Brunch spots in Toronto's Roncesvalles

Forget frying up eggs at home or pouring yourself yet another bowl of cereal, visit one of these awesome brunch spots in Toronto’s family-friendly Roncesvalles neighbourhood.

Easy Restaurant

1
1645 Queen St W, Toronto, ON M6R 1A9

Breakfast should be the most hassle-free meal of the day and here it truly is. There’s no fuss or complication, just a plate of hearty food that’ll sate any appetite. You can go for your morning favourites like eggs benedict or French toast, fill up more with all-day lunch items, or do a bit of both with their weekday breakfast special of three breakfast tacos. Parking is either on Roncesvalles (metered) or free on side streets.

Aris Place

2
229 Roncesvalles Ave, Toronto, ON M6R 2L6

Greasy spoons are one of the most beloved types of breakfast spots because the portions are large, the food is good and the prices are low. Aris Place does all this really well, combining retro decor with a hearty breakfast that’s cheap – and sometimes even cheaper if you visit before 11 a. m. The service is fast and friendly and there are TVs placed around the diner so you can listen to the morning news.

The Ace

3
231A Roncesvalles Ave, Toronto, ON M6R 2L6

This diner is one of the most popular in Roncesvalles for a number of reasons: it’s family-owned and doesn’t take long for customers to feel like part of the family; their weekend brunch starts at the reasonable hour of 9:30 and you can take home T-shirts, bags or pickled treats. Whatever you order from the brunch menu, it’s always done with a twist. You can get extras like black beans, grilled tomatoes, guacamole or tofu scramble instead of eggs.

Mitzi's Cafe Ltd

4
100 Sorauren Ave, Toronto, ON M6R 2E2

Breakfast here is colourful and tasty, as each dish looks like a little work of art to start your day. One thing you can be certain of is Mitzi’s doesn’t play by the rules. While you may be expecting eggs benedict to come with hollandaise sauce, they’ll go ahead and surprise you with lobster sauce on your poached egg instead. For those who don't eat meat or wheat, Mitzi’s has plenty of vegetarian and gluten-free options that are sure to satisfy.

The Butler's Pantry Inc

371 Roncesvalles Ave, Toronto, ON M6R 2M8
