Queen Street East hits the mark yet again with Okay Okay, another retro diner joint. Lacking the reputation and hype that accompanies Bonjour Brioche and Lady Marmalade, Okay Okay has a chill vibe, and it is no problem to get a table on a Friday morning. Head here once you tire of the lineups at the other places.

As always, the Huevos called out to me, but I feared a disappointment akin to the one I felt at The Ace. Instead, I went with the Beatrice. I think putting hash browns in any brunch staple will automatically make it better. I don’t remember anything else about the meal, but I’d go back for it again. It was like eating Eggs Benedict at McDonald’s (one of those classy McDonald’s with the fireplaces and wifi)!

Chris did had the Huevos, and said it was only Okay Okay (I’m sure they’ve never heard that one before). Guess I made the right choice with the Beatrice.

Thanks for another great brunching Friday, Queen Street East.
