Brunch at Old School Restaurant in Toronto

Old School

Epic comfort food is what you’ll find at this school-themed diner on Dundas West.

Brunch is their main thing here, but they’ve recently opened up for dinner (with some of their brunch dishes on the dinner menu).

They also have a cool chalkboard filled with equations that makes for a perf Instagram photo backdrop.

Their Blueberry Hill Pancakes are absolutely magnificent, topped with brown sugar butter, blueberry compote, and bacon slices.

I did a whole video feature on their pancakes for Lonely Planet, which was a super fun experience!

This East End all-day brunch spot serves up globally-inspired dishes like their Huevos Rancheritos, Moroccan Scramble, and Braised Beef Benny.
