5 restaurants in Toronto for Japanese brunch

Japanese brunch in Toronto is a great way to switch things up on the weekend. Order regular pancakes with an Asian twist, replace homefries with korokke, and level up your coffee with a matcha latte instead.

Here's where to go for Japanese brunch in Toronto. 

Sakawa Coffee

This joint on the Danforth does more than just beverages. The cafe has a whole Japanese breakfast menu featuring items like rice balls, grilled mackerel and hotcakes. 

Eative Film Cafe

This Kensington Market cafe makes a Tokyo Omelette with roasted seaweed, grilled onion, mushroom, cheddar cheese, sundried tomato and two onigiris. They also serve a number of other Japanese eats like edamame and gyoza. 

Fuwa Fuwa

The name of this Toronto restaurant with multiple locations across the GTA means "fluffy fluffy" in Japanese. Souffle pancakes here come in flavours like tiramisu or matcha cream, and they make for the perfect brunch meal.
