Brunching at this lovely café is a dream come true for those who have ever dreamt of waking up in France.

Ever wanted to escape to France just for breakfast? Well dining at Colette Grand Café is the next best thing.

Located on the ground floor of the Thompson Hotel in downtown Toronto, the café features a classy dining area, a bakery café, an outdoor terrace, and an exquisite bar. It caters to anyone in the city looking for an escape. The beautifully designed interior, big windows, and high ceilings let in an abundance of sunlight. Walking into this eatery is second only to actually being in France. Take the time to enjoy the pleasant atmosphere, delicious bites, and coffee drinks at this classy café — you won't regret it.

Colette’s simplistic brunch menu on Saturdays includes dishes such as crunchy granola and a croquet monsieur. The classic French toast comes with spiced apple compote and the option to add seared foie gras (why not?) A personal favorite is its eggs benedict. The poached eggs are presented on a thick bed of smoked salmon with a spread of avocado in-between. It's served on a baked croissant, fresh from its bakery, which is absolutely divine.

If you don’t have time to sit down and eat a meal, you can always go to their bakery café and grab something to-go. They serve a variety of French pastries, including macarons and croissants, and brew quality coffee to suit you java desires.

The bakery is open daily from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., while the dining room is open from 11:30 a.m. to close from Monday to Friday. Furthermore, Colette is open for brunch on Saturdays at 10 a.m. and on Sundays, Colette offers a brunch buffet starting at 10 a.m. Reservations are highly recommended so call now, because who doesn’t want to go to France?
