Brunch on the Patio 📷 @ahainers #mahasbrunch #brunch #Egyptian #food #toronto #eat #mahas

Egyptian brunch served all day every day is a major draw in Toronto’s east end brunch spot and Maha’s corner patio is not nearly big enough to accommodate the crowds. Should you have to wait for a table, occupy yourself with a cardamom latte then practice some patience as you wait for your chance to indulge on sunny eggs with foole or falafels wrapped around soft eggs.
