I am looking for a place to eat breakfast this morning before we head to the IDS. The current issue of Where Toronto that I found in my hotel room featured a Best of Brunch article. Cool! Sadly, one suggestion that interested me, the Brassaii Bistro Lounge is closed for renovations (May 30th, 2010 Update: Brassaii reopened in March 2010 with a new decor, new menu and new chef). The Drake’s Corner Café seems like a good option that feels hip.

Brassaii is not closed!! A couple friends and I decided to check out Brassaii’s Brunch that we had been hearing so much about. We shared a few items from the brunch menu to get a taste for it and wow, was it ever good!! We shared the Banana pancakes with apple and cinnamon compote (so fluffy and moist), their eggs benedict with their hollandaise sauce (amazing!) and their “Croque Monsieur” grilled sandwich with ham and guyere cheese. If that doesn’t satisfy your appetite…. talk about options!! All of theses items were so well prepared, and came out in good time too! Add a few lemon creme pastries and some specialty Brassaii Mimosa’s and we just found our new weekly Brunch location!!

AmyB: When I wrote the post in January 2010, Brassaii was closed for renovations. They reopened in March 2010 with a new decor and the menu composed by their new chef. I am glad to know that you enjoy their food.
