Where to Grab Brunch in Liberty VillageThere is no ritual more beloved by Torontonians than weekend brunch. No matter what you did the night before, brunch is a must. You could have been dancing into the wee hours of the morning or Netflixing and in bed by 10pm. Either way, you're probably still planning on getting up, braving the crowds, and getting those eggs and mimosas you've been dreaming of. The magic of brunch is multi-tiered. It's the fact that you get to sleep in before making your plans, it's the option of sweet or savoury, it's the conversation with friends or family, and let's not forget that it's acceptable to booze while you brunch. While the waits can often be long, the nosh tends to be worth it. Here are some of our favourite spots to grab brunch in Liberty Village.
Mildred's Temple - 85 Hanna Avenue, Suite 104

Not just a neighbourhood favourite, but a beloved brunch spot for people from all over. Mildred's incredibly tasty (and totally Instagrammable) menu helps explain this popularity. Have you seen beautifully stacked buttermilk pancakes drowning in lovely wild blueberry compote on your Instagram feed? Yep, those are from Mildred's. If sweet isn't your thing, there are lots of savoury options to enjoy like poached eggs on croissants or a brunch skillet too.
School - 70 Fraser Avenue
