good brunch with a friendly, down-to-earth vibe

prima | Jan 10, 2013 09:01 AM

Anyone have any suggestions for a brunch place with a down-to-earth vibe?

Looking for places where the service is friendly, as well as places where the customers generally come across as down-to-earth and friendly.

I'm also looking for the kind of place where you could eat brunch at the bar solo, and end up talking to someone eating brunch next to you. Or where you might end up talking to the table of guests seated next to you. I realize some Chowhounds don't like talking to strangers at other tables, but I wouldn't mind hearing about places where strangers do talk to one another at brunch.

Any part of the city, restaurants and pubs would work.

I find the servers at Lola's Kitchen and Stockyards very friendly. Pizzeria Libretto Danforth and Pizzeria Libretto on Ossington have had a friendly, down-to-earth vibe whenever I've been there for brunch.

I haven't been for a while, but I used to find the Rebel House had a down-to-earth vibe during brunch.

Has anyone tried the brunch at Cowbell?

Thanks for any ideas.
