The last time I reviewed b Espresso, I had lots of good things to say about their service and drinks. Nothing in that department has changed, thankfully, but they are now open Saturdays with a full brunch menu and it's so good it just begs to be Re-Reviewed.
The highlight of the meal was the above-pictured french toast with berries and syrup. Thick flavourful italian eggbread, stuffed with mascarpone cheese and covered in berries and served with syrup on the side (which conveniently also helps hold up the large slice of bread in this gorgeous presentation).
Across the table, poached eggs with asparagus, goat cheese, toast and a delicate leek(?) pattie.
Most dishes hovered above or below the $10 mark
Other dishes included egg classics like eggs benedetto (benedict, of course), frittata and various polenta spreads. See the full brunch menu here .
And naturally, we weren't about to leave without the beloved b Espresso cappucino and a few house biscotti on the side.
All in all, yes, Toronto has yet another amazing brunch destination... and I'll definitely be back here soon.
Update: Please note that this cafe no longer serves Illy coffee
