I’ve been living in Toronto full-time for almost three months now, and I’ve been making my way through its food scene. Admittedly, it’s been a little disappointing, but I’ve found a few spots that have become my go-to’s: Cluny for brunch, Maker for pizza, Miku for sushi (it’s also one of my go-to spots in Vancouver), Portland Variety for chocolate chip cookies, Forno Cultura for amaretti cookies and San Remo for the doughiest donuts. I’m still on the hunt for a good salsa roja and Sunday sugo.
Recently though, I found another place to add to my Toronto list: Le Petit Dejeuner. I joined a couple good friends for brunch there a few weeks ago, and fell in love with their light-as-air Brussels waffles and eggs Florentine. We waited in line for probably about forty minutes, and it took me back to rainy morning line-ups at Vancouver’s Café Medina. I don’t typically go for gluten-free options, but there was no way I was going to settle for an English muffin when I could replace it with a potato rosti. So that’s what I did, and with the perfect Hollandaise, it made for some on point eggs Florentine.
