We had heard so much about the place, we'd seen the pictures, but the experience was beyond expectations. The snap, crackle, pop french toast was incredible! We also had blueberry pancakes and the hash brown poutine. Service was great, ambiance was comfortable and the food was worth the price and the calories.

Very trendy and hip place on western edge of Toronto's Liberty Village. Love the ambience and nice attention to design and detail. The food was great. Tons of fun for brunch. The choices are both cool to see and well prepared. The scones are also great as an extra. Please note: School gets very busy for weekend breakfast by trendy... More

Great brunch experience. Location has lots of parking, small line waiting for the 09:30 opening. Upside was the unmistakable smell of pancakes and maple syrup. We were seated immediately when the bell rang, and our server was pleasant and attentive. Interesting menu - the staples with a bit of a twist. Had a great time, good food, good value for... More

Came here for brunch because the original restaurant we wanted to try was actually closed. Wait time was roughly half an hour for 2, no complaints there. They currently have a holiday brunch menu. Tried the chicken and waffles and the hashbrown poutine, along with some of the juices they offered. $6 for the juice that didnt really taste fresh... More

We had brunch at School on Sunday for a party of 8 people. We arrived at 11 am and we were seated at 12:30 pm. School does not allow substitutions on their menu to allow them to be efficient with their service. I understand, but some people in the party wanted their eggs cooked in a certain way and some...

School Resto is legendary for their award-winning brunch. There was 45 min line-up on Sunday late morning but it was worth it! The waiter said I was the first one of the day to finish all the flapjacks lol (this was alread past noon as well). We had and recommend both of the following: 1) Black 'N' Blue Flapjacks Stacked...

We ended up having brunch here as the place we intended to go had too long a wait, we still had to wait about 45 min to get seated, but it was worth it. The brunch was very good and the decor and atmosphere of the place is very vibrant.

I think it was fate we got in to eat at this place because when we went you need to put your name on a waiting list to get a table. We weren't supposed to get seated but we did- and happily got to finally try this place. The atmosphere and interior is very hip and trendy, there's probably 15... More

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
The go-to area for new business start-ups, the spry and creative persona of the West End thrives along its streets. Its independent boutiques, galleries, restaurants, and shops offer brands that can't be found elsewhere. Buildings with ground floor consumer spaces sport up-top artist's lofts, and the West End attracts artists, designers, and fashion industry professionals to its living quarters. It is in the cross-hairs of gentrification, but still resisting it with ironic relish. Hot deals can still be found here on furniture and knick-knacks,. Its call to culinary glory is in its well-priced homemade Polish food, hosting Toronto's go-to spots for hot pierogis and cold borscht. High Park, the largest green space in the city, is a place for dreamers and poets to wander and rest, not to mention a number of energetic actors staging outdoor plays in the summertime.
