The Social List is great if you want to perfect your brunch socialite persona. This American gastropub is soooo California that your flatbread pizza is served on a wooden board in the shape of California. Needless to say, you’re going to walk away with tons of sweet photos for your Insta but first, you need to try their iconic brunch items including Peanut Butter French Toast Waffles, Smoked Salmon Omelet and Crab Cake Eggs Benedict. Top off your brekkie with Liquid Gold, a butterscotch pudding layered with caramel and sea salt!

The State

Price Range: $11-30

A new addition to Victoria GardensThe State earned itself a spot on the trendy, modern American foodie list. With floor to ceiling windows, glittering marquee letters and kitschy drinks, The State isn’t your typical brunch spot. Settle your A.M. cravings with french toast or the classic chicken and waffles. In the mood for something more filling? You have to try the Drunken Pig burger or the poutine, both topped with fried eggs.
