    You can't miss with their brunch menu, go pork hash if it's your first visit. BYOB, but you grab drinks from the Empty Bottle too.

    The tomatoes on the grilled cheese are "cured" before between served with Wisconsin cheddar, smoked gouda, and provolone. The roasted flavor helps tie the sandwich with the tomato fennel soup.

    One of the best brunches I've had in the city. Inexpensive + BYOB. I had the poutine and it was phenomenal: small cheese curds and a spicy, orange, bacon gravy ladled over fries with two poached eggs!

    I enjoyed the sauce a lot, and liked that there was a lot of it. The english muffins were the thick, classic style and I wanted to the lather the sauce on every bite.

    From the breakfast “mashbrown” (a genius combination of mashed potatoes and hash browns) to the crisp and juicy half-chicken with roasted garlic for dinner, the new food is simple and satisfying. Read more

    The devious minds behind this brunch spot think they can throw perfect poached eggs on top of crispy poutine and call it breakfast? They could call it dessert and I’d still eat it any time of the day. Read more

    This sunny cafe boasts a great selection of comfort food entrees, plus dishes more refined than you'd expect at your usual late night eatery, such as beef cheeks and Peruvian bay scallops. Read more

    Sometimes you need a reminder of why brunch steeped in simplicity is a good thing. Their Eggs Duncan is a satisfying take on the classic benedict with a healthy serving of greens and two poached eggs. Read more

    This casually hip storefront offers plenty to chomp on, notably a delectable roast chicken, which may be partnered with Swiss chard and diced Yukon Golds or perhaps lentils and Brussels sprouts. Read more

    Just keep saying Poutine until they put it in front of you. There's a Bite blend of Dark Matter coffee that is delicious too.

    The pulled pork sandwich could be served at any bbq restaurant in the country. So well-spiced and flavorful. The pork hash is also a beautiful dish.

    BYOB and I've never eaten something here I didn't like. The bi bim bop is my favorite, and their biscuits with jam are amazing.

    Fish Friday is a treat. The stroganoff is a must for beef eaters. The lemon pound cake is the perfect ending.
