The 11 Best Brunch Spots in the Toledo Area (Updated)

Note: This post has been updated as of April 11, 2017 to include new recommendations. 

It doesn’t matter what you’ve heard. We happen to think that brunch is the most important meal of the day. You can reap the benefits of a hearty breakfast, choose a more lunchy item if you wish, sip on mimosas — and do all of this at the lazy hour of 11 a.m. (or later!) on a weekend.

In order to experience this brunch phenomenon on a more regular basis, consult our list of the best brunch spots in and around Toledo. Most brunch menus are served on the weekends, but there are a few hidden gems that offer brunch on a daily basis!
