Murphy's Law Pub & Kitchen

1
1702A Queen St E, Toronto, ON M4L 1G6

Starting at 10:30 a. m. on weekends and holidays, Murphy’s Law provides traditional Irish breakfast items to go down with your hair-of-the-dog Guinness. You’ll find more than the usual breakfast fare at this Beach restaurant, like corn beef hash and baked beans, alongside eggs Benedict and a vegetarian omelette (with brie inside!). Caesars are available during brunch – but so is beer and Irish coffee. You'll have some tough decisions to make.

Beacher Cafe

2
2162 Queen St E, Toronto, ON M4E 1E4

You can find breakfast at Beacher Cafe all day, every day. Make your choice from a list of irresistible dishes, like Eggs Benjamyn (poached eggs on top of smoked salmon), Eggs Florentine (poached eggs on spinach), and Belgian waffles. You can also find smoked salmon scrambled eggs, quiche, fruit parfait and whatever else you want for breakfast – Beacher has it all. They do not serve a full menu during breakfast and brunch hours, so ask your server for details.

Sunset Grill Restaurant

2006 Queen St E, Toronto, ON M4L 1J3

Another all-day breakfast destination – one that has been serving satisfying breakfasts since the 1980s, Sunset Grill has perfected their menu over the years, adding a few fanciful touches, such as the juice that's flown in fresh from Florida daily. Any menu items that don’t sell are axed and nothing is deep-fried. This restaurant delivers great value and quality to Beach locals – and the proof is on the plate!

Garden Gate Restrnt

4
2379 Queen St E, Toronto, ON M4E 1H5

The oldest all-day breakfast place in the Beach, Garden Gate sells “Goo Foo” – or so the legend suggests – and has become known as The Goof. But there is nothing goofy about their spectacular breakfast menu, with four types of breakfast pig (ham, sausage, bacon, pea meal bacon) and all the staples, such as pancakes, French toast and eggs Benedict. Be sure to try the skewered mushrooms.

Whitlock's Restaurant
