The Best New Brunch Restaurants in Toronto, 2013
The best brunch restaurants that opened in Toronto during 2013 have little in common this year. Some are devoted to executing bacon and egg-centric staples with great finesse while others are breaking loose from tradition and introducing Persian, Cuban, and atypically dinner-ish fare (think burgers or steak tartare). If there is a commonality that brings these spots together, however, it's that Toronto's appetite for brunch (in its various forms) is as ravenous as ever.
Here are the best new brunch restaurants in Toronto for 2013.
Brunch plates at this sunny Latin diner on Roncesvalles are served with rice and beans, fried plantains, and slaw. The weekend menu offers pressed Cubano sandwiches, chorizo empanadas, and chimichurri steak and egg platters. Side orders of yuca frites deserve high praise too.
Lisa Marie is known for putting a creative twist on brunch staples. Big draws include hangover crushing masterpieces like an open-faced biscuit sandwich layered with cheese, a fried egg and sausage gravy. Then there's the novel maple syrup slathered double pork burger that substitutes flapjacks for buns.
This Persian kitchen on College Street is a prime spot to find that elusive mid-week brunch. The morning menu offers selections like eggs with fried halloumi or turmeric infused potatoes as well as steaming bowls of lamb infused porridge and rich stews. Skip the drip coffee here and opt instead for the fragrant chai.
