As I sit here immediately following the wonderful breakfast I just enjoyed, I think to myself that in this digital-media-infused age, the best way to express my appreciation for Sunrise and all the staff here would be to share them with people who love experiencing great food, but who may never have had the joy of dining here.
A small an cozy restaurant with a very casual atmosphere, the service typically strikes a good balance between efficient and courteous. The staff are always sincerely welcoming, and seem to function well, presenting themselves as close as a well-functioning family. Price points = economical-to-moderate.
The casualness of the space refreshingly does not interfere with the quality of the food, which has always been fresh, piping hot, flavourful, and--most importantly to me--cooked to order. I'm extremely particular about egg whites having to be fully cooked without rendering the yolk a hardened mass of light yellow protein, and it is refreshing to come across a breakfast space in Toronto that can consistently accomplish this without making me feel like an nuisance for my particularity! The menu is often updated with new and interesting breakfast items, not one of which I've been disappointed with, and some of which I return specifically for.
I have been frequenting Sunrise Grill & Crepe--located on the north end of Roncesvalles, specifically 417 Roncesvalles Avenue--for approximately 4 years. The reason I choose to write this now is because I, myself, have a lengthy hospitality background, and what strikes me most about Sunrise at this point is the constant incremental improvement with the quality of both the food and service. This is rare to witness and a fantastic balance for the restaurant to have achieved, as it keeps me coming back, and will ensure new clientele for them, I'm certain!
I am honoured to be a recognized and welcomed patron of the restaurant, and I wish them all the best!
