Saving Grace on Dundas West is little known to young professionals who live and work in Toronto’s downtown core. But the short journey is well worth it for a great weekend brunch experience.
Saving Grace is a tiny space, we mean really tiny, but it creates a feeling of comfort. You’ll feel more like you’re in your best friend’s kitchen than a cramped restaurant. Just try to remember it’s not okay to open the fridge and drink OJ out of the carton.
Start off your brunch with a a delicious Americano, and then dive right into Saving Grace’s unique menu.
They do a great traditional breakfast with options like Monterey Jack cheese, black beans with onions and cilantro, and lovely potatoes. For those with a sweet tooth, the French Toast with caramelized bananas will satisfy your suggary cravings. But Saving Grace’s crowning culinary achievement is their Huevos Rancheros. Their unbelievable take on this classic Mexican breakfast dish will leave your mouth watering for more.
If you’d just like a light snack instead, try their freshly baked muffins which come in a ton of inventive varieties such as Lavender Pistachio and Hazelnut Pear.
And don’t forget to check out their chalk-board specials menu, which has the gambit of daily options.
Be prepared to wait in line, but it usually moves fast. Shouldn’t be more than about twenty minutes until you’re led to your seat my their friendly and accommodating staff.
After your stomach is stuffed, why not take an afternoon weekend stroll through Trinity-Bellwoods Park which is just around the corner. It’s a great way to enjoy a sunny afternoon, and walk off your brunch. Saving Grace Restaurant, 907 Dundas Street West, Toronto, 416-703-7368.
