Battle Results! Best Breakfast Battle: Mississauga vs. Burlington

Published November 7, 2019 at 9:44 pm


Have you been in the mood for the perfect breakfast and haven’t been quite sure where to go to get it? Since there is no shortage of selection in the GTHA, the choice as to where to dine can be a tough one–especially when great breakfast restaurants are plentiful across cities.

When it comes to excellent breakfast food, every ingredient counts. Are the Eggs Benny perfectly poached? Are the pancakes soft and fluffy? Are the omelettes light, fluffy and delicious? 

Both Mississauga and Burlington are known for their respective food scenes, and both offer a ton of excellent breakfast restaurants—but only one city can have the absolute best hotspots.

So, what places were competing?


Top 5 Breakfast Joints in Mississauga

If you’re in the mood for eggs at 4:00 p.m, you don’t have to drive far to get them. Some all-day breakfast joints that have more than stood the test of time in the city include the iconic Orchard Family Restaurant in Cooksville; the Streetsville mainstay with the hearty portions known as Skyway Jacks; the beloved and long-standing Zet’s restaurant in Malton; a Port Credit gem called Captain Robin’s that’s known for its hugely generous portions and our number one pick; the renowned Streetsville staple that is Bobby’s Hideaway (also note that the brand operates a second location in Port Credit). When you’re in the mood for breakfast, Mississauga has got you covered.


Top 5 Breakfast in Burlington

If you’re looking for breakfast, Burlington has no shortage of restaurants that will make any morning better. If you’re in the mood for a great morning meal, you can check out Eggsactly in the Headon Forest Shopping Centre, the popular and pancake-centric (of course) Stacked Pancake & Breakfast House, the relatively new and on-trend all-day breakfast spot that is Pur & Simple, the traditional and affordable Windmill Restaurant, and our number one pick, the classic and long-standing Russell Williams Restaurant. Although Russell Williams is our number one pick, we know Burlington has a lot to offer hungry diners in the AM.
