Breakfast Face-Off 2007

By Bryhanna Greenough

Ah, breakfast. Where would we be without it?

Hungry and grouchy, most likely.

Not only is it the most important meal of the day, but breakfast is also the cheapest meal to eat out. And nothing beats hot buttery toast, eggs done to spec, and a good, bottomless cup of joe to get rid of that hangover you’ve been carrying around with you like a dead albatross.

This year we scouted out 20 of our favourite spots to grab a hearty breakfast in the city. The comparisons are all based on the traditional breakfast—which can vary—but in most incarnations includes two eggs, hash browns, bacon or ham or sausage or tomato, and two slices of buttered toast.

Yum!
