West of Yonge Street, you’ll find a number of brunch spots in Toronto which have a bustling scene every weekend morning. The Lakeview Restaurant in Little Portugal is not only a local favourite, but it was also featured on Guy Fieri’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives on the Food Network.

Unfortunately I have to say I was a bit disappointed with this place. Their house-named benedict was served on a crab cake that fell flat with the eggs. It was hard to distinguish whether there was real crab in the cake and it was over seasoned in my opinion.

Their apple pie milkshake which is made by throwing in half a piece of apple pie in the blender, could have been done better. I felt that the chunks of apple pie crust (most of the pieces were soggy) didn’t really lend to a great experience while drinking it.

Sorry Guy, this place just doesn’t do it for me.

Until we dine again,
