Bus Terminal Family Restaurant

1606 Danforth Ave, Toronto, ON M4C 1H6

This diner has been a fixture on the Toronto breakfast circuit since 1948, and for good reason. While the menu has changed a little since then – adding some international dishes to keep up with the changing neighbourhood – Bus Terminal Diner still retains the same staple diner fare. Breakfast here is a simple affair done right. They have all the standards you’d expect, from bacon and eggs to pancakes and fruit.

Cafe Fiorentina

Main 463 Danforth Ave, Toronto, ON M4K 1P1

If you’re more of a late starter, you might want to check out brunch at this bakery on the Danforth. While they might not satisfy your craving for traditional bacon and eggs, you will find some pretty stunning quiches that will do the trick admirably. Fiorentina really shines with its baked goods. For a unique experience, try the French toast made with brioche and topped with a variety of fruits, whipped cream and maple syrup.

Sunset Grill
