The Best All-Day Breakfast in Toronto

The best all-day breakfast in Toronto serves up morning staples like eggs or pancakes well into the afternoon. Nothing beats having the option to eat bacon and waffles in a restaurant at 2 p.m. (particularly on a weekday), and these places exist to help satisfy that urge.
