The Lakeview is one of those magical places you might see in an indie movie, with worn, penny-tiled floors and yellow-tinged light that make this 24-hour diner feel like a dream. Whether you’re drunkenly craving brunch at three in the morning or just want a casual dinner at seven in the evening, The Lakeview is always open for business. This diner has seen its share of first dates and family suppers, and has been the beginning or end (or both!) of plenty a wild night since 1932. If nostalgic charm doesn’t hook you in, the mimosas and Caesars surely will.
You know it as well as we do: there’s nothing better than brunch. Catching up with the girlies? Brunch. Feeling rough from the night before? Brunch. Whatever brings you to the welcoming site of avocado and oozy egg yolks, brunch never disappoints.
And luckily for us all, the best brunch spots in Toronto deliver every. Single. Time. This city has everything from stacks of pancakes to peameal sandwiches (and yes, there’s mimosas). When you’re done experiencing the best of Toronto’s nightlife scene, the best brunch has you covered. Enjoy.
