I lived several years in Toronto and it's one of the best brunch of the city. Long wait during the weekend but it's totally worth it. The pancakes are amazing

The atmosphere is nice, but prepare to wait a while to be seated, and then another long while to be served your food. This is not necessarily a bad thing, though. The quality is good; thus the wait reassuring. I really enjoyed their breakfast burger. Somehow seeing a combination of the words "breakfast" and "burger" made me feel a little... More

This popular breakfast hangout, serves great eggs and everything else. They don't reserve tables and there's always a line up.

Each time I've been to Aunties and Uncles, there has been a 10-15 minute wait for a table. The first time I went, I was with friends who assured me it'd be worth the wait and I'm glad I trusted them because they were right. It's now my favourite breakfast spot, but I try not to go too often so... More

Great breakfast in a cute little restaurant. If you've forgotten to bring cash there's a cash machine nearby. We walked back downtown through Kensington, a nice walk with vintage shops and more.

This is the spot for breakfast. They serve so many excellent dishes, from their pancakes, to their regular breakfast meals served with warm and heavily buttered Challah bread. Soo good! But get up early, this place always has a line and is busy as long as they are open. Make sure you have your cash ready.

We visited Aunties and Uncles for breakfast as I specifically wanted pancakes. It was very busy so we had to wait about 15 minutes but it was worth it. The décor is fun and there are lots of pictures and knick-knacks to look at. The best thing of all were the oatmeal and banana pancakes. Absolutely delicious. Great portions.

The place looked like a run-down house but it really was'nt. The breakfast was great. I forgot what I ordered but it was the breakfast of the day - an omelette with goat cheese and tasty vegetables and other concoctions in it. Would surely come back when I get to return to Toronto.

Visited this place on our first morning in Toronto, it was great way to start the trip. Food was amazing, I had the pancakes which I highly recommend and my mum had eggs+bacon which was also lovely. Waitress really made the trip, she could not of been more helpful or welcoming to both the cafe and Toronto.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
