Top 3 brunch places in the city

Oh how I love Hibiscus, and wish it were twice the size.
It can get pretty cramped in there. It's as small as a living room.
The soup and salad may seem ho-hum on paper, but it is one of the most heavenly things around. It comes with a thick, homemade, blended hot soup (usually beet or squash based) that will cure any hangover instantly. The salad is actually 7 or 8 items nestled in a pretty bowl. They are all made from veggies, legumes and beans, but they are set apart by their flavours, which are are Japanese-y, and by that I mean unique and subtle: some sweet, some salty, all fantastic.
Their crepes are lovely too, as detailed by other reviewers. The pesto mushroom crepe is yummers.
They also serve gluten-free cookies which are actually edible.
friendly, great value, tas-TEE
crowded, cramped, washroom through the kitchen
