Paying homage to 21st century American cuisine, enjoy what is possibly Toronto’s best brunch view on Saturdays and Sundays at Aera. Serving a menu of elevated brunch favourites sprinkled with artfully assembled sushi house staples, there is no better setting to bask in the glory of a late-morning meal. Raise a glass to the weekend with a selection of luxuriously crafted cocktails, enjoy some of the city’s best Steak and Eggs, or dive into a plate of Griddled Cornbread with golden maple syrup — the ultimate steakhouse side, only brunchified. Take flight to the 38th floor of The Well and elevate your weekend with brunch above the clouds.
Near the hub of Toronto Eaton Centre’s shopping action, you’ll find Leña, serving up a South American-inspired brunch menu with Spanish and Italian influences. Exclusively available on Saturdays, try the Breakfast Empanadas for something savoury or French Toast with a dulce de leche twist if you’re looking for something on the sweet side. Need to fuel up for a busy day of shopping at the Eaton Centre? The Full Gaucho Breakfast is sure to do the trick! For a little something extra, indulge in an Aperol spritz, espresso martini or bottle of bubbly, because… brunch!
Bayview Village-goers can say Buongiorno to brunch at Parcheggio, now serving a delicious spread of Italian-inspired dishes. The name, which translates to “parking lot” in Italian, refers to the restaurant’s location in a tongue-in-cheek way, echoing its playful and inviting atmosphere. Visit for brunch on Saturdays and Sundays and explore its menu of weekend favourites with a twist including Tomato & Pepper Baked Eggs, Italian-style Scotch Egg, Milanese Toast and Eggs Benedetto. Linger in true Italian fashion with a Mimosa, Caesar or Espresso Martini in hand and cheers to comforting plates cooked from the heart. Buon appetito!

We think that deserves a oui, oui! Bon appétit!
On the bustling corner of King and John in the TIFF Bell Lightbox, Canteen’s bright and airy dining room is ideal for late morning and early afternoon eats in the heart of the Entertainment District.
