Top 5 Places to Eat in Streetsville


Published June 24, 2015 at 2:04 pm


When it comes to food, Streetsville has it all. From high-end Italian to more shawarma joints than you would expect as well as some of the best date and breakfast restaurants in the city. Streetsville has more than 30 different restaurants to choose from. You can get everything from grilled cheese to cupcakes to burgers to, of course, shawarma. Streetville is a nice, quaint place to go on a date — no matter if your budget is for a roti or falafel plate or Certified Black Angus Prime Rib.

Here are the top 5 you should try Streetsville:

5 – Roti Vybz

The newest kid on the block and the one with the most flavour is Roti Vybz. The location is so obscure that the success of it would have to rely on the food itself and there’s no doubt that the word of its existence will travel fast because they serve some kick-ass oxtail (as seen in the photo above) and especially because the food is made with soul by their executive chef who is a seasoned veteran, known as Chef Mikey. Unique for: The first and only West Indian joint in Streetsville that serves high quality West Indian cuisine using local ingredients. The oxtail and goat are Canadian raised and their (Halal) chicken comes from Sargent Farms, a local family owned business. Roti Vybz also delivers and you can conveniently place your orders for delivery using their online portal.

4 – Osmow’s

Osmow’s is the best shawarma joint in Streetsville and that says a lot since there are 7 establishments that serve it. The OG of all the Osmow’s is right in here in Streetsville. These guys know how to do it right. When you order your shawarma, it is shaved off the spit and grilled for some extra seasoning before going in the pita. They have a pretty cool way of setting up the pita bread, too. It’s like they take two pitas and combine them together to give you the super wrap. Origami with pitas! At the end of the day, the chicken shawarma was the best tasting in the city with a perfect balance of seasoning in the meat, fresh toppings and heat. It does get pretty busy at lunch, but I would rather wait for a great shawarma than one from Tupperware anyday. 

3 – Cagneys

Gus and the late Tom Lassos established Cagney’s Casual Family Dining restaurant in 1974. It’s an iconic Mississauga landmark and a Streetsville gem that’s home to their famed signature Caesar salad. It was also a hot spot in its heyday and at one point had a nightclub on the lower level.  Forty years later, Alexander Lassos (Gus’s son) has taken the reins and used his lifetime of experience in the family business to develop a completely new dining concept.  Five months and about $1.2 million dollars later, Alexander’s dream restaurant is complete: Cagneys Restaurant and Winebar.

2 – Bobby’s

With dishes like the 1/2 pounder, Big Bobby, Weekender and Steak & Eggs, you can count on Bobby’s Hideaway to offer meaty, full-sized breakfast meals that are rich in protein, along with all of the heavy carbohydrates to match it. On a slightly lighter note, Bobby’s also offers omelettes, egg’s Benny’s, waffles, and pancakes. They also have 13 interesting side plate options such as peameal bacon, and spicy italian sausage. Voted Streetsville’s most popular breakfast restaurant for 5 years, this local hotspot serves up great family recipes. Sundays are a mad mess of church-goers and locals, so be sure to wake up extra early to avoid line ups.

1 – Goodfellas

Once you walk in, you can tell this place did not spare a dime. It looks like you are walking into a rustic Italian home to have some authentic Italian grub. Goodfellas In Streetsville is Mississauga’s very first restaurant offering authentic Neapolitan wood oven pizza. The menu offers authentic Romano pizza and homemade pastas which are all freshly made in-house. The Maccheroni alla Carbonara pasta dish includes pancetta, egg yolks, pecorino romano, and black pepper. The menu also includes appetizers, salads, fish and meat entrees and desserts. The mozzarealla di bufala and parmigiano-reggiano cheeses are some of the ingredients they use that are directly imported from Italy. Goodfellas boasts an extensive Italian wine selection which was specifically chosen to pair beautifully with the dishes on the menu. This place has a small patio that overlooks the new Streetsville Square, so if you are lucky enough you can catch a free show from your seat.
