8 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!

And if you’re just lookin’ to have some great brunch, check out my post on the best Toronto brunch places.

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

Her Father’s Cider Bar + Kitchen

Her Father’s offers farm-to-table dishes using local ingredients, and their brunch is *chef’s kiss*.

Everything on their menu is so delicious, and their restaurant is absolutely adorable!

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.

LOCATION: 119 Harbord St, Toronto, ON

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.

Brunch at Light Cafe, Toronto

Light Cafe

Light Cafe is a Taiwanese-inspired cafe serving up all of the cuteness alongside amazing food.

They do their own contemporary spin on classic café bites, and their gourmet sandwiches are fantastic.

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!

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

They open up the rooftop patio during the summer months, which makes for v cute Instagram photos!

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

MARKED Restaurant

You’ll find MARKED right by Scotiabank Theatre, and their massive space is absolutely stunning.

Every corner of the restaurant is super Instagrammable, and you’ll be in heaven if you’re a sucker for pretty bathrooms.

They also have all-you-can-eat brunch, which is either $75 or $95 per person depending on whether you want bottomless bubbles.

There’s quite a variety of classic brunch dishes like the Manchego Biscuit Benedict alongside unique South American dishes like Ceviche!

Mushroom Arepa, Dates, and a mimosa (with pineapple prickly pear juice).

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.
