Cheap Eats 2011: Helser's on Alberta

As we shivered outside waiting 45 minutes for a table to wolf down Sunday brunch, we wondered if this packed Alberta Street spot would be worth it. Turns out all those huddled masses were on to something: a basic brunch with servings so big that many customers are carrying leftover containers when they squeeze out through the tight entryway. Put the crispy pepper bacon and eggs with a heap of potatoes ($7.50) in that tasty/huge category. The brioche French toast ($6.95) needed a second cup of syrup for moisture. The pigs in a blanket ($8.95) did not. Our waitress was unfrazzled and patient with us Helser’s newbies despite the tumult.
