Which is Better - Fressen or Calico?

Our plans changed and Brunch was out. Glad you mentioned Karines was in a food court, else it would have been quite a surprise. We did go there for a quick breakfast. Servings were large, lots of fresh fruit, bottomless coffee. Good amount of vegan choice. Good value. Owner lovely lady. Quite busy too. Across the street from OCAD, down the street from AGO.

Unfortunately did not make it over to Calico this trip, but it is at the top of mygo to list on the next trip to Toronto. Will be very interesting to compare to Fressen. I am looking forward to it!

Went to Fressen for dinner. Dinner was lovely, quite nice enough. Service was charming. Restaurant was VERY busy for a Wednesday evening. Reservations are a MUST We arrived at 5:30 opening and there were only a couple tables still available. There were three celebration parties- a table of 12, table of six,and another arriving. I noticed the hostess turning away quite a few customers that evening.

The filo pastry appetizer was outstanding! Mains were good, only comment was that all the mains had the same array of veggies, so really not much choice. We shared a really nice dessert, an avocado-chocolate mousse on chocolate pate with fresh fruits. We will go back again next trip!

I am coming to Toronto later this week for several days and have not tried either restaurant. I eat vegan food and am interested to hear opinions which is the better choice for dinner- Fressen or Calico. Also which brunch is the best bet- Fressen, Calico, or Karines. Any other suggestions for vegan dinner or brunch? Thanks
