prices were definitely reasonable for what what we got.

Check this place out if you get a chance! Try the juice bar if you get a chance as well. I decided against it at the time but my brother tried it and said it was great.

Very impressed with the service overall despite the little shaky start, will go back again!

Was on my way to Bestellan on Victoria day only to find it closed and checked out Aziza which happened to be open. Aziza TOTALLY outdid all expectation.

Are you tired of over-hyped, over-priced brunch spots with horrible service and lacklustre food and drink as an afterthought to the quality of their baristas' 19th century beards and wait-staff's ironic tattoos????

Fresh baked bread, Fresh Fruiit on the plate or in squeezed juices. Everything on the plate was top quality and exactly as it should be, nothing re-invented by some neophyte with amazing social networking skills. This place is unpretentious to a fault. I can't even see them surviving for long unless they get a waitress with moccasins & sleeves.

Above all praise is their Hot-Sauce. Most hot-sauces nail heat, but, lack flavour which is where this sauce rules, add it to anything while there and buy some on your way out ( $5.00 for a 500ml is a crazy deal).

The chef is a wonderful woman from Mozambique who brings classics to the table with wonderful presentation, attention to high quality ingredients and totally consistent execution.

Totally worth it!

Ate here on Oct 19,2014. Amazing food. Had the portugese omelette, it has tons of chorizo and cheese... very filling. My girlfriend had the salmon omelette which was also very good. The potatoes were perfectly seasoned.
"hot sauce" is more of a spread but is very very good with a solid kick. I had mine on the toast. Good coffee, solid service, price is right for the quality of the food. And most importantly friendly attentive service. Will be visiting again.

My new favorite restaurant on college.
