Hello everyone! There are so many brunch spots in Toronto and more popping up all the time. One of the more fun brunch destinations is in Liberty Village in an old, converted autoshop. School is known for their crazy long lines (get there early and make sure everyone in your party is present) and equally crazy menu options.
I ate here a few years ago but that was the one and only time. Brandon and I decided to come here to exchange Christmas gifts and enjoy some interesting holiday brunch creations. It definitely has that industrial feel with the exposed brick and garage door, but it is super cozy inside and accented with school-themed decorations.
When we went, they were offering their 12 Days of Christmas brunch menu, however their regular menu isn’t far off. $6 for hot apple cider though? Geez. I decided to try their Chicken and Waffles ($20, with green butter, naturally) and while the waffle was delicious, the chicken was a bit on the drier side. The Tabasco-pepper honey had a nice bite and the slaw was a great side. Brandon had the Apple Pie Flapjacks (should’ve taken a photo) that were definitely filling (5 pancakes – he couldn’t even finish it all!) and looked pretty amazing.I love that the bill came in a report card envelope!
All in all it was a decent brunch. I’m sad that they no longer have the peanut butter and banana smoothie however the cider (even though pricey) was still very festive and delicious. If you’re looking for a hip and fun atmosphere and don’t mind paying a little more, then consider going to School.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
