School Bakery & Cafe: Perfect Report Card

I was late for school last Sunday – but I am not worried as it won’t show up on my report card!

School Bakery & Cafe is one of the hottest brunch spots in town.  Located in Liberty Village, Brad Moore (of past Toronto hotspot – Xacutti) opened School in February 2009 and attendance has been at full capacity ever since.

An apple for the teacher sits on each table, chalkboards on the walls, the clocks all say 3:30 and the bill comes in the form of a report card.  The scene is creative class heads downtown or around the corner and grunge meets Porsche and in a lot of cases grunge drives the Porsche!

Classics from his famous Xacutti brunch menu have followed.  My favorites are the Gooey Four Cheese Omelet Souffle and the Super Cheesy French Toast.  The pancakes come in a mile high stack and its hard to leave without visiting the bakery.  I just tried the “kitchen sink” bar last week – it was beyond!

School is “in session” during the week as well and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner(only during patio season).  Serving up old classics like Mac & Cheese, Meatloaf, Fish & Chips, Burgers – its comfort food at its best.

For the naughty kids – School schedules  “Detentions” – after school/work drinks and snacks.

And I suppose you could call sitting outdoors on their fabulous patio the ultimate recess!
