The top 30 cheap breakfast in Toronto by neighbourhood
Cheap breakfast in Toronto are a go-to on weekdays, and an excellent alternative to extravagant (and expensive) brunches. This collection of cafes, greasy spoons and diners stick to the basics; bagels, eggs, bacon - they may not be fancy, but they're delicious all the same.
Here are my picks for where to get a cheap breakfast in Toronto by neighbourhood.
Karine's in the Village by the Grange serves the most important meal of the day in combos for just $5. Possibly the best deal in town, get an overflowing breakfast plate featuring eggs, garlic fries, toast, fruit, and optional bacon.
BLOOR WEST VILLAGE
The breakfast special at the Bloor Jane Restaurant costs only $7 and features a pair of eggs any style, with a choice of bacon, ham or sausages, home fries, toast and coffee. Cheaper still, opt for an omelette priced between $5.50 and $7.
Murgatroid on Parliament makes a mean breakfast sandwich ($5.30), on an English muffin with eggs, cheese, bacon or sausage, mayo and sprouts. Hungrier than that? Try a plate of eggs, bacon or sausage, and potatoes or english muffin for $7.50.
The breakfast menu at Dairy Freeze is served from 9 a.m. until noon and features staples like western sandwiches for $4.20, cheese omelettes for $5.20, and two egg breakfasts complete with bacon, ham or sausage for $5.95.
Gayley's Cafe isn't fancy, and that's exactly why it's great. Complete breakfasts cost $7.50, while morning staples like porridge with warm milk and brown sugar sells for $4.50, and a bagel with cream cheese costs only $3.
All day breakfast combos start at $6 at Donlands Restaurant. Have eggs fried, scrambled or poached with home fries and toast with a choice of coffee or tea included. For 50Â˘ more, make it a meaty meal with four strips of bacon or three sausage links.
Find Heidi's Deli in the PATH serving up grab-and-go breakfasts from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. Sausage, eggs and home fries will only set you back $4.69, while French toast for $3.20 is a steal.
Two handed breakfasts at Locomotive Coffee entail Montreal style bagels with cheese ($3.25), BLT bagel ($6), and fried egg sandwiches ($6.79) topped with house cured bacon, cheddar, tomato, and house mayo.
On par with the prices at KOS but better quality, Average Joe's serves up hearty breakfasts for $7.50 featuring baked eggs with salad home fries and a knob of baguette. Breakfast sandwiches loaded with a egg and cheese, fresh veg, and optional sausage or bacon range in price between $3.85 and $5.85.
Breakfast specials at Olympos/Crowbar are available until 11 a.m. and include a choice of bacon, ham or sausage with eggs for $6.95. Less expensive still are the fried egg sandwiches priced at $5 and up.
While the weekend brunch at Portland Variety is a lavish (and pricey) affair, the cafe's weekday breakfasts are much more wallet friendly. Steel cut oats for $6, and, bacon, egg, and cheddar croissants for $6.50 are among the standouts.
Chef George does classic two egg breakfast with a choice of meat, home fries, toast and fruit for $5 before 10:30am (+$1 after). For a loonie or two more indulge in Filipino specialties like two eggs with longanisa ($5.99) served with garlic fried rice.
WEST QUEEN WEST
UFO Restaurant is a greasy spoon that serves pancake breakfasts for $5.25, and two egg breakfasts with two eggs, bacon, ham or sausage, home fries, toast and coffee all for $5.75 before 11 a.m.
YONGE & LAWRENCE
The early bird gets the worm (er, saves a few bucks) at Hazel's Diner where the all day breakfast (regularly $9) is $6 between 7 a.m. and 11 a.m. The dine-in only deal includes two eggs, bacon, home fries and toast.
