Early Breakfast, West End?
Anyone have a recommendation for great breakfast and brunch for an early riser (why does everything open at 10 or 11???), other than the Sunset Grill? West Toronto area - from Yonge to Kipling, Lakeshore to St. Clair, ideal.
If you would like an early greasy spoon local try the Lucky Dice at lakeshore and 6th St. It's a traditional greasy spoon so don't expect anything fancy.
Saving Grace opens at 9am I believe. You may want to check though. They have amazing omelettes, frittatas, and scrambled eggs.
SAVING GRACE (907 Dundas West, 899-9186)
bar one on queen street opens at 9. And I THINK, but I'm not sure if Butler's Pantry (Queen & Bathurst) opens around 9 - but I am not 100% sure.
I'd recommend the Purple Onion is on the east side of Keele south of St Clair W. They open at 9 am.
It's a diner that has great diner breakfasts as well as the usual lunch and dinner suspects. They are also known for their good and inexpensive steaks. It ain't a high falootin' steak house, but tasty inexpensive beef made as ordered. We were there today and I had a tasty 6 oz steak and eggs for $7.
P & M Restaurant, 1972 Weston Rd (N/lawrence) Open at 8AM
Dundas Street Grille, 5238 Dundas St. W. (W/Kipling) Open at 7AM
They have the best breakfast and you'll be greeted just like family after a couple of visits........who says Toronto is a cold and unfriendly city??
