Best restaurants in Toronto with reservations for brunch

There are plenty of spots to grab brunch in Toronto; from Parisian to Mexican there’s something for everyone’s taste. But brunch is popular, and there’s always a line, with no guarantee of a table (crying face emoji). Luckily, there are restaurants in Toronto offering reservations during weekend brunch service! Here are the top spots for brunch that accept reservations - no waiting for you! 

Farmhouse Tavern

1627 Dupont St, Toronto, ON M6P 3S8

Farm to table is the way to go for brunch! The chefs at Farmhouse Tavern only use local ingredients when creating their menu, which is displayed on their blackboard, changing daily. The décor is heavily influenced by rural Ontario to complete the farmhouse ambience.

Smith Restaurant

553 Church St, Toronto, ON M4Y 2E2

The restaurant, located on Church Street is sister restaurants with Wish and 7 West Café. The three-floors are always packed during the weekend brunch service that includes eggs Benedict, open-face smoked salmon, fried chicken sandwich, brisket hash and a bevy of baked goods.

Cluny Bistro and Boulangerie

35 Tank House Lane, Toronto, ON M5A 3C4

Another French spot on the list, Cluny’s bistro-style brunch has Parisian classics like omelettes, French toast, and tuna tartare nicoise, but it also offers some dishes that are inspired by other cuisines, like the pork banh mi Benedict, and the grilled chicken and Marrakesh carrot salad. The brunch is served weekends from 10:30 a.m. until 4 p.m.

Barque Smoke House

299 Roncesvalles Ave, Toronto, ON M6R 2M3

Some barbecue for brunch is always a good idea! Barque Smokehouse serves its infamous smoky barbecue with a brunch twist on the weekends. The popular smoked duck pancakes are always a good choice, but you’ll might want to try the brunch poutine, Barque Benedict with beef brisket, and the baby back ribs. Kids can join in too because Barque Smokehouse offers a kid’s menu, with pancakes, grilled cheese and scrambled eggs! The brunch is available all weekend from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

Buca Yorkville

53 Scollard, Toronto, ON M5R 1G1

An Italian brunch to remember, it’s no wonder this resto offers reservations! Split into multiple sections, the brunch menu includes a selection of wood-fire pizzas, savoury and sweet dishes, cold plates and a selection of freshly baked pastries. Buca also offers handcrafted cocktails and quite the selection of coffee.

El Catrin Destileria

18 Tank House Lane, Toronto, ON M5A 3C4

After you make your reservations, make sure to get yourself ready for a Mexican feast! The Mexican brunch includes both savoury and sweet stuff like the French toast Mexican style, with mango, whipped ancho chilie mascarpone and salsa roja, and the panqueques - Mezcal maple syrup, whipped cream and fresh fruit. Brunch is served Saturday and Sunday starting at 11 a.m.

Café Boulud

60 Yorkville Ave, Toronto, ON M4W 0A4

Run by world-class chef Daniel Boulud, Café Boulud is one of the city’s best French rotisseries. The brunch menu, served on Sundays, includes so many options; you’ll probably have to go through the menu before you head out. The menu is offered prix-fixe with an option of two courses or three courses. Some favourites include the Salade Nicoise, Croque Monsieur and the steak and eggs. Reservations are mandatory.


295 Adelaide St W, Toronto, ON M5V 0L4

This Italian eatery accepts reservations for its weekend brunch. Served from 10:30 a.m. until 3 p.m., it offers all the mainstays like pancakes and eggs Benny, but also throws in some Italian choices like pizza and sweetbreads. There’s also a pretty decent cocktail menu.
