But first, we brunch. If you’re looking for unbe-leaf-able brunch spots near Toronto, then you need to visit The Watering Can Flower Market in Ontario. They’ve recently reopened their outdoor patio and the menu is sure to have you drooling.
At their Vineland, Ont., location this whimsical flower and pastry market has everything you need for a perfect weekend brunch date.
Currently, you can enjoy fluffy waffles topped with fresh local strawberries and refreshing ice cream sundaes to cool you down in the stifling summer heat.
The outdoor patio has socially distanced tables set up amidst a sea of succulents, monsteras, and other greenery that will speak to your plant-loving heart.
And if you’d prefer to take your succulents and snacks to go, they also offer a mouth-watering takeout menu where you can enjoy a variety of pastries, including these adorable mini egg baked goods.
Lunch and dessert menu items will be available on the patio from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m.
According to a post on the market’s Instagram, reservations are not required. However, you will be limited to a group of six people.

If your appetite for new plants is never satiated, then you’ll adore the wide selection of rare and unusual greenery that’s growing here as well.
You can expect to see everything from Hoyas to pineapple plants and every gorgeous green baby in between.
And if you’re driving in from out of town, you can call ahead to pay for and reserve plants before they’re all sold out.
