Posted by Liora Ipsum / September 19, 2014

breakfast torontoThe best all day breakfast in Toronto doesn't adhere to a strict cut-off that typically defines morning menus though for this list we're considering all day meaning places that serve breakfast up until at least 3pm daily. Want to eat scrambled eggs or pancakes on a Wednesday afternoon? No problem! Looking for late-night waffles? Try our list of the best late night breakfast or the best 24 hour restaurants instead.

Not Easy. Easy is bland-tasting food with retro-70s atmosphere for people who want to think they're eating at a cool Queen West spot in the 90s. You could do so much better.

Yikes! Easy is HORRIBLE. Bland, over-priced, and the service is seriously lacking. Cardinal Rule (across the street on Roncy) is waaaay better. Delicious food (latkes are divine), super friendly staff, and low key. Come on BlogTO, Easy is SO 1990.

Mitzi's is great! Very Cozy and relaxing. It's in a residential area, so it's very quiet too!

Still good though. I love good average priced breakfast or brunch. THe Sunset Grill on Dundas west was the same, but it had its charm and prices were right.

Steve's Restaurant should be listed, but they are above the 401 on Bathurst and BlogTO is scared of anything above Bloor Street.

How'd the Tulip and †he mile long lineups for hungover east enders not get included? Or the grease filled Wexford?

Sunset Grill! Seriously?? I fear that McDonald's would be on this list had they served breakfast until 3pm.

Also, so many amazing places north of Bloor which didn't get mentioned, which I believe is also in Toronto... way to go BlogTO.

My fave is Sunny Morning on Yonge south of St. Clair except that since it closes at 3pm it's not all day, darn it.
