Breakfast Sandwich Smackdown: Our Search for the City’s Best Brunch on a Bun
Dundas Park Kitchen’s updated sausage McMuffin is meaty, cheesy and sloppy enough to conquer the bleariest of morning fogs. The real secret, though, is the trio of sauces: spicy Kozlik’s mustard, garlicky chimichurri and a chunky relish made with sweet sautéed onions and whole kernels of corn. Piled high on an English muffin, the sandwich walks a fine line between breakfast and burger—which is part of the appeal. $7.50. 2066 Dundas St. W., 647-351-4793
The Stockyards on St. Clair Avenue West fries more than just chicken. For brunch, poached eggs are dipped in buttermilk, dredged in cayenne-spiced flour and crisped in hot oil until the outsides turn golden but the yolks are still oozy enough to saturate a flaky biscuit bun. The sandwich comes topped with sage sausage, house-cured bacon or, for the truly intrepid, both. $7. 699 St. Clair Ave. W., 416-658-9666
Chef Graham Pratt at The Gabardine is particular about his scrambled eggs: he likes them soft and a little wet, but never spongy. Eased onto a toasted English muffin and topped with gooey white cheddar and tangy onion jam, the veg-friendly sandwich is savoury, sweet and surprisingly light. You hardly even miss the pork. $9. 372 Bay St., 647-352-3211

You missed the breakfast sandwhich at Locomotive, hands down the best (at least in the west).
Dundas Park Kitchen is well deserving of this. The Breakfast Sausage Sandwich is only one of many outstanding sandwiches on a stand out menu!
Emma’s Country kitchen on St. Clair, much like the Stockyards to the west, it’s a homemade biscuit, egg cheese and homemade sage & onion sausage. Wonderfully inexpensive as well!
Rashers Full Monty is pheom. Fried egg, rashers bacon, fried tomatoes, mushrooms & that homemade brown sauce. Messy delicious. Hands down, the best (at least in the east) ;)
The Dundas Park Kitchen sandwich looks great, but unfortunately their hours make it hard to get breakfast. They’re close on weekends and only open at 11 during the week. Hopefully they expand their hours so I can check this place out!
Went to Dundas Park Kitchen this morning to try its acclaimed breakfast sandwich only to be told it doesn’t open until 11:00. Now I see the comment below that also states the times it’s open: so be warned!!!
However Roncesvalles has some good spots: thank goodness!!!
wholeheartedly agree with this choice! I have had this sandwich several times, at the Stop Farmers’ Market on Saturdays and at their shop for lunch. It’s really that good!
B.O.B sandwiches at The Hub (Chrsitie area) is amazing!
