Brunch Toronto

The top 5 BBQ brunch in Toronto

A BBQ brunch will be an upgrade to your next plate of bacon and eggs at these Toronto smokehouses that get an early start on weekends. These restaurants are home to meaty morning foods like brisket hash and smoked duck pancakes.

Here are my picks for the top BBQ brunch in Toronto.

Barque
The smokehouse on Roncy is a popular brunch destination and with a menu of smoked duck pancakes, cornbread and brisket benedicts, and scrambled eggs with smoked short ribs, it's really no mystery why. Not to be missed is the Caesar.

Stockyards
Breakfast is a available daily but brunch is only served on Sundays from 9am to 2:45pm. The menu offers brisket tostadas, buttermilk biscuits smothered in sausage gravy with eggs, and a dish called, The Dirty Bird featuring fried chicken with bacon and cheddar sandwiched between a Belgian waffle and topped with gravy and a sunny egg.

Big Crow
BBQ bacon caesar cocktails are the best way to start brunch at this backyard BBQ joint on Dupont. Choose from pork belly and eggs, a hot smoked salmon platter, and even slabs of baby back ribs should you wake up ravenous.

Greenwood Smokehouse
This smokehouse on The Danforth touts itself as an ally to vegetarians, which somehow seems contradictory. The brunch menu will help you understand; standard two egg breakfasts, huevos rancheros, and breakfast poutine are advertised in meat-free form, which can be beefed up with add-ons like house smoked bacon, brisket or pulled pork.

Aft
The BBQ joint in Riverside is home to a Southern style brunch menu that boasts a brisket hash, along with a Kentucky hot brown. The Hoppin John is a local fave featuring smoked and shredded ham hock with simmered tomatoes and blacks-eyed peas topped with a fried egg, avocado and tortilla chips.
