School | Liberty Village

It's fun to go to school when you are a grown-up, especially when school is one of the best brunch spots in Toronto. I love French toast with lots of crispy bacon on top, and then pouring lots of maple syrup over the whole pile. When I heard the super cheesy bacon French toast at School in Liberty Village was out of this world, I couldn't wait to try it. It was amazing. I loved the shot glass of maple syrup on the side.

The decor at School is great; there are apples on the tables and the patio looks like a hipster school yard.

The menu items are fun and inventive like the Krispy Krunch French Toast which is rolled in "Snap, Crackle & Pop w/ Orange Maple Marmalade + Sugar Dust." The "Is Quinoa a Carb? Burger" is covered in jalepeno jack cheese, bourbon BBQ sauce and guac. School is just half-days here- it is open for breakfast, lunch and weekday brunch. Rosie :)

Appalachia Smokehouse & BBQ | South Etobicoke

**Update: Both locations of Appalachia, this one on the Queensway and the one on the Lakeshore, are now permanently closed.**

Do you love slow smoked BBQ all smothered with delicious sauce? Appalachia is the real deal. The brisket, pulled pork and chicken sandwiches are seasoned with a signature house rub and piled on fresh brioche buns.

The baby back ribs are outstanding. Keep in mind you can only get these after 5pm.

All the sides are made in-house. Love the baked beans and the sweet potato fries. Coleslaw comes with every sandwich.

So awesome to have such authentic BBQ in south Etobicoke. Rosie :)
