The Best Lobster Roll in Toronto

The best lobster roll in Toronto is at the luxe end of the fast food scale and is usually more affordable than a lobster dinner. Some might argue that the simple sandwich needs nothing more than chilled lobster dressed with just the slight hint of mayo. Toronto kitchens are quite respectful, with only a few adding flourishes (perhaps a strip of bacon) and most let the sweet and succulent crustacean shine.

Here are the best lobster rolls in Toronto.
