Great list. Patria should be ranked a lot higher. Origin and Table 18 are wonderful as well

brunch reservations are my jam. Is there really any better feeling than the schadenfreude that comes with bypassing the hungover masses and gliding to your table? I live for that shit.

I was able to make a large group reservation for Sunday brunch at Karelia Kitchen at Bloor/Dufferin and it was absolutely delicious!

Try Aviv in the anne on Dupont St. They take small and large parties with free parking. The food is delicious and healthy.

Farmhouse Tavern is the best brunch spot in this city, hands down. I'm still drooling just thinking about our the eggs benedict and the steak and eggs. BEST. PLACE. EVER.

Doug's Public Kitchen is first rate, offers an organic, vegan, & gluten-free menu on Sundays, and takes reservations - definitely worth checking out!

It may not be considered "cool," but Hunters Landing at Cityplace takes reservations for lunch, and the food is delicious. Not cheap though.

George Carlin stated (and with much provided evidence) that the policy for
improving pass rates in our western Training
Program has been to consistently lower the pass mark year soon after year.
He humorously proposed (possibly correctly so, nevertheless) that this has
led to a steady decline on the average American's IQ score year after year.
As being a person who was privileged adequate to attend 1 of the
greatest schools in the UK, this answer worries me a
great deal.? Something epic should be accomplished.

i'll add (with bias) the a la Carte Bistro in the Gardiner Museum.

large groups (up to 25!), resos, prix-fixe, and you don't pay admission to the museum if you are just going to eat!

I got a reservation for 12 people for brunch at Mata in Parkdale. Great South American spot! My husband had the breakfast poutine, the breakfast of the champions! Best French Toast in town. Caipirinhas and the Caesar made with Cachaça were awesome!

Farmhouse (Junction), Parts and Labor and Mata (Parkdale). Those are the places to be!

Nothing north of Bloor... again! Hard to imagine there are zero great brunch spots near St. Clair, Eglinton, Lawrence... I think the city (by which I mean the Entire City of Toronto) is big enough that Best by Neighbourhood is now more relevant than any Top 10 list.

Time to update the template and reflect All Toronto, not just the South of Bloor base.

Farmhouse Tavern Is the WORST!!! They have 3 things on the menu and are super slow. They hustle you out the door as quickly as possible. And the food is boring! Totally bland and not good.
