Mildred’s Temple Kitchen
The queen of brunch rules in Toronto and her name is Mildred. A reference to Mildred Pierce, the leading lady of the 1945 American drama of the same name, Mildred’s Temple Kitchen is one of the city’s most beloved brunch spots—in fact, many claim it was the restaurant that fueled Toronto’s love affair with brunch. Our only recommendation is you start with the buttermilk biscuits, which are served hot out of the oven with home-made preserves.
Price: a la carte

Choice picks on the menu include hearty classics like banana oatmeal pancakes, Challah French toast and breakfast tacos.

Bonjour Brioche
Torontonians from all over the city line up to dine at this French bistro nestled in Riverdale.

Dakota Tavern
This one is for all the honky-tonk moms out there. Bluegrass brunch at Dakota Tavern is somewhat of a spiritual experience—there are kids dancing everywhere, a limitless supply of scrambled eggs, freshly squeezed orange juice and real maple syrup, and a bluegrass band that plays under a twinkly disco ball. The all-you-can-eat brunch has an impressive following of devotees, so be prepared to wait in line unless you arrive right when the doors open at 10 a.m.
Price: $18 for adults, $7 for children

The Oxley
The Oxley has all the charm of a British den: tufted leather banquet seats, Victorian floral wallpaper, paintings of hunting scenes, antique lamps and of course, classic pub fare.
