Brunch on Sunday’s are pretty big deal in North America. I guess another excuse to enjoy your favourite cocktail, mimosa’s and ofcourse to GOSSIP.
Portland Variety is one of the famous hotspot to be seen at in Toronto.
Ofcourse I wore once again another stolen shirt from the beau. I dressed in a simple shorts and top so i get to walk around King west after brunch saving Yorkville for another time.
You can either sit outside with your friends or inside, gotta maximize the remaining patio days before we succumb hibernating inside.
Portland Variety has two parts, they have also a coffee shop where you can grab anything to go, Their coffee and chocolate chip cookie is a must buy! you’ll turn into cookie monster like me.
I made the reservation ahead of time, because of that I was given a really nice seat by the window near the Bar.
The smell of food makes me so giddy and excited to eat .
This was my view from my seat. look at those pretty white and blue porcelains.
Their Brunch menu is pretty straight forward and surely hits the spot.
My chap ordered the Fried Egg Bravas which was so good , the potatoes were crispy and the flavouring has a hint of bacon!
I got the Eggs Benedict and ham on the side since I don’t eat pork. I really love that it’s on a croissant and not a usual english muffin most restaurant serves, it gives its butter flavour melting sensation in your mouth. It’s also paired with fresh fruits than the usual fries, making it guilt free!
Speaking of guilt-free, this pancake is not that bad either (as long as you do your regular yoga and cardio you’re good to go) Lemon Ricotta pancakes with bluberry compote and did I mention the cream cheese mousse? I had this for dessert! oopps..
It was worth it.
The staff are very friendly and they always make sure we are satisfied with the food. Excellent service if that’s what you’re looking for. I think it’s very important to make you at ease and to truly enjoy your meal.
Just a great way to start my week right! Let me know how you like Sunday’s to be spent and what are your favourite brunch place to go?
Will I see you next Sunday ?
