The Best Mac and Cheese in Toronto

The best mac and cheese oozes with melty cheddar and parm atop a bed of baked macaroni. Popularized by the Kraft Dinner days, the art of the gooey pasta casserole has transcended to new heights of homey deliciousness with multi-cheese blends and extra toppings.

Here's the best mac and cheese in Toronto.

The city got its first restaurant dedicated to mac and cheese in 2015 and we haven’t looked back. This Ossington spot comes from the same folks behind the now shuttered Poutini’s and Hawker Bar. Tinfoil-plated macaroni comes loaded with ingredients like blue cheese, pulled pork, and carbonara with pancetta.

Included on the menu of decadent, stick to your ribs food from this Dundas West takeout spot is a five-cheese macaroni that goes in everything. Get it alone, with green onion on top, or inside the grilled cheese or with two pieces of fried chicken.

This brewpub in the Junction takes their mac and cheese by using a mornay sauce made from IPA, cheddar, and a sprinkling of parsley panko. Get the dish with wild mushrooms, a beer-braised short rib, and on rare occasion, lobster.

Texan, halal eats are the specialty at this King West BBQ joint. Flavour combos like butter chicken with smoked gouda knock it out of the park. For something with more kick, try the brisket mac with creamy ancho chipotle sauce.

The Annex’s longstanding pub has moved from its original Mirvish Village location to Bloor Street, but it’s still cooking up its popular mac and cheese with a mix of colby, gruyere, and cheddar. Plus, their dish is served with garlic bread.
