If you want to hit this Fisherman’s Drive hotspot on a Saturday or Sunday, be prepared to wait a few minutes for a table. John’s Family Restaurant, a tasty establishment known for serving massive portions of breakfast, brunch and Greek and Italian fare, is a casual restaurant run by friendly servers that’s augmented by a filling and delicious menu. While a lot of more casual restaurants tend to serve decidedly ordinary Benedicts, John’s offers a delicious smoked salmon Benny that’s heavy on both fish and flavour. The hollandaise is also subtle, memorable and delicious. As far as staples go, the eggs, bacon, sausages and pancakes are perfectly prepared and wonderfully filling. The breakfast potatoes are also exceptional, as they’re comprised of the real deal–no store-bought cubes here!

Fresh. Spicy. Vegetarian. Backyard dosa parties. These all very descriptive of this Brampton favourite, Annalakshmi at Main and Bovaird! Hidden in a plaza with Bluenotes and Suzy Shier outlets, we can’t blame you if you didn’t even know that this spot existed. But we would blame you if you didn’t go out of your way to try it! Annalakshmi is an absolute gem in Brampton that serves up fresh, spicy, authentic South Indian cuisine. Dosas are their specialty here – below is a spinach dosa with aloo masala (a spicy potato mixture), served with fresh chutney, and I devoured it, it was mouth-watering. But dosas aren’t the only things you’ll find on the menu. Annalakshmi is also great for their utthapam (you can even get seven mini ones and try all of the flavours), four kinds of idly, corn soup, four kinds of rice including classic lemon rice and tamarind rice, and tiffins (typically include Indian bread and some sort of curry). Meals at Annalakshmi are so comforting and delicious that they taste homemade, and yes, they do host backyard dosa parties where you can watch them make your dosas before you eat them.
This greasy spoon and family resto at Steeles and Dixie is a truck stop you do not want to miss. Wally’s has got the hangover breakfast or even the brunch with your family you’re craving in a large portion size from 7 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday-Friday and 8 a.m.-8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Try the big Wally breakfast if you’re really hungry, it comes with three eggs, homefries (you must try their homefries! Potatoes with both soft and crispy pieces throughout), and toast, plus bacon, ham, and sausage, and your choice of pancakes or french toast. Wally’s also has breakfast sandwiches, they make a mean eggs florentine (their eggs were perfect and hollandaise very creamy), and they even have waffles – yum! We also can’t forget that their service is on point. Wally’s is a place where you can actually go, have breakfast, stay for lunch (they’ve got souvlaki!), and never leave. We must warn you, though, the hangover cure is real here.
Here’s a fun option for the fam – head to an Indian buffet! Brar’s is a veggie restaurant, but they have an abundance of delicious Indian comfort food that’ll satisfy the entire fam – and, the kids (and you!) will have fun choosing their meal from the buffet tables. Samosas, curry, and sweets galore await you and the fam at Brar’s, a flavour experience you won’t want to miss. Visiting Brar’s at Bovaird and the 410 will definitely shake up your typical family meal. Their buffet is easy to navigate and the staff is quite helpful, and the wide variety of options makes it easy for everyone to find something they like. Brar’s sits at a reasonable price of about $25 for their buffet on a Saturday or a Sunday night. On weekdays that drops to $15 for lunch.
Located at 15 Main Street North, this resto boasts a great location and actually sits in a historical building (they had to renovate the space before opening). The restaurant boasts a main floor bar and lounge, a second floor meeting and dining room and the aforementioned rooftop patio (which features a bar). The food offerings are diverse (which is ideal in a city as multicultural as Brampton) and affordable and the resto also boasts a simple wine list, good quality spirits and a mix of local and international beers. We highlight recommend the fries, the fish tacos, the mac and cheese, and…well, pretty much anything on their menu!
