Toba

After reading the recommendations from below about Toba, I went to take a look there for myself. They were serving the brunch menu from which I ordered the Corn Beef Hash (13) and a tea (2). I'll admit, there was a bit of sticker shock at the prices (such as pancakes or the traditional 2 eggs at around 10 dollars) at first, but knowing the neighbourhood I was eating at, I came over it pretty quickly.

The hash was very good, a whole affair of quasi-mashed potatos, topped with what looked to be a slice of corned beef (could've been slightly more generous in that department, IMO), topped with two oven broiled eggs, a dollop of hollandaise, a drizzle of sauce made with chipotle, a slice of house made toast, sauteed spinach, and some dressed mesclun. The eggs were just cooked and deliciously runny, the chipotle sauce had just a hint of a pleasant kick, the hollandaise tasted deliciously homemade and lemony, and the house brown toast was a thicker than normal slice and came with a good peach jam.

The atmosphere is cozy and the service was bright and cheerful without being too gushy.
