    2nd visit, 2nd tip... Consistently good Cheesy French Toast! Try it! Genuinely LOVELY staff, even w/ a FULL house & 15min waiting time. *Waitress remembered us from our last visit 2 months ago! :)

    Head straight to SCHOOL for a messy hangover treat. Chicken and waffles, or chocolate pancakes are my favourites. Just make sure you're close to a couch for the inevitable nap afterwards.

    Awesome food, don't cheap out on anything (except maybe the cole slaw side but I nitpick!), personal and friendly service. Which is why you have to wait for it. Well worth the price and wait.

    Been here a couple of times. Yummy food! My fav has been the spinach & artichoke grilled cheese on sourdough. Fairly expensive, fairly loud, but attractive nevertheless. Like some ladies I know.

    Great brunch, go super hungry because portions are huge. Head there early or late as there's often a big waiting time for a table between 12-2

    The chicken and waffles were absolutely amazing! Can't go wrong by starting with the Chive biscuits.

    Step inside the classroom and enjoy a great breakfast. School is a themed restaurant and one of Toronto’s hottest spots for brunch. There’s usually a line so arrive early.

    Long a lunch spot for the design & communication types in the warehouses next door, School's converted garage does dinners too, & in summer the patio is a great brunch spot. Fun, global-inspired nosh.

    Love the school theme. They don't take reservations so make sure you're ready to wait a while!

    I don't know why people kept saying service was bad and slow, because I didn't experience any of that! Food is amazing, definitely won't go wrong with the cheesy french toast!

    Nice patio and good food! But the food came out more than half an hr later. Nothing fancy about the food the price could come down $2-3

    funky joint w/ a classroom feel. very chilled atmosphere takes you back to your school days. the kitchen sink (caramel slice) is oh so good!

    The staff get easily overwhelmed and wait times for tables and for food can be pretty hairy. If there's a line at the door for seats, go elsewhere; your experience will suffer when it's busy.

    Popular brunch items (like the overstuffed popover) tend to sell out during peak times. Finish off a meal with a moist and delicious Pumpkin Whoope Cookie.

    The reason this place is called School is because it's illegal to touch other people's children here.
