Boom Breakfast

This just opened up on St Clair W. Went by it today and it was packed.

I understand they have one on College. Can anyone enlighten me to what's good?

  1. Boom on College is one of my favourite breakfast places. Mikeb, what cross street is it at on St. Clair?

      It's on the NE corner of St Clair W & Glenholme, halfway between Oakwood and Dufferin.

    2. Ate there once this year. It was good, but not great. Nice little neighbourhood spot, but no more.

      1. I would have to say that the breakfast there is horrible. They use frozen seasoned wedge potatoes as homefries. Their pancakes are too sweet.

          I like it pre-work during the week. Too crowded on the weekend. It's your classic breakfast special, done quickly and competently.

            Saw a picture of their food on their website. Doesn't look great.

            And, of course, all of those cutesy puns on the word "egg".

            Not the place I would go for a fry-up, that's for sure.

          2. It's a tremendous boon to fans of bland breakfasts.

            1. Can't say it was one of my faves. Waited a long time and breakfast was pretty ordinary.

                Roasted tomatoes were great! I wish I could say the same for everything else. Are there any other spots that give you a roasted tomato with your meal?

                  I had the tofu salad and it was perfect! And a side of fries, which were also great. Soft on the inside with a nice seasoning. The tofu salad was mixed greens, strawberries, blueberries, cashews, almonds, bits of silken tofu. The menu said grilled tofu, that's not what I got but it was great anyhow. Very long lineup on the weekend, bring a book.

                        It's gone in where Meggie's used to be -- the north side of Eglinton, a few blocks west of Yonge (just west of Edith Drive).
