Popular Toronto brunch spot closing for bigger things

Toronto has its fair share of excellent brunch spots. But one humble restaurant on St. Clair West has captured the city's attention (and bellies) with its comforting menu and assortment of donuts and freshly baked good.

On Sunday, July 3, however, Emma's Country Kitchen - the popular eatery at 1108 St. Clair Ave. W. - is shutting its doors for good. But don't worry because it's reopening nearby later this summer. It'll move into 810 St. Clair Ave - in the space currently home to La Creole.

Luckily, it'll be bigger than the original space so hopefully the brunch-time lineups won't be too long. But if they are, you can drink away your waiting-time woes because the new Emma's will be licensed. Bottoms up!
