Chillax Coffee

If you’re up for Asian fusion brunch, you’ll definitely want to pop into Chillax Coffee, located around the corner from Richmond Green.

I love the industrial vibes of the restaurant, and they even have a cool light bulb sign!

You’ll find a wide variety of brunch and lunch dishes at Chillax, with dishes like their Pork Belly Chicken Banh Mi, Thai Red Curry Clams Spaghetti, and Duck Breast Tonkotsu Ramen.

We typically go for their Eggs Benedicts (choose between smoked duck breast, chashu pork belly, smoked salmon, or Canadian bacon) or Chicken & Waffles (they’re super generous with the portions and the fried chicken is so juicy and flavourful!)

For drinks, they’ve got quite a few coffee and tea options, including their Hojicha Latte (probably one of my faves in the GTA) and Rosy Latte.

You can also find fun and delicious seasonal drinks like their Strawberry Shortcake Cappuccino and Peppermint Mocha!

The Hojicha Latte is also available iced.

I like that you can order directly through a QR code at your table, and they used to allow you to pay that way as well, but I think they’ve recently changed this!

Definitely make a reservation or add your name to the Yelp waitlist if you visit on the weekend for brunch, ’cause it gets super busy.

Afterwards, head over to Richmond Green for a post-brunch walk!
