Travelling on business makes you more inclined to deviate from your daily routine. And it’s easy to forget that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Apart from providing you with energy, it also restores glucose levels, which your brain needs to function. Going without breakfast can dramatically affect the quality of your work. So here’s a list of the best brunch spots in Toronto to keep you working at your best throughout the day!

The Stockyard Smokehouse on St. Claire West is known in Toronto for its mouthwatering burgers for a while now. But their burgers pale in comparison next to their brunch offering, chicken and waffles.

A newer brunch spot has opened up in the business capital of Canada and it is making a name for itself. Located in the heart of Koreatown, The White Brick Kitchen offers a more casual setting to start your day. The menu is largely American comfort food – french toast dripping in caramel sauce, homemade english muffins with sage sausage, the works!
The spot is run by two brothers, one graduated in hospitality and the other in culinary arts, and both are passionate about the food they serve.
While they might not offer the healthiest options to kickstart the day, don’t be afraid to indulge from time to time! Their breakfast poutine will leave you so much happier, their Huervo Racheritos will transport you to a warmer place, and their build-your-own eggs benedict are an accomplishment in and of themselves.
