Rosedale’s renowned sandwich spot ups the ante on every sammie, including the basic BLT. For $8.25 you’ll get a pesto mayo pancetta with arugula and roasted tomato. It comes with your pick of two sauces and the option to deck it out further with extra toppings.

Lazy Daisy's Cafe

Cozy and homey is this Gerrard Street cafe’s specialty and the same applies to their list of daily sandwiches. Choose between sourdough or multigrain for your meal of Mennonite smoked bacon and mayo, tomato and greens. Add a free-run egg to make it a BELT. Either way, it’s $7.95.

The breakfast sandwiches don’t get fluffier than at Yonge and Dundas’ house of eggs on shokupan. Their Japanese milk bread can hardly contain all this thick-cut bacon, tomato and lettuce, drizzled with housemade ketchup and Egg Club’s secret sauce for $7.40.

Head to Leslieville or the original Distillery District bakery for a sandwich that’s only available on request. This BLT comes with the usual trio of ingredients on a piping Brick Street brioche bun and some sriracha mayo inside.

Bloordale’s favourite purveyor of burgers, baguettes and sandwiches makes a Strip Bacon sandwich that includes a fried egg. Housemade bacon buddies up with charred tomato, lettuce and pickled mustard seed mayo for this BLT.

Avenue Open Kitchen

This decades-old diner does a hearty 6 oz BLT that reads more like a burger but who's really distinguishing between delicious and delicious. It’s $9.95 for their famous thick-cut peameal bacon on a kaiser with lettuce, tomato and mayo. Head to Camden Street for the old-school vibes.
