The top 10 new restaurants for breakfast in Toronto

The top new restaurants for breakfast can fill you up in the morning throughout the week - not just weekends. From waffles and pancakes to steel cut oats and granola, the options available at these spots range from healthy and gluten-free to indulgent.

Here are my picks for the top new restaurants for breakfast in Toronto.

Cafe Neon
The new outpost on West Queen West serves all day breakfasts week-round. In addition to the excellent Sam James Cut Coffee, you'll find a lineup of a.m. essentials including Greek yoghurt, granola, oatmeal pots, egg-centric dishes and breakfast sandwiches.

Ashdale Brunch and Espresso
Open with house-made apple fritters at this Leslieville joint, then move on to classic egg dishes like French toast with bacon, or chimichurri pork and eggs. Breakfast is served daily from 8 a.m..

Impact Kitchen
The lofty eatery on King East is focused on clean eating, and it opens at 7:30 a.m. on weekdays. Get your morning caffeine fix at the espresso bar or stock up on fresh pressed juices made in house. Protein-packed breakfast options like the BLT bowl and the energy oatmeal will keep you fuelled until lunch.

Kupfert & Kim
The newly opened vegan eatery on Spadina starts mornings right with house-made granola, steel cut oats, gluten-free waffles and brown rice congee. Take it to go, or have a seat in the dining room.

Yaya
This sunny spot in Leslieville deals in breakfast food all day and every day. The menu features plates of spicy Mexican eggs, brioche stuffed with Canadian bacon and cheese, and breakfast-style grilled cheese sandwiches.

Bugigattolo
The compact Italian kitchen in Liberty Village caters to local clientele streaming in for work at nearby offices and studios. Daytime selections include a frittata, the PLT (prosciutto, lettuce, tomato), and the simple but delicious Uova affogato ($8.95), an open faced sandwich featuring sricotta and nduja smeared onto ciabatta and topped with a poached egg.

Bar Raval
The tapas bar on College Street isn't just a great place for late night cocktails and snacks. It opens at 8 a.m. every morning to serve up strong espresso-based drinks accompanied by doughnuts, bocadillo and more.

Hollandaise Diner
The East Danforth is home to this all-day breakfast destination that specializes in egg Benedicts, mix and match pancakes, and other eggy standards.

Pancer's Original Deli
The Jewish deli on Bathurst can be counted on for breakfast daily until 1 p.m. Find western omelettes and yogurt parfaits listed on the menu alongside eggs paired with fried salami, baby beef, or pastrami.

Crave Healthy Habits
This take-out counter in the Richmond Adelaide Centre in the PATH offers hearty breakfast options (weekdays only) including yogurt parfaits, rolled oats in bowls with pecans, strawberry avocado puree and fruit, and sweet bowls of quinoa with house-made yogurt and lemon curd.
