ISO West End Brunch Spot for 40?

Yes, I'm treating. And kwfoodie is right - we'll travel as far WEST as the Eastern EDGE of Mississauga.

Thanks for the suggestions so far.

ISO West End Brunch Spot for 40?

Please share any recommendations you may have for a location that can accommodate 40 for brunch. Looking for a 11:00 am reservation on a Sunday in the West end. I could go as far as East Mississauga.

We need to feed our large family after my daughter's Christening in the roncesvalles area.

Good Mexican Food in Toronto?

Tecate is one of the worst Mexican beers and is available at almost every Mexican resto i have been to in T.O. I am more impressed if they have a decent beer like Negro Modelo available.

Disgraceland - Eggs Benny DISAPOINTMENT?

Thanks jayseca, i will try Yasi's place. I noticed it the other day when I was walking the neighborhood.

Disgraceland - Eggs Benny DISAPOINTMENT?

I moved into a new Neighborhood (Bloor and Landsdowne) and was craving eggs benny yesterday. Nothing fancy, just expecting some poached eggs and hollandaise sauce on whatever meats, fish or bread was being served. Starving artist - packed, Bloordale Pantry - packed (we didn't feel like waiting).
We continued East on Bloor and decided to give Disgraceland a try. They're brunch menu had paoched eggs and hollandiase sauce on half the menu so I got excited. We ordered the Heart Attack Benny - poached eggs, hollandaise, bacon, pemeal, cheese on a fried tomatoe and the Hangover Helper - Fries, gravy, curds with 2 poached eggs and hollandiase.

All of our eggs came hard paoched and the hollandaise was barely noticeable on both dishes. I wasn't expecting the meal to blow me away, but considering we were the only table waiting for food i expceted the paoched eggs not to be over cooked. There is nothing that ruins and eggs benny for me more than overcooked eggs.

Overcooked poached eggs happens to me quite a bit. Is it unreasonable to expect the yolks to be runny? Has onyone sent back a benny?

Any suggestions for eggs benny in my neighborhood?

What's your most disappointing dining experience?

Fat Belgian
Was there in the spring and decided not to order mussels like everyone else in my party. I though I would try a seasonal special - duck breast on a bead of risotto. The duck was over cooked with absolutely no pink to the meat and was served cold. The risotto was just plain bad.
Besides mussells they menu isn't very Belgian and the beer selection was sub par.

Can anyone tell me where in Toronto to get back bacon on a bun (not peameal)?

When I go to the CNE I get back bacon sandwiches from the ZIGGY'S booth beside BMO field across from the Food building.
