The top 10 brunch restaurants for drinks in Toronto

Brunch restaurants for drinks in Toronto go above and beyond your standard preparations of mimosas and Caesars. While the classics are fine and dandy, a number of destinations around the city are stepping up their game and offering more novel takes on these brunch favourites.

Here are my picks the top brunch restaurants for drinks in Toronto.

The Federal

Brunch is served daily 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at this Dundas West restaurant. From 11 a.m. on you can sip on brunch cocktails like Italian mimosas with orange or grapefruit juice and watermelon mint julips.

3 Speed

The menu at this Bloordale mainstay is always changing but brunch here usually means fried egg sandwiches or omelettes. Don't forget to wash it all down with their Caesars served in pint glasses.

Drake Commissary

Found in the Junction Triangle is this culinary hub for food and drink enthusiasts. Brunch runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends and has four classic brunch cocktails on offer including a tequila cilantro Caesar.

Here's another great Middle Eastern restaurant serving a delectable brunch with boozy drinks. Brunch is available on weekends 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and a must-try signature cocktail at the Annex restaurant is their Bitter Bubbie with gin, bitter bianco, vermouth and rhubarb.

The Wren

Make your way to this a saloon-style pub on Danforth East for a brunch menu filled with eggs Benny, hash and breakfast burritos. There's also their signature Wren Caesaer with smoky citrus infused vodka to wash it all down.

Lakeview Restaurant

If you're on the hunt for a great brunch and a deal on boozy morning drinks this Dundas West diner is your spot. $3 mimosas and $4 Caesars are on the menu daily.
