If Toronto had a best kept brunch secret Luna Cafe would be it. The former corner grocery on a tree-lined stretch of Dovercourt is far from a bustling street. Located in a residential pocket of Toronto’s west end, Luna offers a “welcome to the neighbourhood” vibe where in-the-know locals come to catch up.
Sun splashes through the windows while a recreation of Caravaggio’s portrait of Bacchus winks over a whirling espresso machine.
Wag your fingers down Luna’s menu and you’ll find French inspired light fare, perfect for those looking to treat their body right in the early hours.
Menu items are feel good as the chef sources meat humanely raised by Ontario farmers without the use of hormones or antibiotics.
Fresh interpretations of the breakfast wrap take up half of the menu and feature scrambled eggs lovingly muddled with the likes of avocado, brie, shiitake, smoked gruyere and smoked salmon.
Entree’s are also egg-centric with the simple but sweet fave Memories of St. Denis offering a friendly plate featuring two free-range eggs, maple baked beans, double smoked bacon and crunchy sourdough toast.
