Early breakfast in Downtown Toronto
I am accompanying someone who has a MRI scheduled for an unbearably early time midweek around University/College. By 5:30am-6am we'll be ready to start the REAL day with a fine breakfast. Any suggestions for a good place open that early? (BTW, the appetite of the "patient" is hearty and unconstrained.)
It's a little bit of a trek from where you will be, but the Thompson Diner @ Bathurst and Wellington is open 24 hours, and they serve a pretty good breakfast..
Oh, brings back memories of my husband's MRI appointment once - 3:30 am. Thankfully, he too was healthy and unconstrained.
I think that Cora on Carlton, just east of Yonge, opens at 6. There's also Mars on College, near Bathurst. Thompson Diner sounds like a good bet for the best of the bunch - I would think that some of the other hotels may be options as well. And assuming you have a car, the traffic is pretty non-existent at that hour so you can consider an extra few minutes in the car to chase that fine breakfast you're looking for.
Which is Best and Open at 5am as we too are taking someone for an MRI at this hour , same location
Mars Food, 432 College St.
Lakeview 1132 Dundas Street West
George Street Diner, 129 George St

Sunset Grill, 1 Richmond St. W
Bellwood Restaurant 756 Queen St W
Fran’s Restaurant 200 Victoria St

I'm pretty sure Mars is only open 24 hours on weekends, and wouldn't be open at 5 am on a weekday. Most diners open at 6 or 7 am. Sunset Grill opens at 7 am http://www.sunsetgrill.ca/Stores-Curr...
You might be limited to McDonald's, The Thompson Diner (at the Thompson Hotel http://www.thompsondiner.com/ ), Fran's or Lakeview Lunch at 5 am on a weekday. I'd probably choose the Thompson Diner if those were my 4 choices.
