Top 5 Brunch Spots in Mississauga
They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day and I concur -- especially weekend brunch. Brunch offers more than just the standard every day breakfast fare that typically serves to simply satisfy your morning hunger or take care of that hangover.
Brunch is about the experience. It's a meal you tend to savour, enjoy with others and it's something to look forward to on the weekends.
Here are the Top 5 brunch spots in Mississauga:
5 - Glenerin Inn
The Sunday brunch is an elaborate brunch buffet that runs from 11 am to 2 pm. You can dine on the items from the chef-manned carving station as well as homemade soups, roasted vegetables, the feature entree, staple breakfast items including bacon & sausage, Belgian waffles, a selection of smoked fish and seafood, salads, a variety of cheese, French pastries and desserts. There are five rooms with amazing views of the estate grounds and a ravine that lines the back of the property. Reservations are recommended, and you can request which room you'd like to have brunch in provided it is not being used for a private function.
The Breakwater Restaurant is located in the Waterside Inn, a boutique hotel situated in the south side of Mississauga in Port Credit. The airy and expansive dining room is a gorgeous space with high ceilings and majestic decor that pays homage to traditional fine dining and most certainly adds to the experience of Sunday brunch. There is a chef-manned carvery serving hand-carved prime cuts of meat, an omelette and waffle station, a hot lunch table, an antipasto bar and a dessert and pastry table. This takes Sunday brunch to the next level.
3 - Kravingz
Lissa and Damian are a husband and wife team who are self-proclaimed foodies and steadfast local supporters who love their community in Clarkson - an undiscovered area of the city which has a number of gems including theirs. The restaurant is known for its made-from-scratch menu which supports local suppliers. They source a number of the ingredients for their dishes from local bakeries and suppliers. The resto offers the Polski Benedict (potato placki is a Polish potato pancake served with smoked salmon or peameal bacon, poached eggs and house-made hollandaise), Chicken N’ Waffles (crispy fried chicken served with bacon and jalapeno waffles, bacon dressing and coleslaw) and The Islander (jerk corned beef hash, corn and cheddar grits and poached eggs) and more.
2 - Capra's Kitchen
Look out Mississauga! Chef Massimo Capra and his signature 'stache and big personality are in our city. Chef Massimo recently opened a restaurant called Capra's Kitchen in his hometown of Mississauga in the former Villa La Bella space along Lakeshore Rd. in the Clarkson neighbourhood. Chef Massimo is an accomplished celebrity chef, TV personality, author and Saugaboy who has an extensive resume. Starting from the ground up, his career began when he first started toiling in kitchens in Italy. He made his way to Toronto in the early 80s and worked in a few notable fine dining establishments in the city. His brand new restaurant offers lunch, dinner and weekend brunch that features some eggs benny that are heavy on the porcetta. You also don’t want to miss the pancakes or French toast!
Recently, fans of Huevos Gourmet--an absolutely incredible Mexican breakfast and brunch restaurant--were stunned to hear that the restaurant was leaving its cozy Mimico location to relocate to parts unknown. Later, we rejoiced when we learned that Huevos Gourmet chose to relocate to Port Credit. The restaurant, which opened in Feb. 2020, took shape in the old Dunk n’ Dip location on Lakeshore Road East in the city’s east end--not terribly far from where it was located before. Along with huevos rancheros (which is made all the more special with a heaping helping of chorizo on top), the restaurant also serves a ton of Eggs Benedict dishes (including a Mexican Benedict), Mexican omelettes, breakfast burritos, crepes, French toast and more. The Mexican Benedict (available with regular and vegan chorizo) is absolutely to die for.
