Glad to be at the Gladstone Hotel- Acoustic Family Brunch is a family hot spot!

Saturday, November 24, 2012


What a pleasure to spend a Sunday afternoon among cool parents, children freely roaming and having a great time,  listening to terrific blue grass played joyously by excellent musicians and eating delicious, organic food served by an engaged and happy staff at the Gladstone Hotel!

We ordered a variety of food for brunch and all of it was so refreshingly delicious! Banana Bread French Toast, Quiche and their Cuban Sandwich, you can browse the menu here.  Starting Nov.25/12 they will also have an Adult Buffet($16) that compliments the Kids Buffet($10).  I loved that they use Harmony milk and cream(organic, local dairy farmer) for our coffee and sons Chocolate Milk.       
We would never have thought, in a million years, that we would have found all this at the hip and trend-setting Queen W. landmark Gladstone Hotel.
We've all had more than our share of staff in restaurants  roll their eyes when they see us enter with little ones, or, god forbid, a stroller!  Get used to it, this is the way it is now!  Kids are going EVERYWHERE with their parents and the Gladstone has welcomed it with open arms for their Acoustic Brunch!  It meshes perfectly music, food, kids and fun.
This can only work if the servers are into it mind you.  And we all know how Toronto, let alone Queen St., can be!

That's why it was such a breath of fresh air to walk in and immediately see the smiles and enthusiasm permeate throughout the place.
Charlie was in his element!  He was checking everything out from the gorgeous bar and dining areas to the wonderful old 1907 'Cowboy Elevator' -- and making sure he took me and Jay on a tour!
And, of course, he danced.  A lot.
The Gladstone was built in 1889 and beautifully restored in 1989.  It is a glorious icon of Toronto's colourful past and we think it's ready to paint some new colours on the future!

Families can also pop in and chill out with free coffee during the week!
Doesn't get more family friendly than that!
