Harlem Underground

745 Queen St W, Toronto, ON M6J 1G1

Get a feel for the Deep South with Southern-Fried Chicken and Waffles. The dynamic duo of crispy fried chicken and sweet buttermilk waffles, with scotch bonnet-coriander-lime syrup and homemade gravy, is available at both dinner and brunch service. The true standout - and insta-worthy selection - however, is The Bloody Jerk. While the cocktail itself sounds par for the course (vodka, Worchestershire, Jamaican jerk bitters, Harlem hot sauce, horseradish and Clamato), it’s the garnish that will wow the crowd: Harlem's Signature Mini Chicken n’ Waffles, candied plantain and deep-fried pickle.

Home Of The Brave Inc

589 King St W, Toronto, ON M5V 1M5

There are a ton of places to get chicken and waffles (in fact, that's a whole separate Best Of) but what makes HOTB stand out is they go the extra mile and do sourdough waffles. Served with crispy fried chicken, sour cream, spicy maple and green onion, you've got yourself one heck of a meal.

Junked Food Co Inc

507 Queen St W, Toronto, ON M5V 2B4

If you prefer savory over sweet or you're looking for something a little more extreme in your waffle choices, Junked Food Co.'s waffle sandwiches (The Pulled Junk for example), might be for you: a light and crispy housemade waffle gets stuffed with Dr. Pepper pulled pork, cheddar, pickles, slaw and Jolly Rancher BBQ sauce.

Starving Artist

505 Mount Pleasant Rd Main, Toronto, ON M4S 2L9

Stop by the newest location on Mount Pleasant for a staggering assortment of waffle dishes. Hmm ... eggs or waffles? If this is a question you often ask yourself, you can now rest easy, as S.A. offers five options that satisfy both cravings. From Waffle Sandwiches to the Fully Loaded - made with two potato waffles served with cheese, bacon, sour cream and cheese - you’ll have to make multiple visits to work your way through the menu.

Flock Restaurant

330 Adelaide St W, Toronto, ON M5V 1R4

Flock’s chicken is seriously addictive. Once you try it, you can’t stop thinking about it. The waffles (available for weekend brunch), accompanied with blueberry compote whipped cream, maple syrup and chicken, are simply a must.

Light Cafe

23 Baldwin St, Toronto, ON M5T 1L1

Tired of plain ol’ waffles? Baldwin’s Light Café offers a range of flavours to delve into, including Earl Grey, Matcha Red Bean and Charcoal Black Sesame. Bonus: these waffles have a fun, curlicue design, and mochi can be added to your order for only $1 extra.

Café Boulud

60 Yorkville Ave, Toronto, ON M4W 0A4

Chicken and waffles is often seen as casual grub, but at Café Boulud the dish gets elevated to elegant and sophisticated for Sunday brunch. Tuck into Rotisserie Chicken & Waffles - juicy, crispy roast chicken, served with Belgian waffles, spicy maple aigre-doux - as part of your two course or three course mid-day meal.

The Ace

231A Roncesvalles Ave, Toronto, ON M6R 2L6
