5 cheap new brunch restaurants for students in Toronto

Brunch restaurants for students in Toronto cater to big appetites on small budgets. These places weren't selected so much for their close proximity to campus, but rather their affordable menus and generous portions.

Check out these new student-friendly brunch spots.

El Pocho
This antojitos bar in The Annex serves brunch on weekends that'll surely suit student budgets. Feed your hangover with plates of egg-topped breakfast fries and breakfast tacos for $10.

The Skyline Restaurant
Fill up on classic two egg plates with potatoes, toast and either bacon, peameal or avocado for $10 at Parkdale's refurbished old-school diner. Don't miss the ultra cheap cinnamon toast for $3, French toast for $9 and the entire lineup of short-order specialties.

Macho Radio Bar
CityPlace practically feels like a dorm, so it's no surprise that students flock to this fun Tex-Mex bar for brunch. Fill up on breakfast burritos ($9), cornbread French toast ($9) and huevos rancheros ($11).

Baddies
Head to this Aussie-style cafe near Lansdowne subway any day of the week but Sunday (it's closed). Pair great coffee with vanilla bean hotcakes ($10), avocado toast ($9) and brekky rolls ($8.50) topped with smoked bacon, sunny eggs and chimichurri.

Le Baratin
This casual and cozy French bistro is home to a menu of civilized morning fare. Dine on farรงous (spinach pancakes), Croque monsieur sandwiches, lumberjack omlettes and tartine. Most dishes are priced between $11 and $14.
