Here are the best breakfast sandwiches in Toronto.
Open daily from 8am, this Leslieville sandwich shop is devoted to all things bacon, meaning the entire menu is especially breakfast friendly. Go for the Hogtown Sandwich ($7.50), which features classic peameal on a bun, but be sure to add on a fried egg and a slice of cheddar for good measure.
Excellent espresso and a wide variety of breakfast sandwiches make this Queen and Spadina cafe a daily destination for early risers. Choose between ready-made ham and brie croissants, scrambled egg burritos, or biscuits topped with bacon, egg, and cheddar. Have your order heated up to order, then stay and linger over coffee, or hurry back to the office if you must.
For those who don't consider bacon essential to breakfast, the egg sandwich ($6) at this organic cafe in The Junction will certainly satisfy. Sandwiched between two slices of gluten-free toast, enjoy a baked egg dressed up with spinach, grilled tomato, raw Quebec cheddar, and a smear of sun-dried tomato pesto.
The smokehouse and larder on St. Clair offers a handful of handheld options in the a.m., but the standout is most certainly their eponymous sandwich, the Stockyard ($8). Start with a choice of house smoked bacon or county sage sausage on a buttermilk biscuit, then pile on aged cheddar and a glorious deep-fried poached egg.
The cafe in Little India improves on the egg 'n cheese sandwich by using free-range eggs, cheddar and Mennonite smoked bacon when crafting its sandwiches on buttery home-style biscuit ($7.25). A veggie-friendly version pairs an egg with avocado, tomato and cheddar - or have the best of both by ordering the lovechild sandwich, the Free Son Of A Rise ($8.27).
Most of the sandwiches at this chain of bakeries are only offered after 11am, but those looking for breakfast are still in luck. The bakery offers their famous BLT, along with a sandwich made with sliced hard-boiled eggs, bacon, lettuce and tomato for $5.65, or $6.20 with cheese.
This tricked-out gas station on Queen East makes it easy to refuel first thing in the morning. Choose a maple glazed peameal BLT ($5.30), veggie-packed egg whites on multigrain ($4.86), or the Morning Classic ($4.86), with a fried egg, fresh tomato, and aged cheddar on a toasted golden bun (add bacon for $2).
The bakery on The Danforth opens early every day (except Monday), and among the many fresh-from-the-oven attractions, the breakfast sandwiches are a must while they last in the mornings. Crafted on house buns, look forward to seasonal veggie variations or thick slabs of peameal paired with eggs and cheese.
