hello, first id like to say im sorry if my sushi buffet post caused a lot of comotion. i am a 'newbie', and didnt really know how things work, but i assure you next time i will do a search.

anywho, i would like to know if anyone out there could tell me if they know of a place that serves a traditional or just irish breakfast? english/scottish will do also. as well, any bakeries, shops that sell irish/scottish brekkie stuff would be great too!
thanks in advance!

  1. You'll have a hell of a time finding White Pudding if you're looking for a true Irish Breakfast. On Weekends The Irish Embassy at Wellington and Yonge offers an Irish breakfast with eggs, sausage, bacon, black pudding, tomato and baked beans.

    Around the corner on Colborne is their sister place, PJ Obrien. They offer the brunch as well. If you believe their website they do have white pudding. When I talked to the manager in August, they didn't have it on the menu. Definitely worth checking out.

    I've heard that Mcnies's offered an Ulster Fry near Burnanthorpe and Martin Grove, but I've never been there. In fact I don't know whether they're still even open or whether it is indeed true that they offer a Fry.

    Let us know what you find.
