NileGuide Expert tip:
Try the pancake. Its "famous" for good reason.
This is the third Mitzi's location to open in the city, and while it emerged on the strength of its predecessors, Mitzi's on College has quickly become a destination for the hungry morning-after crwd in Toronto's mid-west end. Line-ups are to be expected, but turnover is relatively efficient and the food is, very truly, worth the wait.
Dishes like the oatmeal pancakes (which are served with whipped cream, fruit compote and home fries) are both decadent and nutrient dense. Poached eggs are jazzed up by caramelized leek or a spicy chipotle cornmeal pancake with avocado and sour cream (plus home fries and toast).
Most menu options hit the $13.75 price point, which makes Mitzi's on College a slightly more expensive brunch option than many of its competitors. However, with generous servings and spot-on quality, Mitzi's on College is a special treat not to be missed by discerning brunchers.
