With a fun interior and atmosphere, Aunties and Uncles is a treat even if you don't like the food (which is great, anyways).
College Street hipsters pack this "cute, funky" South Annex diner all done up in retro kitsch with sparkly tables and Pez dispensers; it dishes out homey fare like pancakes and BLTs for "cheap", but "go early" or be prepared for a "line", especially during weekend brunch; P.S. cash only and it closes at 3 PM.
Aunties and Uncles is one of Toronto's favourite brunch spots. The pancakes here are super fluffy and the place is always buzzing. Just make sure to get here early to avoid the lineups.Photo from gbalogh in the blogTO Flickr Pool
Annex intellectuals and bohemians flock to the picnic table filled patio and leather studded dinette chairs on weekends for good eats and relaxed conversation. A hodge- podge of retro paraphernalia like the vintage slush puppy clock and album covers scattered on the walls, are ripe conversational starters. You won't be speaking when the food comes because it's that delish. Fill up on popular... more

The place has a old school, vintage feel with posters... more

Yes, there will be a wait, and you will have to stand outside, but its worth the wait. The place is extremely small, kind of divey but I think its perfect! If feels like you're sitting in grandmas kitchen back in the 1940's.
The waitress remembers us every time we come back, I have... more

Yes, that's the motherloving secret. If you come at 2:30pm (they close at 3), if you get there at 2:40, that's perfect.
The prices are great. The food is fantastic, and the ambience is fun and kitschy.
Aunties and Uncles is the place to head to if you wish for a hearty breakfast early in the morning.
