Liberty Village’s locale for brunch has three varieties of French toast. The Krispy Krunchy is a crusted revelation with fruity compote and brown sugar butter. Another challah version is topped with dulce de leche. The third has bacon, enough said.

This 22-year-old Little Italy favourite keeps it simple with a Cinnamon French toast served with fruit and real maple syrup. Unlike many decked out counterparts across the city, the servings here run around $9 per plate, pre-bacon.

French toast is non-negotiable at this cozy Dundas West spot. Either get your bread with caramelized bananas, or have your slices stuffed with roasted onion, apples, and gruyere. Options to add bacon or sausages to anything, for extra flavour.

The Upper Beaches brunch spot expanded with a King East outpost, but you can only get their French toast at the original location. Orders come with cinnamon-dusted pork belly, bacon, blueberry compote and syrup.

Pecan and cornflake-crusted French toast from this cheery restaurant are not to be missed. Head to Bayview near Manor Road for Brioche bread with a crispy outer shell, served with fruit and in-house whipped cream.

This bakery in Bloor West Village is the go-to for baguette and quiche, but the pain perdu is equally delicious. It’s made with house brioche and vanilla. Douse this fruity dish with maple syrup. Add blueberry compote and Chantilly cream for extra.
