At the OG Claremont location of this chain, Ontario veal is pounded thin, lightly breaded, topped with house tomato sauce and piled onto pillowy, fresh-baked kaiser rolls. With or without optional sautéed onions, rapini, provolone and more, this one is a perennial favourite for good reason.

Open 24 hours a day, this staunchly Italian bakery and hot table restaurant in North York and the Castlefield Design District can settle hunger pangs as soon as they hit. Among a number of savoury items, veal is the choice to make — especially crammed into a fresh-baked bun, alongside cheese, sweet tomato sugo and seasoned mushrooms.

Dundas West has been choosing this sandwich spot for more than 40 years, thanks to a menu stacked with traditional choices, each made the old-fashioned way. Golden veal cutlets meet kaiser rolls and house sauce in the team's no-nonsense veal sandwich. Make yours spicy, loaded with rapini, mozzarella and jalapeños if you like things fancy.

Built on a crustier bun than most, the veal sandwich at this Annex café is a mouth-pleasing combo of myriad textures. Order it fully loaded and add the flavours of zippy tomato sauce, caramelized onions, mushrooms, sweet peppers, eggplant, pesto and hot sauce to the experience.

When the options at St. Lawrence Market overwhelm, the veal sandwich at this takeout spot is a deliciously safe refuge. Available with or without eggplant, the veal parmigiana sandwich is layered with signature sauce and parmesan cheese. Throw some mozzarella into the mix for the gooiest version around.

Classic dishes at an approachable price point are this Etobicoke restaurant's stock in trade. Available at lunch, the team's veal sandwiches can be ordered as is or, in the case of the Spicy Sicilian, with a litany of add-ons, from roasted peppers and fontina to capocollo and sundried tomato mayo.

Sugo

This Bloordale Village spot enthrals diners with red sauce, al dente pasta, lashings of parm and a seemingly infinite repertoire of Italian-American classics. Don't let mozz sticks and super-sized meatballs distract you from veal parmigiana sandwiches perfected with melty mozzarella, house-made sauce, a squishy sesame bun and the finesse to expertly combine them all.

Look past the scads of cream-filled, sugar-dusted, chocolate-dipped pastries at this Rogers Road bakery and find a hot table with simple veal sandwiches. Made with fresh bread, tangy tomato sauce, and enough meat to eat like a meal, they're the definition of satisfying.

With more than 50 years of experience under their belts, the Bozzo family knows what its customers want. Follow the lunchtime crowd to South Etobicoke's best hot table, where tender veal partners with sweet peppers, cheese and fresh-baked bread for the perfect precursor to the team's wealth of cookies, cakes and cannoli.
