Sunday Lunch
Every thing we do is local, sustainable and organic. But it’s more than just food choice and ingredients. Cafe Belong is about creating a connection between the natural food from our land, the farmers that nourish and harvest it, and ultimately, the people who enjoy it.

It’s this ‘circle of sustainability’ that will surround your visit – a sense of belonging to the environment and to the beautiful Evergreen Brick Works venue. It’s this dedication to provenance, preparation and presentation that stand as a testament to value.

Great service, good food with a revolving menu of farm fresh dishes. The patio looks like it would be incredible in the summer, right in the Evergreen Brick Works valley. Only downside is that it’s a bit too expensive for the quality and value of the experience. Definitely worth one visit though!

Service continues to be problematic. Also, there are too many tables in the restaurant - particularly the west side (I think) making it very difficult for servers and patrons to navigate. Food remains the strong suit.

Such a surprise behind the bakery!
Highly recommend. Especially for a weekend brunch or lunch. Food is excellent and it’s a lovely location.
Love their vegan soups.

This restaurant located in the Brickworks offers a very good atmosphere and selection of food and drinks.
Excellent presentation of the meals. Great selection of wines.
A little in the expensive side but a very enjoyable dining experience.

Great experience with Ver the Christmas holidays with the holiday store and the Christmas tree market right next door. It’s become our annual tradition to eat a Christmas brunch at Cafe Belong followed by shopping for trinkets and a Christmas tree. Highly recommended.

What a gem! The whole experience is unique to Toronto. The beautiful unique setting away from the hussle and bussel, the unique decor, the locally sourced ingredients, the wine list (different and well-paired), the creative menu, expertly prepared and presented,.. What more can you ask for?

Went on a Friday night in October and it was very empty and quiet which was perfect for us. Great service and the food was fantastic. Amazing flavours with ingredients that were also in season and fantastic. Definitely a jewel if you are looking for a great meal at an affordable price with a quiet setting.

A cozy and only restaurant located in the Evergreen Brick Works. I ordered a Sausage with mushroom from the brunch menu. It was delicious. The taste was well-balanced. Just a bit pricey. Most dishes is over $30.

We had a superb evening at Cafe Belong. The food was stupendous and the service was spot on. The music was a little loud but quietened down towards the end of the evening. We have eaten in a number of restaurants this year and it was probably one of the best meals we have had. We are regulars and will be back.

This place is a lovely place to bring a date. It's very intimate (maybe because it was a quiet night) anywho, the food was exceptional. I only wished the lamb was less fatty since there's quite a lot of large chunks of fat. The menu is very limited but that's also because its farm to table type of place (local-seasonal ingredients) Also, it's worth looking into trying they're 3 or 5 course meal if you are going to order apps, entre and dessert,which I kind of regret not doing) I wasnt intending on ordering a full 3 course + drinks for 2. We usually share our apps and desserts since we're not big eaters but it's been a long day and everything just seems so enticing (stomach speaking) after ordering, little did we know we had ended with a $200 bill....which i should of went for the 5 course meal instead haha. Overall, I'd definitely be back quite often.

The waitress forgot about my table and the one next to me. They all complained about her service and the manager had to bring the food out apologizing for the very long delay. I had a dairy intolerance that I informed the restaurant about, they told me not to worry and that nothing I ordered would have any dairy... but then when I got my food... guess what .... it had dairy; a ricotta cheese salad they just forgot had dairy in it. Are you kidding? Worst service and overpriced food. Can’t believe this experience. Can’t believe I paid over $60 for the worst experience ever.

Thanks for a lovely brunch - all good - low noise {suspect inside would have been too noisy} outside and perfect weather. Excellent service from Meghan.
Only slight disappointment .... frittata slightly below usual high standard .... previous occasions (about 3 or 4) would give frittata a 10/10 - Sept 08 - only 7/10. The cauliflower and cocoanut soup was outstanding.

We sat on the patio because we had our dog with us. The first waiter literally through the wood menus down on the table clearly upset that he had another table on the patio?? Perhaps he wanted his shift to end? I’m not sure but it was an awful first impression. We waited far too long for someone else to come and take our drink order. We got appetizers, but no cutlery to eat it with until someone from our party of 4 went into the restaurant and got it herself. Honestly the service was terrible. The food was good.

It was everything I expected in a farm to table experience. I decided to feast and had the homemade bacon, the frittata, and a side pancake. All were incredibly delicious. Washed it down with the homemade cherry pomegranate juice. Will make a point to dine here each time I’m in Toronto. There is a lot to explore in the complex the restaurant is in, a nice weekend spot for sure.

If you have never tried the restaurant before, it’s ok to have a try. The menu has very few choices and it never changed too. The environment is very nice and cozy.
