20 of Toronto’s Best Brunches
We love it when Cabbagetown gets included in lists like these and our friends at NOW Magazine seem to like Little Shmiddy’s Hot Meat House‘s Chicken Schnitzel Double Down stating, “This behemoth of a sandwich, an unholy marriage of moist breaded chicken, cheddar, bacon and duck-fat-saturated grilled challah (plus a little sprinkling of cabbage slaw) appears on both the dinner menu and the brunch menu at this quirkily named spot. It remains an incredibly flavourful start to a day in Cabbagetown, even if you’ll probably want to go right back to bed after eating it.” Find the other must try brunch spots by clicking here.
