10 Most Instagram-Worthy Toronto Brunch Spots

Like many basic Torontonians, hitting up new and cute Toronto brunch places around the city is one of my hobbies.

With so many adorable and Instagrammable brunch places opening up in Toronto all the time, how could you not?!

I’m guilty of looking brunch places up on Instagram beforehand to see if they’re photo-worthy, and I know I’m not the only one.

If people are constantly taking photos there, that probably means the food is actually good anyways. Right? Right. 💁

Okay, maybe not. But sometimes you just gotta do it for the ‘Gram, ya know?

Whether you’re into healthy chia seed pudding or hearty stacks of pancakes, there’s a perfect brunch spot in Toronto for everyone on this list.

These are my picks for some of the cutest and most Instagram-worthy Toronto brunch spots!

Her Father's Cider Bar and Kitchen in Toronto, Canada

Her Father’s Cider Bar + Kitchen

If farmhouse chic and local craft ciders are your thing, Her Father’s Cider Bar + Kitchen is your place.

Who says you can’t have ciders with your brunch?!

They use local ingredients in their farm-to-table dishes, and there’s nothing on their menu that isn’t delicious.

They have a super cute outdoor patio complete with a cool graffiti wall, and they give you cozy blankets if it’s chilly out.

I’ve come to Her Father’s for both brunch and dinner, and I’ve been amazed every single time.

Just another pretty pastel restaurant for all your aesthetic Instagram needs.

Wish Restaurant is one of the cutest little brunch spots in Toronto, and the food is pretty dang awesome.

The space itself is pretty small, but the cute patio makes up for it.

It turns into an enclosed and heated patio during the winter, so you can enjoy patio season everyday of the year!

I’ve also come for both brunch and dinner here, and the food is always delicious.

Brunch at Planta Restaurant in Toronto


Stop by Planta in Yorkville for plant-based brunch to satisfy all your vegan (and non-vegan) friends.

Just remind your non-vegan friends that they don’t offer dairy milk or cream for your coffee (lol).

My fave dishes at Planta are the Avocado Toast and Cauliflower Tots.

Oretta Restaurant in Toronto, Ontario


Another pretty Toronto brunch spot for my fellow pink lovers.

Oretta is an Italian restaurant that doesn’t really serve up traditional brunch, so come hungry for their hearty brunch dishes.

While I’m not too crazy about the food at Oretta, they’ve definitely got a gorgeous space worthy of your Instagram feed.

They even have a café attached to the restaurant if you’re looking for a quite bite or coffee instead!

Early Bird Coffee & Kitchen, Toronto

Early Bird Coffee & Kitchen

With minimal vibes and greenery all around, Early Bird on Queen West is the perfect brunch spot for your Instagram feed.

Not only is the café interior hella cute, but so is the secret pink patio out back.

Brunch at Old School Restaurant in Toronto

Old School

School meets diner vibes at this adorable brunch spot on Dundas West.

I’d say Old School is definitely up there on my list of the best brunch places in Toronto – the food here is absolutely incredible!

Their Blueberry Hill Pancakes are life – definitely some of the best pancakes I’ve ever had in Toronto.

From the brown sugar butter to the savoury slices of bacon, it’s just so damn good.

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

Oh, and the chalkboard filled with equations makes for a cute Instagram photo backdrop.

If you visit on the weekend, be sure to come early – the restaurant gets pretty packed.

LOCATION: 800 Dundas St. West, Toronto, ON

Baddies Cafe, Toronto

Baddies Toronto

This Aussie-inspired café serves up vegan, vegetarian, and carnivore-friendly options, and it’s more than just the food that’s pretty.

Literally every single corner of Baddies is Instagram-worthy!

If you’re super dedicated, you can probably get a week’s worth of Instagram content in just one visit alone.

Baddies is pretty far out of the downtown core, but it’s definitely worth the visit.
