Luna Cafe, Toronto, ON

Luna Cafe is a small restaurant in our 'hood at Dovercourt/Argyle.

I wandered in one Sunday morning when I first moved here ten years ago. I checked out the menu. I'm not a big breakfast person and everything looked fancy ... no basic bacon and eggs ... so I left without ordering.

Gord and I checked it out this morning.

It's in the corner of a building ... it looks like it used to be a variety store.

Gord ordered poached eggs and peameal bacon on an English muffin with Hollandaise sauce. It came with potatoes and mixed greens. It was about $13.

I ordered buttermilk pancakes. It came with warm seasonal fruit (blueberries, pears and bananas) and organic yogurt. It was about $10.

The yogurt is supposed to be on the pancakes ... I asked for it on the side instead. It was delicious and I ate everything but the yogurt.

It's a small place and holds about 30 people. We got there about 10am ... it was jammed by 11am. Service was so-so ... that's okay if you aren't in a rush.

I'd go back again, especially in the summer when the patio opens.

This is one of the places I miss in the old neighbourhood. I used to stop there and get a coffee and muffin. I loved the feel of it - homey yet eclectic. - Monica

Love Gord's breakfast! Yum! Yours is okay, too. I just love his eggs and hollandaise sauce.
