The Senator

For just a few bucks more than your typical greasy spoon, you can sit down to a priced-right bacon and eggs breakfast and take in a piece of Toronto history at the same time with these three best-of breakfast spots.

Stop by The Senator, the oldest restaurant in Toronto.

Founded in 1929, The Senator is a classy, classic diner with dark wooden booths, checkered floors and a 50s vibe.

For over 55 years, customers have been stepping back in time at Mars Food diner.

Opened in 1951, this family-owned and operated diner serves up greasy goodness at thrifty prices and claims to be the first place in the world to have sold one million muffins.

The Patrician Grill oozes nostalgia too, but in a no frills kind of way.

Established in the late 60s this family-owned and operated diner serves up their affordable breakfast all day, but keep in mind no credit or debit cards; they only take cash.

Delectable Crepes for $5-$9
