Yellow Pear is the best brunch spot in all of Ontario. Everything on the menu is unreal. Nicole and Jason go above to provide outstanding service and food cooked with farm to table ingredients. They’ve earned a lifetime supporter.

Warm welcome by the server. The selection on the menu is not eggs, bacon/ham - it is uniquely ‘one of a kind’ brunch. We had the Trout benny and mushroom toast - amazingly tasty! Want a change in your routine or a treat, this is the place to dine.

Plates infused with a lot of meaning and all of it delicious. Every time I dine there I think Nicole has a vision and executes it with a lot of interest and flavour. I find myself remembering and talking about the dishes days later

We absolutely love this place and their new dinner experience is incredible! Everything we had throughout the evening was delicious and the atmosphere and ambiance was so homey and inviting. They also accommodated one of us being vegan which was so great!

Whether we would dine again is not even a question, and if you’re looking for amazing food and drinks made by even better people, definitely hit this place up!!!!
