As October draws to a close and the unseasonably warm weather starts to take on a familiar autumn chill, you might find yourself longing for something more than a PSL – that’s Pumpkin Spiced Latte, for anyone living under a rock.
If you’re looking for a foodie challenge, Toronto has a ton to offer for the fall season – and you can’t miss out with brunch. We’ve rounded up four great brunch dishes to keep you in the autumn spirit!
When we think of autumn, we think of the local harvest. Lady Marmalade prides itself on using local produce, which makes it a great stop for fall. Try swapping the ham on their Crepe Croque Monsieur for roasted vegetables. Combined with their miso-scallion cream, poached eggs, spinach, and potato, it’s a can’t-miss dish!
Aunties and Uncles is a longstanding fixture in the Toronto food scene (they’ve been around since 1998!), so when they do brunch, they do it right! If you’re leaning towards the lunch side of brunch, their Grilled Brie sandwich will definitely hit the spot. It comes with pear chutney and walnuts – and if that doesn’t get you into the autumn mood, we don’t know what will.
Nothing says fall like pumpkins, and Emma’s Country Kitchen isn’t about to start messing with that tradition. Their rustic Fall Flapjacks are not to be missed – these fluffy pumpkin pancakes are stuffed with walnuts and toffee are topped off with maple syrup that will definitely satisfy your sweet tooth.
It’s a great season for pancakes… and if you’re not into pumpkin, School has a more mature and refined dish that will still scratch that itch for fall flavours. They offer Pecan & Basil Mascarpone Pancakes, which come with cinnamon, brown sugar, and maple syrup. Yes, please!
