Now that patio season has come to a bittersweet end, it’s time for Torontonians to turn their attention back to the city's other favourite obsession – brunching.
Sweet or savoury, with mimosas or black coffee, there are more ways to enjoy this mid-morning meal than there are stars in the sky (no, not really). But why choose one when you could have them all? Every Sunday, Mediterranean restaurant Ricarda’s offers an All You Can Eat Jazz Brunch that covers all of the breakfast and lunch bases.
Listen to live jazz music while you eat your way through the raw bar and salad and pasta bar. Try not to fill up on the delicious, freshly baked bread and pastries – there's still more to enjoy.
At the chef-run stations you can order eggs benedict, a custom-made omlette (with the option to add foie gras) or any other brunch standards of your choosing. Add bottomless mimomas to your meal and you've got a Sunday brunch you'll be leaping out of bed for.
The open concept kitchen allows you to interact with the chefs while you dine. If you have any food concerns, let them know – they have options to accommodate most dietary needs.
For those who let their little foodies tag along, there's even an adult-monitored play area with a bouncy castle and pint-size snacks.
