Mother’s Day is coming up next weekend, which means it’s the perfect opportunity to take mom out for Brunch.
There are a ton of amazing spots all over the city, but to make it a little easier, we’ve narrowed down the list to some of the best on the west side:
Cafe Cancan is a beautiful French bistro on Harbord that’s affiliated with the Italian-by-way-of-New-Jersey Piano Piano across the street. It’s full of colourful pastels, florals and flamingos, along with cute little details like patterned duck decorations that open up to double as a container for presenting the bill.
On the quiet, tree-lined Sorauren Avenue, just north of Queen sits Mitzi’s, a hugely popular cafe and brunch spot. The best thing about Mitzi’s is the spiced potatoes. It’s one of the few items that shows up regularly on their menu, scrawled in chalk to reflect that it changes on a daily basis.
School is a bakery, cafe, bar and restaurant that consistently serves one of the best brunches in the city. This includes their legendary and over-the-top takes on French toast, pancakes, and even breakfast poutine. The interior is homey yet industrial with lots of brick and black. Apples on every table and Saved by the Bell on the TV are in keeping with the “school” theme.
This Italian restaurant in the entertainment district offers a Sunday brunch menu that encompasses pastries, pizza and salads along with traditional morning fare like 2-eggs breakfast, baked eggs and pepperonata benedicts.
La Palma is a sleek venture from Chef Craig Harding and designer Alexandra Hutchison of Campagnolo. A cafe and Italian takeaway spot during the day that turns into an elegant restaurant with sexy cocktails at night and also serves breakfast and brunch, La Palma’s intention is to bring California cool to Toronto.
Which brunch spot would you take mom to?!
