One of the city's biggest brunch destinations is making a move out of Leslieville.
Lady Marmalade, which has been a Queen East mainstay since opening in 2009, announced it's moving to new digs at Broadview and Dundas next spring.
Husband and wife owners David Cherry and Natalia Simachkevitch have partnered with acclaimed Canadian architect Omar Gandhi to dream up the design on the new space in East Chinatown.
The new Lady Marmalade will be a "bright and airy dining space, walled with greenery and washed in natural light," according to the announcement.
Hungry brunchers need not worry: Lady Marmalade’s menu and hours will remain unchanged.
“We feel very lucky that we have found a perfect new home just around the corner, and can continue to host our family and friends, while being a part of the evolution of Toronto’s Riverside neighbourhood” Simachkevitch says. “Seeing our vision come to life through Omar Gandhi is incredibly exciting."
Lady Marmalade is outrageously popular for its all-day-brunch menu, so much so that it regularly sees lineups down the block. Question is: Will the crowds follow to the new location?
Stay tuned for the launch of its new home at 265 Broadview Ave. in spring 2018.
Lambretta Pizzeria is set to launch an east end outpost at Queen and Curzon this fall with brick-oven Roman-style pizza and a menu of Italian favourites including pastas, frittis, salumi and cheese platters, salads and desserts.Read More
The lineups tell it all at Bonjour Brioche, the French bakery and brunch institution in Toronto's east end. Show up after 10 on the weekends and there's a crowd around the block willing to wait — even on a sub-zero winter morning — for a buttery pastry fix of flaky croissants, warm baguettes and quiche du jours. This is testament to the expertise, passion, detail and je ne sais quoi happening in the charming patisserie in which owners Henri and Lori Feasson have been wooing locals and visitors for 20 years.Read More
