OK, I know brunch has been done on this board but I'm looking for a specific expert recommendation.
Taking my out of town friend for a girls' weekend & would like to explore/shop the west Queen west area. Where is best for brunch - looking for good food - all the typical dishes - plus interesting breakfast cocktails, a hip/fun atmosphere but preferably not a long wait (or a place that takes reservations?).
Mildred Pierce doesn't do Sat., and I've had a mediocre experience at Sugar (sorry, I know some of you love it) - what about Saving Grace? Czehoski? other recs?
If there is any "strategy" to the place you suggest, please let me know eg. call ahead, time to arrive, etc. My friend is not a T.O girl and won't be into the fabulous brunch line-up experience.
