The top 5 themed brunch in Toronto

Brunch is a sacred ritual in Toronto and we're blessed with a bevy of options to satisfy even the pickiest of eater. But sometimes, a plate filled with hand-poached free-run eggs and house-smoked bacon just doesn't cut it. If you're looking mix-up your brunch routine, consider introducing an new element to this weekly event.

Here are my picks for the top themed brunch in Toronto.

Bella? Did Ya Eat?
Klezmer and brunch go together like bagel and lox at Free Times Cafe. The Sunday brunch buffet features classic Ashkenazi Jewish cuisine - including blintzes, latkes and gefilte fish -as well as live Yiddish and/or klezmer music.

Black Metal Brunch
Wake yourself with the city's most hard-core morning meal. Head to Kensington Market in and bask in the glory of Graffiti Bar & Grill's Black Metal Brunch, which features food and drink specials as well as, of course, plenty of metal.

Psychic Brunch
Break up your eggs benny routine with some mysticism and clairvoyant activity. Find the Psychic Brunch at the Cranberries restaurant on the third Sunday of every month. Sceptics take note: 100 percents of the net proceeds from this monthly event go directly towards the Rainbow Association of Canadian Artists, a local non-profit.

Hip Hop Breakfast
Nest is a sprawling nightclub and music venue at College and Bathurst. But, on some mornings, it's transformed into a family-friendly brunch spot that showcases both local and international hip hop artists. Along with the music, there's an all-you-can-eat buffet of a.m. essentials.

Bluegrass Brunch
The Dakota Tavern at Dundas and Ossington serves up an all-you-can-eat feast of scrambled eggs, pancakes, potatoes, fruit and sausages for its weekly Bluegrass Brunch.
