If you’re in need of a strong cup of coffee to go with your weekend brunch, Niche Coffee & Tea Co. is the place to go. Serving freshly-ground espresso made from gourmet beans, this is a cozy hangout with a patio at the back, perfect for soaking up the morning rays. Their food options are centered around the typical brunch classics, such as poached eggs or gronola with yoghurt, and are generously portioned and served with a smile by their welcoming waiting staff.
One of the city’s most lively, cultural hotels, The Drake also has a great dining room that serves brunch to both guests and walk-ins every day. In keeping with the rest of the hotel, the décor is cool and creative and there is also a popular roof deck with outside tables. Their warm scones are famous in the neighborhood but other great choices are the smoked salmon benny and the ‘Nonny’s frittata’ with optional Nova Scotia lobster.
