Royal Mother’s Day Brunch at Casa Loma


Note: This brunch has changed for the worse, and I would not recommend this for 2015.
Treat your mama to a delectable brunch at Casa Loma! This splurge is truly worth the $51.00 (plus tax). You are greeted with a delicious mimosa, and things only go up from there! It was the best brunch I ever had, (second going to  this place. ) They had a breakfast, salad, pasta, carving and of course, dessert station. My favourite was the breakfast station, especially the scrambled eggs with goat cheese, basil and cherry tomato. After brunch, you get to wander the beautiful grounds and take some pictures! (admission is included) Don’t take my word for it, read the menu! It’s sure to impress your mom! Mine loved it.

Breakfast at Panagio’s



Panagio’s is a new restaurant that popped up in Scarborough. I’m always on the hunt for brunch near my hood, so I made sure to check it out. We arrive on a Saturday morning, and the place is pretty busy.
Panagio’s is a bright diner with a typical layout. They offers solid breakfast staples, like eggs benny, omelettes, and traditional breakfast ( bacon, toast, eggs.)

I choose the “The Banquet” omelette ($8.99) made from 4 eggs, filled with bacon, tomato, and cheddar cheese. It’s served with toast, home fries and fruit.

My boyfriend has the classic eggs benedict, ($10.99) also served with home fries, toast and fruit.
All in all it’s pretty good. The omelette is fresh and cheesy (important!) and the home fries are crispy. I prefer home fries that are more fry than potato, but because they were so crispy I enjoyed them. I like Panagio’s better than Cora’s, who I find overpriced and mediocre. I’ll be heading back here to try one of the breakfast scrambles next.

Panagio’s is at 1928 Mccowan Road, Toronto, ON M1S4K1. They are only open for breakfast and lunch.
