There’s no better way to kick off a beautiful weekend morning than by sitting down for brunch with your favourite people. The best part? You don’t even have to leave South Etobicoke to enjoy a generous serving of eggs benny! Below, we’re sharing our top 5 favourite spots to get your brunch on in South Etobicoke.
We really can’t say enough great things about this French-Mexican brunch spot in New Toronto. Run by a couple who immigrated from Canada over 10 years ago, partners Carlos and Gerardo have delivered the Lake Shore community with a brunch location befitting royalty. Inside you’ll find a cozy yet charming restaurant purposefully decorated with paintings from local artists, flowers and a french-mexican colour scheme fusion. After you take in the sights you’ll surely be left drooling from the countless delicious options you’ll find on their diverse menu. We’ve never had eggs benedict like they serve at Huevos, so you should consider those a must have. If you’re a fan of smoked salmon, try the Eggs Salmon with slices of pink smoked salmon on top of perfectly poached fresh eggs. Other favourite items include: the Breakfast Burrito, Mexican Omelette and Spinach & Goat Cheese Crepes.
After 11am, try a refreshing mimosa, savoury caesar or one of their countless other invigorating cocktails. This place doesn’t take reservations so be sure to arrive early to avoid waiting!
