Saving Grace // 907 Dundas St West 

Saving Grace is an awesome spot that is worth the wait. With the smaller size of the breakfast/brunch spot, sometimes there is a wait but trust me you are going to want to stick it out. Not only is the food delicious, but the menu changes so you never are stuck with the same old, same old!

Mildred's Temple Kitchen // 85 Hanna Ave 

You knew Mildred's was going to be on this list. Honestly the blueberry pancakes on their own could be the only reason why this spot is so widly popular on Instagram. Though the menu includes more than just the infamous pancake stacks and all are equally as pretty and delicious!

Uncle Betty's Diner // 2590 Yonge St 

Just because it's diner food doesn't mean it isn't photogenic! Diners in general get a bad rap for being pretty unappealing to the eye but still delivering great food. Luckily, Uncle Betty's gives you great food and a great atmosphere!
