The brunch was outstanding! Perfect place to take the family for the holiday season lunch.
A group of 7 of us including 3 children had brunch and it was fantastic. Service was amazing very accommodating. Eggs Benedict with trout was delicious. I can’t wait to go back.
Great place for anyone (child to adult). Staff is excellent. Venue is perfect ... Bring clothing you are comfortable making a light hike in in summer and that you can skate in in winter.
Our guests were late but our server was very accommodating...
Everybody at CB is always so friendly - we have dined there each Saturday for the last few weeks and we’re remembered each time (which is quite remarkable, given the number of people who must eat there daily).
Then there’s the food, which is superb. The smoked trout is a must.
The wine list is also excellent; all local, all great. Try anything from Leaning Post - you won’t be disappointed.
Great service and food!!
Really good food, though $30 per plate after tax without drink is a little steep for brunch.
Great food. Great service.
The parking situation confusing. We all paid but it was complimentary! Food sounded better than it tasted.
Great food but ran out of key ingredients and had to replace with sausage, which wasn’t my preference. Kitchen should be prepared for a Sunday Brunch
Great food if a bit expensive, enjoyed the brunch in the sunlit Hall. Great place to visit after a bit of a walk in the wooded area around.
Love this place! Amazing food and love the vibe. Great service!!
Delicious delicious brunch.
Had the Saturday Brunch and it was great. I had the Frittata and my partner had the Challah French Toast with grilled peaches. Both were excellent. Server was attentive and helpful. It was busy so good idea to book reservation. After lunch walked the fresh market next door.
Excellent service, great ambiance, delicious food, easy to get a reservation at short notice. Pricier than expected, given the options. $25 for pancakes!
Nice spot, busy on a weekend. Brunch prices are exorbitant. Place was packed though!
Service very slow - surprising for weekend brunch. Many people behind the counter wandering around and wiping glassware (though drinks took forever too) who perhaps should have helped the kitchen.
As always, the ethos of this place rings true. We love the food. We love the space; particularly on a glorious sunny day. That said, this is the third visit in a row where the service has been deflating - as in, it is was so bad this visit that my fries didn’t taste as good. For example, it took the server 15 minutes (I think it was her third visit to the table) before offering me coffee. I actually didn’t even order coffee when she finally asked because my diastolic was getting the best of me. Not to mention: the place was not full (although I think the patio was busy). I’m all about being understanding with service - people (myself included) have bad days. But this is the third consecutive visit where the service was amateur. While this isn’t haute cuisine, it isn’t Denny’s either. Cafe Belong needs to Bebetter.
Only thing that may prevent me from going back was the parking on a Saturday morning during farmers market. It was a mess
We enjoyed the patio scene and the food was unique and good
Belong has been a favourite for birthdays and treats, but today was very disappointing. Service was incredibly slow—we Waited about 40 minutes at least for our meal and we were both disappointed with the dishes we ordered. When I told the server why I didn’t like the dishes, she dismissed my complaint because my dish was “a favourite”. My friend ordered pancakes which were burned and over cooked and she wasn’t offered more coffee. I don’t believe that Belong offers good value now. Apart from being unhappy with our meal, the cafe was extremely noisy; there was a party with attendees who were screaming and yelling, so all in all, this was a negative experience and I doubt that I’ll book it again.
The food is just good. The portions are very large to match the price tag, but too large. The service was good enough but not great, again, for these kind of prices.
I would come back only because it's in a very nice setting (brickworks) and the cocktails are pleasant.
Delicious food and professional service.
A little pricey for what you get. Considering this a destination spot and far off the beaten path, I suppose they think they can charge high prices for not overly exceptional food. You are a captive audience and I felt taken advantage of from that perspective. $75 for two people for lunch - without any alcohol- is a bit too much.
Much pricier than expected, but great food, service, and patio. Would go back!
We always enjoy Café Belong and the Sunday summer meal menu did not disappoint. We started with a delicious light arugula and apricot salad, then moved to a roast beef meal with fantastic sides, and topped it off with a black forest cake! The drinks, ambiance and food were all lovely and I would highly recommend it!
Great brunch spot. Food is always delicious. They have a very nice patio and staff is very pleasant and accommodating. Also very family friendly.
My salad was bland on bland. Entree was grilled veg and again totally tasteless. So disappointing. We love going there for brunch and expect the same high standard for dinner. Don’t know whether it is the Civic long weekend when the chefs are away or something. It is just off with the overall experience.
Wonderful experience. Friendly and professional staff, great setting, both indoor and patio available. Wonderful healthy natural tasty food.
Love this place. One of my favourite in Toronto. With the Farmers market on Saturday the parking is a bit of a challenge but absolutely worth going.
Everything was perfect except the table of very irritating people next to us! Not much you can do about that.
Brought some family visiting from Sweden. We had a wonderful time and food and service were great as per usual. You will continue to be a “must” stop when I show visitors around town.
It was nice simple food in a bright setting; staff were nice and helpful- a little noisy but that did improve
We’ve been coming here for many years. The food is always great, the service is inconsistent but usually good, the prices - and this is from someone who usually does not pay attention, are REALLY expensive, especially for brunch. We were asked for the table 1:30 into our brunch - that was unusual and while we were leaving anyway - we found that peculiar. Than again it’s a peculiar place - in a good way mostly.
An amazing experience made better by the amazing employees!
I have been to Cafe Belong on many occasions in the last year — both for lunch and dinner, both ordering a la carte and the communal meal. This recent visit was the first time my co-diners and I weren’t thoroughly pleased. We ordered the fish communal meal — our group had allergies to certain shellfish and lobster, so chef provided a beef dish (exceedingly undercooked) as our fourth dish. Every single dish we were served included asparagus, and while we all enjoy asparagus, it was too much of the same thing. Also, we were served smoked trout and scallops — all good, but every time I go it has been the same and I would hope the kitchen could vary their fish selection. Otherwise, service was friendly and lovely as always and I will return — just not for a while.
Scallops were delish. The tart’s are just ok.
my guest and I had a very pleasant experience and thoroughly enjoyed our lunch.
We were there with the crew for Father’s Day Brunch - food was delicious and the service was great!
