Brunch at Farmhouse Tavern

Farmhouse Tavern is easily one of the most decadent, and delicious brunch spots in Toronto. Located on Dupont Street in the Junction Triangle, Farmhouse Tavern is where country farmhouse life meets the Toronto city hipster.  It’s a charming spot bursting with country character and serving local farm-driven food, Ontario craft beer and Ontario VQA wines.

My favourite thing about Farmhouse Tavern is arriving and seeing what mugs we get at our table! The restaurant uses a collection of random coffee mugs from anywhere and everywhere. The first time I visited, I drank coffee from a mug with a cat on it, which truly made my day. The second time, I had a Canada’s Wonderland mug. It’s the little things that make a place special, am I right?!

The menu is written on a blackboard. It boasts classic selections like Eggs Benedict with kale, gravlax or bacon to more unique offerings like Strawberry Bread Pudding with an optional additional foie gras topping.

All the dishes we’ve had here are rich, and scrumptiously good! You’re going to want to visit and see for yourself. If you find yourself torn between all the choices – go for the Eggs Benedict. It’s my favourite!

Farmhouse Tavern has great brunch cocktails. Mimosa’s are of course on the menu, but Farmhouse also makes a great twist on the classic Caesar! They make a Smoked Caesar with tequila, instead of vodka, and top it with a thin slice of cucumber and a smoked oyster. It’s tasty, and different!

A visit to Farmhouse Tavern is a bit of a splurge – the great eats and country character doesn’t come cheap, but it’s worth it for a great brunch experience! They take reservations for brunch. I highly recommend you make one in advance!

Kiddie corner to Farmhouse Tavern is their sister restaurant called the Farmer’s Daughter, who also serve brunch. From what I gather, they serve a more seafood-centric menu, but it’s on the ‘to try’ list so I can know for certain!
