September 2014 - Toronto ON
We tried a "new to us" breakfast place on Dundas W at Ossington on Tuesday. It is touted as a classic Toronto eatery and is open 24 hours a day.
Funny enough I first heard of it when it was featured on Guy Fieri’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives on the Food Network.
Unlike many of the reviews I read our server was very pleasant even when she got the order wrong.
I ordered the following only to be told that the mushrooms or tomato would be extra as they are the vegetarian option.
EGGY IN A BASKET Buttered Toast + Melted Old Cheddar with a Fried Egg in the Middle. Choice of Housemade Maple Sausage, Strip Bacon, Peameal Bacon, Fried Portobello Mushrooms or Grilled Tomato
single 8.5 double 10.5
I had the single and asked for mushrooms and tomato. Sausages were delicious as were the potatoes and mushrooms. Toast wasn't buttered and the egg was hard. Grilled tomato (to me) is usually a quarter or half grilled not slices.
John chose the following and also said his eggs were hard even though he had asked for easy over. His was also delayed as the server had placed the order for sausages (on the check) rather than the peameal bacon that he had clearly ordered.
THE STANDARD Breakfast Two Eggs any style with choice of Housemade Maple Sausage, Strip Bacon, Peameal Bacon, Fried Portobello Mushrooms or Grilled Tomato 9.5 > ADD Egg 1–
Coffee was not free and our bill for this meal was $36, a little pricey in my peameal mind.
We both said it was nothing to write home about and wouldn't be back.
