Looking for a new brunch option in Mississauga?
This popular and well-established eatery has you covered.
Starting recently on Saturday, July 6, the Wilcox Gastropub now serves weekend brunch every Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
The Wilcox is a one-of-a-kind, multi-level restaurant with a patio on the corner of Hurontario and Eglinton. It's located in the Wilcox House - one of Mississauga’s oldest Heritage Homes built by Amos and Charles Wilcox in 1850 (making it older than Canada!)
The venue's uniqueness comes from its Greek and Gothic detailing as well as its interior decor, which simultaneously invokes a modern vibe while featuring old antique fixtures. The inside is spacious and well-lit due to its glass ceiling.
Over the past few years, The Wilcox has become a culinary hotspot in Mississauga known for its popular menu items, such as the Wilcox Burger and Korean Lasagna, and an array of tasty social plates like the Lobster Poutine ($5 off on Saturdays) and Steak Tartare & Bone Marrow.
The restaurant also has regular weekly promotions, such as half-priced wine on Thursdays and $1 oysters during Buck-a-Shuck on Tuesdays and Thursdays - there's something different to enjoy every day of the week.
However, if you're already familiar with The Wilcox, then the main question on your mind is probably "How good is the brunch menu?"
Luckily for you, the new menu features a variety of dishes, both unique and familiar, that are sure to satisfy your morning (or early afternoon) cravings.
Their Eggs Benedict, described as an all-time favourite for brunch, is made 100% in-house with soft poached eggs, a rosemary focaccia slice, peameal bacon, fresh hollandaise, and served with greens and potato hash.

Who doesn't love a good dish of chicken and waffles? Especially the way The Wilcox prepares it: Crispy chicken thigh and fluffy waffles topped with maple syrup and icing sugar.
Another interesting option is their Bone Marrow dish, described as "a super rustic, decadent marrow served with rough chopped chimichurri and sourdough."
Other great items on The Wilcox's brunch menu include the Steak and Eggs, Avocado Toast, and Lobster Grilled Cheese.

If you're dining with a group, you can make it a fun brunch party with good food and mimosas!
Speaking of which, The Wilcox's cocktail program features several exciting drinks such as the Humo Verde cocktail consisting of Casamigos Mezcal, Cazadores Blanco, lime, basil, thyme, and poblano peppers.
"Tequila and mezcal have been the spirits for the past year," says restaurant owner Joseph Le. "Our take on a nice agave driven drink is a bit spicy, herbaceous, and well-seasoned for the patio."
There's also their new crowd-pleasing Mint Green Tea Lemonade (green tea infused Haku Vodka, honey, lemon, soda, mint) as well as their classic and top-selling Old Fashioned cocktail (Wild Turkey bourbon, raw sugar, and angostura bitters).
The restaurant offers a little something for everyone, balancing out their menu with spirit-driven classics, seasonal funky drinks, and good sours.
Whether it's brunch, cocktails, or one of their other menus, The Wilcox prides itself on constantly pushing the envelope and serving food you won't be able to find at most other eateries.
