Very sad to say that Sugar Cafe on Queen West closed up yesterday. It was by far my favourite brunch spot in the city - killer french toast (on challah, with fruit coulis, creme fraiche and maple syrup), great eggs benny and, of course, great americanos and lattes with the ubiquitous ramekin of milk chocolate squares. But beyond the food, I'll miss the energy of the room - casual and neighbourhoody - and the warmth of Suzy, the owner.
In the "if you loved Sugar, you'd love..." world, where else would you suggest? I've not been to Saving Grace in a while but it was probably the closest vibe for me in the past - still good? Other suggestions?
