Things To Do in Toronto: Brunch Edition


Are you like me in this moment, making the most of our last summer weeks?
We decided to do a road trip to Toronto last weekend for 48 hours, and I have to say, I'm totally in love with this city.
I'm not sure what it is, maybe is the mix of an industrial and modern vibes and at the same time being able to find cute little shops a la Montreal style, simply melts my heart.

These two days were absolutely amazing. We did so many things, ate lots (literally) lots of good food that I have to split my posts into a series. I've been wanting to start a travel segment in my mind so this is such a perfect timing!

Hope you guys enjoy our travel tips and the little spots I love to discover not only in Montreal but erryyyy-where!


Colette Grand Cafe was on my bucket list for a while now, making our 336 miles of distance so worth it. This sophisticated spot has a restaurant, a bar, and a bakery area. I've been waiting to try their brunch for a while especially the Saturday a-la-carte menu.

I got my Toronto girlfriends and we had the perfect girly time enjoying some cocktails and yummy food on a lovely and sunny Saturday morning.

Colette's stunning and bright space with a french inspired decor will leave you nothing but breathless. It was all in the little details, the smell of fresh croissants, the perfect antique floor tiles, a dreamy sidewalk patio and hand-painted tiles making this spot the IT place for brunch time and obviously transporting you to a piece of Paris in the middle of Toronto.


Here's what we ordered this day:

Drinks
- Michelada
- Mimosa
- Bowl of Latte
- Americano

Food
- Eggs benedict (with a perfect hollandaise sauce)
- Lemon ricotta pancakes
- Avocado & salmon toast
- Colette breakfast
- Extra of maple glazed bacon, all the bacon, Colette!

I'm still dreaming about this salad, the dressing, and that hollandaise sauce.
These poached eggs and a summery michelada made my morning.
Yeah, I'm a michelada kinda girl. 
Of course, I had to do it. Of course!

Colette Grand Cafe
550 Wellington Street West, Toronto
Mon - Fri 11:30 am to close / Weekends 10am to close
Reservations: Totally recommended to make reservations. We didn't do it this day and we were lucky we found a spot, super busy on weekends for brunch.
Kids Friendly: Very friendly. You'll have enough room for your stroller and a private bathroom with changing tables for your little ones. The staff is also adorable and outgoing.
