The top 10 steak and eggs in Toronto
Steak and eggs is a meaty start to any morning Toronto. This indulgent breakfast is often overlooked for pork-ier pastures (this is Hogtown after all) but you'll find top notch takes on this classic diner dish at menus across the city, from old school grill houses to upscale brunch destinations.
Here are my picks for the top steak and eggs in Toronto.
The Nap Time Special ($18) on the weekend brunch menu at this Queen West eatery features a 6oz dry-aged striploin steak with two eggs done any way, plus thick slabs of bacon with rustic bread and a choice of mixed greens, duck fat home fries or pad thai fries.
Parts & Labour
This Parkdale establishment is both the cause and the cure of hangovers in Toronto. Party it up at the Shop on a Friday, then return the next day for a plate of steak and eggs ($19). Each order features a grilled flank with fried green tomatoes and a kale salsa verde.
Hit up this Cuban restaurant on Roncy for one of the most reasonably priced and over-packed plates of steak and eggs ($14). The generous portion features a steak with chimichurri sauce and sunny side up eggs accompanied by sides of rice, beans, tostones, and slaw.
The go-to Filipino restaurant on Queen West does Bistek and eggs for $15. The brunch dish features a flat iron steak with soy citrus jus paired with a poached egg, coconut polenta, salad and garlic fried rice.
The French bistro on Wellington does Steak Grille, Oeuf Ă Cheval ($18.95) which translates to a grilled centre-cut filet topped with a fried egg and accompanied by mushrooms and frites.
This neighbouring restaurant on Wellington is the place to go for a coffee and chili-rubbed skirt steak served with a pair of organic duck eggs ($24). Home fries are included for your a.m. carb fix, plus you get a crunchy heirloom radish salad to brighten it up.
With two Toronto locations -- one at the base of Roncesvalles, the other in the heart of Little Italy -- here you'll find a menu featuring steak and eggs ($18.50) for breakfast week-round. Order your eggs any style to be had alongside a 6oz grass-fed steak served with grilled tomato, toasted baguette, and a choice of salad or homefries.
The swanky Japanese restaurant in Yorkville does yakiniku-style steak and eggs ($29) featuring bincho-grilled skirt steak with a sweet and tangy soy-based sauce accompanied by caramelized shallots and roasted cherry tomatoes.
If meat and potatoes at brunch are your thing, head to this retro-ish diner where the rosy-centred steak and eggs ($17) is served with mushrooms, caramelized onions, spuds and toast.
No list of steak and eggs would be complete without a nod to this old school steakhouse-turned-diner on the east side. This place isn't fancy but $15.95 gets you a 10oz sirloin with a couple of eggs and home fries. Eat up.
