The Best New Brunch Restaurants in Toronto, 2009

Brunch in Toronto -- the fork in the road where breakfast meets lunch, where the hungry and/or hung-over turn to satiate their weekend cravings for fat, starch, and caffeine. A little bit of breakfast, with a dash of lunch -- who could ask for a more perfect culinary melding of the minds?

Everyone has their go-to, tested and true, good 'till the last drop Toronto brunch spot. But 2009 has seen some impressive new contenders enter the ring, new slingers of hash who are eager to prove their eggs the benniest, their homefries the tastiest and their pancakes the fluffiest in Toronto.

Some (like Mitzi's on College and The Hoof Cafe) are satellites of already popular restaurants, while the rest are new kids on the block who must prove they're worth their salt.

Here are the 8 best new brunch destinations that opened during 2009.

Lady Marmalade

Lady Marmalade

Even Patti LaBelle would approve of this popular Queen East brunch spot. Taking over the former Pulp Kitchen space this past July, Lady Marmalade offers up tasty and organic-where-possible standards like eggs benny, French toast, and yogurt parfaits plus creative originals like the Good Morning Poutine. There are lots of thoughtful vegetarian options (like the Kung Foo Organic Tofu Scramble) too. Expect lineups.
