Brunch at Old School Restaurant in Toronto

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.

One of Toronto’s most beloved brunch restaurants, you’ll find Mildred’s in the heart of Liberty Village.

The restaurant itself is also gorgeous, with tons of plants and industrial lights hanging from the ceiling.

With natural light pouring in through the windows and a ceiling filled with greenery, it’s like you’re stepping into a tropical paradise even in the dead of winter.

There’s also a neon sign that lights up the back of the restaurant, for my fellow neon sign fanatics!

Breakfast poutines at OEB Breakfast Co. in Toronto's Liberty Village

OEB Breakfast Co.

This Calgary-based breakfast chain opened their very first Ontario location in Toronto’s Liberty Village, and their brunch is absolutely incredible.

I love that they’ve got an extensive menu filled with unique takes on classic brunch dishes, like their Canadian Lobster & Shrimp Crêpe, Gnocchi Breakfast Carbonara, and Confit de Canard Poutine.

Their duck fat-fried herb potatoes are *chef’s kiss*.

You can get an inside look of OEB’s Toronto location in my TikTok video!

Adam and I actually visited OEB’s Calgary brunch spot for the first time a couple of years ago, and their Toronto location is just as great.

All-you-can-eat South American brunch at MARKED Restaurant in Toronto

MARKED Restaurant

If you’re feelin’ super hungry, why not go for all-you-can-eat brunch at MARKED?

It’s $75 per person without bottomless bubbles and $95 per person with bottomless bubbles, and it’s definitely worth the seemingly steep prices.

The portions are also quite large for small plates, and Adam and I were both full after trying only 9 out of the 19 dishes!

I’d definitely come with a group so you can make the most out of your visit and try everything on the menu.

Our top fave dishes were definitely the French Toast, Salmon Tostada, and Pork Belly Bacon!

They’re only open for dinner during the week, but you can enjoy their all-inclusive brunch on weekends from 11 AM to 3:30 PM.

Even the interior of the massive restaurant is absolutely stunning, and you’ll be in heaven if you’re a sucker for pretty bathrooms.
