As tends to happen with the busiest breakfast spots in the city, Kanela has multiplied. There are six locations now, but this is the original, still serving their popular Greek-influenced brunch. There are at least four options for French toast on a given day, and plenty of different egg dishes. Be sure to get some of the sweet cinnamon monkey bread to split for the table.
