Excellent brunch at School Bakery & Cafe

Tatai | Mar 8, 2009 12:07 PM

Following a less-than-stellar early brunch at Le Gourmand on Yonge St., my friends and I decided to try to make up for it (and ease our unsated souls) by heading down to Liberty Village to give School a try.

Glad we did! The place had a lineup almost out the door, but we decided to wait the 30-40 minutes it took for a table. The service and professionalism were evident the minute we entered and were offered, by chef/owner Brad Moore, a smoothie shooter as a token for waiting.

Chef Moore appears to have trained his chefs, wait staff and hostess extremely well. The service was delightful, and Chef seems to have a good pulse on the goings-on. Aside from offering the shooters, he's doing the expediting for the open kitchen and working the dining room, as well. There's an easy, laid back attitude among the staff -- no one's stressing out or sweating in the least, although they're extremely busy (Corey Mintz wrote a review in yesterday's Star).

We had the 4-cheese omelet souffle, which was fabulous and which came with a great pepper scone and wonderful white-and-sweet potato home fries; the SBC eggs benni, which were served with fabulous double-smoked bacon on biscuits, along with a perfect Hollandaise and the same home fries. The runny-egg-wary friend ordered well-done scrambled eggs, which came with bacon, a biscuit and home fries.

School is only open during daytime hours for now. Their lunch menu looks very appealing, and features all-day breakfast, along with lovely sounding lunch items.
