    Really enjoyed brunch here. Huevos rancheros was delicious, and we got the citrus spiked French toast for the table, which was quite tasty. Get a reservation for weekends, it gets busy.

    Weekday brunch is a thing everyone should do! Cheap mimosas, large cocktail list. Espresso, tea, juices, etc. Chicken and waffles were to die for. Potatoes come covered in a ketchup sauce, fyi. Go!!

    One of Best service and food experiences I've had in two visits to Toronto. Pontine with pulled pork has the wow factor so be sure to share the large portion with someone...

    The house fries and salad that come with everything are really tasty! Eggs Benedict with tomato and avocado was just the right size - not over the top. $6 mimosas are a good deal. Will be back.

    I like this place as the kitchen serves until 1am! A rarity in the Tdot but certainly welcome. The fried chicken and waffles were very good.

    Their home fries are the best in the city. I could barely finish this PLT sandwich! Good food and service is excellent. Free wifi as well!

    Whilst the food is good, be warned that the coffee has a Cinnamon taste to it and the home fries are served coated in a ketchup sauce but it’s not listed anywhere

    Affordable, delicious brunch, anything on the menu that includes poached eggs is good! Their home fries are pretty excellent too: potato wedges dowsed in buffalo sauce. Mimosa's are weak though.

    Night menu burger and the Avocado chicken brie sandwich. Okanagan Pale Ale was only $4 per pint on Saturday night :-)

    The eggs florentine is great for brunch. They have great drink specials & foursquare deals. They're open very late too. Foodie options.

    A great brunch in a trendy area. The French Toast is delish and there are lots of great cocktails on their Wake Up Call menu.

    Got the vegetarian wrap with shrimp. Very tasty but a touch expensive for what it was. Lattes are gorgeous but on the smaller portion size. Really nice staff. WiFi is weak.

    Get anything with the home fries or make sure to order them as a side. And definitely get the grapefruit mimosa!

    If you need an appetizer for a meal, order the Epic 3 Cheese Nachos. Beware: even with two people, they may be difficult to finish!

    The dinners were okay, the service however was poor. Our waitress was slow barley ever checking in on us, and not really having a kind personality (or decent bedside manner as one would say).

    French toast is great. The home fries come with some sauce on them that's like buffalo sauce but not spicy. Wouldn't order again.

    Open late. Great food. Get there REALLY early for weekend brunch as the wait is rediculous and they don't take resos.

    Get their hashbrowns - drowning in red sauce, they are the best!Also order their banana and chocolate chip pancakes. They are baked not pan friend so they rise like cake. Mmmmmm Read more

    Pro tip: do not get the fried chicken here, super hard and salty, pasta is a better way to go
