Many of our Best Restaurants categories were decided by razor-thin margins. The votes were close. This was not one of them. Rosewood Foods was the overwhelming choice, as our judges echoed their praises on this downtown spot. Located on Rice Howard Way, Rosewood Foods ticks all the boxes: really great coffee, a super selection of baked goods and a bunch of great brunch and breakfast items. Go for the sweet with the Lemony Buttermilk Pancakes, or the breakfast sandwich that’s a full two-hander. Whatever you do, get the side of potatoes, because no one does fried potatoes quite like Rosewood Foods does. It’s not often that you can get excited about a side dish, but, if you don’t have these nuggets of goodness on your plate, you are missing out. — Steven Sandor
Your heart may have skipped a beat if you noticed this restaurant’s former location looked empty, but fear not — it’s hopped across the street to share space with its sister restaurant (Pals) in a brighter and bigger space. Hit that savoury brunch craving with traditional Eggs Benedict in a heavenly dill hollandaise, while satisfying your sweet tooth with a refreshing cocktail, such as the grapefruit mimosa. — Matthew Stepanic
Brunch at Castle Bake Pita may be a bit outside your comfort zone, but that’s all the more reason to try it. Specializing in Middle Eastern cuisine, Castle Bake offers up all-day break-fasts featuring pita pockets and your choice of hummus, baba ghanoush, falafel and more. The pitas are beautifully puffy and flaky and the toppings fresh, drizzled with savoury olive oil and seasoned with fresh cilantro. Find Castle Bake in Castle Downs, north of 153rd Avenue. If you’re up for an adventure, you’ll find a good one here. — Michael Ganley
