In the heart of the action

We early risers (parents of a toddler) used to begin our outing to the Beaches by having a sturdy breakfast at Sunset Grill (2006 Queen St. E.), where we knew our son would find the pancakes to his liking (try to sit in the back under the skylights). We also liked the fact that the restaurant is located across from Kew Gardens, a park with one of the prettiest playgrounds: a lovely castle-like climbing structure built around the mature tree. There's a wading pool adorned with painting adjacent to the playground, a bandstand to explore in the middle of the park, and a round house surrounded by flowers closer to the lake. You only need to walk a few minutes across the park to reach Kew Beach and the boardwalk. Kew Gardens is usually in the heart of the many special events organized in the Beach neighbourhood throughout the year.
