5 stars (out of 5)
The Senator is my favourite place in Toronto for breakfast, and I’ve been to a lot! A disclaimer, though…I only ever have the same thing…Eggs and Onions! Comes with beans, home fries and challah toast like the other brekkies.
People have referred to this place as a diner. Don’t think of one of those 50’s metallic and chrome versions with sparkly vinyl booths, though, think of 30’s or 40’s film noir versions with lots of wood, and detectives with fedoras.
The only weakness is the coffee, which is mediocre at best. Have a latte or espresso instead. Great ambiance and history. Go early on a weekend.
