to add to this list…
aphrodite’s organic cafe (vancouver, bc) – good food, shitty service.
charlie’s little italian (vancouver, bc) – perfect hash browns, amazing benny, and they also do $4.50 caesars/baileys + coffee on weekends.
cafe zen (vancouver, bc) – pretty ordinary, nothing special.
oliver bonacini (toronto, on) – love how the eggs benny came on buttermilk & cheddar scones.
rustic cosmo cafe (toronto, on) – hit the spot, and also came with a nice side salad.
forage (vancouver, bc) – not usually on the menu and one of their specials of the day, so obviously had to get it.
