GG is a Toronto institution. This location was the first in Toronto, and opened over 40 years ago!
That said, don’t rush over to try it out. Come to think of it, we didn’t. It’s about number 65 on our weekly breakfast tour.
They’ve got everything you need for breakfast – eggs, omelettes (it was Omelette Monday!), pancakes, hotcakes (which weren’t selling very well), griddle cakes, flapjacks, waffles, crepes and various fried meats – it’s just all pretty average to below average fare. The “home fries” were those frozen tater tot thingies. ‘Nuff said? Not quite. The coffee was horrible at $2.09, especially compared to last week’s amazing $1.97 version at The Canadian Pie Company, and the toast was lame.
I can’t imagine any reason to go back.
