This small, homey Leslieville hot spot is a great place for breakfast, but on weekends try to arrive before 9:30am or you may have to deal with lines (they don't take reservations). Owners David and Natalia use fresh local ingredients as much as possible, and are best known for their "eggs benny" and tasty Mexican dishes. In fact, their recipe for Huevos Migas, including the tasty smashed black beans, has been featured in a cookbook spotlighting recipes from Toronto's best chefs. The building itself dates back to 1909, when it was A.G.T. Robinson Grocery Store. It has the original tin ceiling, lead glass windows, and currently sports church basement bazaar decor—nothing matches. Tuck into organic buckwheat crepes, multigrain porridge, or French toast (proceeds from the daily baked St. John's Bread go to the homeless). Popular: Brie, avocado, and bacon Eggs Benedict; and beet, apple, and ginger juice. Lunch could be wild Pacific salmon sandwich or Rockin’ Moroccan Stew. Cash only.
