The Homeway

We recently participated in the Sporting Life 10K for Camp OOCH. After eating bagels and bananas on the lawn of Coronation Park, we shuffled our way back to the starting line. Seeing as we were rarely in the Mount Pleasant area, we quickly looked up brunch places and decided to try out the Homeway.

Konjiki Ramen

The first international location of Konjiki Ramen landed in Toronto in late 2017. As my friends and I are always up for a good bowl of ramen, we decided to pay a visit on the coldest day of the year in hopes there would be a shorter line.

Kung Fu Tea Shop 2.0

I was pretty sad when I found out Kung Fu Tea Shop closed their location on Dundas and University two years ago. It was my go-to spot for bubble tea when I was downtown and I would go out of my way to get my fix.

So I was pretty excited when they finally re-opened on Spadina, with a much bigger location and definitely with more foot traffic.

Little Pebbles

One of my favourite types of cake has to be the chiffon cake; so when QuirkyAesthetics suggested stopping by Little Pebbles for some cake, I readily agreed.

Located in Kensington Market, they have a sign outdoors advertising coffee and Japanese desserts that certainly captured the attention of many passer-bys.

Mildred’s Temple Kitchen

Mildred’s Temple Kitchen was definitely the top of my list when it came to brunch options – the endless stories I heard about their blueberry buttermilk pancakes were enough to entice me.

Saving Grace

We were in search of a brunch place to continue our monthly brunch sessions back when Pig was still in Toronto; we decided on Saving Grace without much expectation.

We headed there early and was surprised to see a line of about fifteen people already there; the restaurant opened and the small space filled up quickly.

Kupfert & Kim

Nothing is quite as beautiful as colourful food – especially when it’s naturally so. I love trying new combinations to get inspiration for my own creations. The pictures from featuring the bowls from Kupfert & Kim have long intrigued me, and I finally had the chance to pop in during lunch.
