The Best Breakfast Sandwiches in Toronto

Whether it's a grab-and-go weekday breakfast or a lazy Sunday hangover cure, the breakfast sandwich is always a good idea. There's just no beating the combination of gooey cheese and savoury meat (or veggies) tucked in beside a layer of fluffy or runny eggs, all on a carb-y base that provides the comfort and nourishment you need to kick-start your morning. Here are five of Toronto's best, each with their own standout elements.

Gold Standard

Gold Standard Breakfast Sandwich

Gold Standard Breakfast Sandwich

This sandwich spot has locations in Roncesvalles and Parkdale and is, indeed, the gold standard for a delicious breakfast sammie. A toasted English muffin is spread with hot sauce and creamy aioli, then stuffed with cheesy scrambled eggs and bacon (or kale for vegetarians) and pickles (yes, just trust them).

Aunties & Uncles

Breakfast Pocket

Breakfast Pocket

The breakfast "pocket", as it's affectionately named at this nostalgic joint, consists of spiced focaccia with pillows of scrambled eggs, peameal bacon, sweet caramelized onions and a generous spread of Dijon to finish it off.

3

Egg Bae

Bae Don’t Kale My Vibe Sandwich

Bae Don’t Kale My Vibe Sandwich

Tucked away in Kensington Market, Egg Bae is Toronto's go-to spot for gourmet egg sandwiches. The menu offers options with fried or perfectly soft scrambled eggs, plus toppings like Muenster cheese, pickled shallots, house-cured salmon and even potato chips. Oh, and don't forget their signature tangy "bae sauce"!

4

Lazy Daisy's Cafe

Rise & Shine

Rise & Shine

Served on a ridiculously fluffy, house-made buttermilk biscuit, this sandwich from the beloved east end cafe is made with free-range eggs, aged white cheddar and a choice of smoked bacon or avocado and tomato.

5

Black Cat Espresso Bar

Black Cat's Breakfast Sandwich

Black Cat's Breakfast Sandwich

This coffee shop serves up a breakfast sandwich gem, featuring an extra-crispy English muffin spread with mayo and topped with a whole egg, real cheddar and sticky-sweet bacon. Veggie folks can opt for tomato and basil instead, but regardless of how you order it, this messy, crunchy delight checks all the boxes.
