Just north of Leslieville and east of Toronto's East Chinatown is home to Hammersmiths at Logan and Gerrard. It's a non-descript location and you won't find the lines you will at Lady Marmalade just down the street.
Savour pots of tea, munch on mini scones with jam or feast on duck. Decor is simple - wooden chairs and some stools with the stove out in the open. It's non-pretentious and a lovely way to catch up with friends. They have cookies and tarts too!
If you want to walk it off, head north on Logan to Withrow Park up to the Danforth or south to Leslieville for a brunch crawl/design hop.
