Melanie Filipp offers where to brunch: GTA edition

I have been on something of a brunch kick of late (but really, who doesn’t love brunch)? There are so many fantastic options throughout the GTA that it can be hard to keep up.

I do, however, have some favourites I keep coming back to, each one a little bit different in atmosphere and menu selection. Read about them below and get inspired to treat your senses for your next brunch adventure.

Toronto

Lola’s Kitchen is one of my favourite spots for a casual meal in the city. They offer lots of fresh and tasty fare with plenty of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options, and their weekend brunch does not disappoint. I’m partial to the breakfast kale bowl (hold the chorizo), but they offer a plethora of other delicious options, from eggs benny to crepes and more.

Oakville (with a second location in Etobicoke)

Stoney’s Bread Company or Stoney’s, as it’s more affectionately known by regulars, offers delicious cuisine, from eggs Florentine to their signature coastal mushroom omelette and the best French toast ever (with cinnamon spice butter, no less). So good, I can (almost) taste it right now.

Burlington

Spencer’s at the Waterfront offers a brunch experience like no other. Located, as its name states, on the shores of Lake Ontario, Spencer’s is housed in a contemporary building that offers gorgeous panoramic lake views. The all-you-can-eat Champagne Sunday brunch is also a feast for the senses. Dine on oysters, cedar-plank salmon, waffles and farm-table-dishes prepared on the spot for a truly wonderful experience. The dessert station with bread pudding, fresh fruit and a chocolate waterfall (to name but a few options) is also rather incredible. Tip: don’t forget to order a mimosa (or two).  

Next spot on my list to try?

The dim sum brunch at Luckee by Susur Lee for a non-traditional brunch experience. I recently dined at Luckee for dinner and was so impressed by the menu selection (the black cod was phenomenal) and cannot wait to sample the brunch menu soon, which includes every kind of steamed dumpling imaginable and lots of vegetarian options (the crispy taro and turnip cake sounds divine).

Until next time,

Melanie
