If you’re traveling with children you’ll want to check out these five family friendly brunch restaurants in Toronto, Ontario.

1. School

Located in parking friendly Liberty Village, School’s brunch menu is divided into sweet and savoury sections. While there is no kids menu there are plenty of side options to build a smaller plate and the a la carte portions are large enough to share.

School also gets bonus points for using local free run eggs alongside hormone and antibiotic free meat.
