You asked for it, you got it. After the great response from our Summer Guide to Patios, I decided to create a guide for where to get breakfast and brunch in our fine city. I’ll begin by saying that I learned a lot putting together this post and I can tell you now that I’m sure I’ve missed some places. I made my way around downtown where I live and even in my own neighbourhood I found some new places to have breakfast. I went into the township but not beyond Days Road, so this is your chance to fill in the blanks. I like to think I hit all the major spots but I’m sure, as I discovered on my own street, that there are many great nooks and crannies to grab breakfast in Kingston. Tell us where you love to have breakfast, on or off the beaten path.
