Our Frisco friends Isabelle and Noah were visiting the city and we wanted to do a big group brunch here in Toronto. We decided to go with The Sister for two reasons – the ability to reserve for a big group (we had 8 people sit down to brunch) and a good selection of brunch items. We couldn’ t wait to see what The Sister had in store for us…
The group was of two minds: Savoury and Sweet. I went with savoury and ordered the Huevos Rancheros. I loved the food plating for huevos rancheros. Look how colourful, and a very generous helping of guacamole was much appreciated.
Some of the group decided to go for sweet with their special s’mores pancake.
The biggest draw back? The service. We had a non-smiling waitress, who was hard to find. Someone got a plate of burnt pancakes, and while the kitchen was quick to replace her meal, our waitress was nowhere to be found.
I had bigger expectations for the Sister, a Parkdale institution one could say. Unfortunately, the service just didn’t impress and with burgeoning Parkdale food scene I am afraid that this restaurant might get left behind.
