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.


  1. I would probably find another place to eat myself, all told.

  2. That's too bad it was disappointing especially for the cost. The number of mistakes is definitely odd as well. I don't think I'd be going back or recommending this one either.

  3. Theres always a risk in trying new places but sometimes you find gems! Cheers from Carole's Chatter

  4. That sounds rather high for the food you ordered. Sorry it wasn't up to par!

  5. I love a good breakfast; we just found a terrific breakfast place on our trip to Cape Cod- The Keltic Kitchen.

    1. Yes, I read your very tasty post! You mentioned Irish bacon at the Kelltic Kitchen which left me drooling.

  6. That is a little pricey for breakfast, and even more disappointing because the food didn't live up to expectations.

  7. That is expensive for breakfast, especially one that was so badly served up. Eggs especially shouldn't be so hard to serve right.
