Brunch on New Year’s Day is almost as hallowed a tradition as the sloppy drunkfest the night before. It allows for one to restore your electrolytes, get some coffee in your system, piece together what happened, and avoid having to cook for yourself. Sounds pretty great to us. To help you keep things simple, here are some of our favourite brunch places that’ll be serving up some relief on New Year’s Day.
Feel like a low key but tasty brunch? Thoroughbred, famous for their unique shared brunch lovingly referred to as “Low Tea”, will be serving up yummy brunch for super affordable prices. Expect the bubbly to be flowing so we recommend making reservations asap.
Located conveniently right in between Queen West and King West on Tecumseth, Beast will be running plates from their brunch menu for those in need of New Years Eve recovery. Their menu is as wild as their name would suggest, with mouth watering items like a take on poutine made with gnocchi, smoked trout eggs benedict, and something called “The Beastwitch.” We’ll let you find out what that is for yourself, however we think it sounds amazing for anybody suffering from a tad too much NYE fun. Brunch runs 10am to 3pm, first come first serve.
On New Years Day, Cafe Boulud at the Four Seasons Toronto will be offering a fantastic two or three course prix-fixe brunch for $45 per person or $53 per person. We recommend opting for their Croque Monsieur, Lemon Ricotta Hotcakes or their famous Rotisserie Chicken and Waffles. A meal fit for royalty on the first day of 2016 is a great way to start the year!
Colette Grand Cafe
Their Sunday brunch buffet will be offered on New Year’s Day with everything from lobster to omelettes, to charcuterie to baked goods like you’ve never seen before. Priced at $55 per person, this is a feast of a way to kick off 2016.
Um, screw that New Year’s resolution of never eating chocolate again. We suggest that you start 2016 as sweet as a sweet tooth can be — and MoRoCo Chocolat in Yorkville is just the place to do so. Their brunch menu will be served from 11am to 6pm however, space is limited so be sure to make those reservations, pronto!
Chef Susur Lee knows how to please and New Year’s Day brunch will be no different. A special menu created just to ring in the new year, why not hit this Wellington Street hotspot to indulge in some of Toronto’s best dim sum? This will be a no regret kinda meal guaranteed.
