Breakfast at Mimi's
El vez omelette with maple cheddar
Tomorrow we are being treated to breakfast at Mimi's (see above) for the most scrumptious blintzes on the planet for me and the famous 'El Vez' omelette for Steve. His omelette has Mimi's homemade chili and maple cheddar cheese while my blintzes are filled with fresh farmers cheese and sided with fresh fruit, sour cream and her homemade fruit compote. Can't wait!
We try to get there by 10:00 to beat the crowd, and even though Mimi's diner is sort of a hidden gem in Toronto, it is quite small, with 3 booths and seating for 7 at the counter. Mimi collects alot of vintagey stuff, including her collection of chickens, eggs and roosters. The place gets pretty lively with Mimi chatting away to customers while cooking up a storm, and the tv bolted to the wall plays 80's videos. It is probably our favorite brunch spot in all of Toronto. They also make a lovely latte. It's definetely worth getting up early on Sunday for Mimi's.
God, I love a good breakfast!
