Top 5 Hottest Restaurants in Brampton: February 17-23

Here are the 5 hottest restaurants in Brampton for the week of February 17-23, based on the amount of organic page views and searches these restaurants received on

5) Jake’s Boathouse

Jake’s Boathouse is one of Brampton’s oldest restaurants. The legendary ocean-themed bar has been a mainstay in Brampton’s nightlife scene since 1979, when they opened on Bramsteele Road, and according to their website, “beer came in stubby bottles, a Leafs ticket (in the “Greys”) cost $6 and nobody in Brampton had ever heard of Chicken Wings!” Jake’s moved to their tucked away First Gulf and Biscayne location in 1994, specializing mainly in seafood, American dishes, and British pub grub, and outdoing a lot of restaurants in Brampton with their ribs and burgers. Live music has been a draw to Jake’s since they opened, and it’s still a happening spot for good food and good times. Try the buffalo chicken wrap – the chicken is crispy, tangy, has a kick of spice, there’s a good amount of cheese, and the fries are its perfect compliment.

4) Toshi Japanese Restaurant

This spot, while not AYCE, provides amazing sushi at a reasonable price. The food is fantastic and could easily compete with any other Peel Region sushi joint for the title of best Japanese in town. Tracing its roots to humble beginnings in the infamous Shopper’s World, this spot sits up top in the same plaza as the crowned king (Queen) of Shawarma at Hurontario and Bovaird. Do yourself a favor and try this place out. Quality over quantity is sometimes key.

3) Joey’s Deli

This Queen St W resto in downtown Brampton is ideal for a quick and easy breakfast or brunch when you’ve got a bad hankering for eggs or pancakes – all day! They’re open from 8 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday-Friday, and 8 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, and I have one word that describes this place perfectly: options. During the morning, you can grab some cereal, or choose from an all day breakfast option til close, like a breakfast bowl, pancakes, an egg sautee, a breakfast sandwich, a big breakfast with eggs, homefries, toast, and pancakes, eggs benny, omelettes, waffles, pancakes, or even french toast – need I go on? Their food is delicious and their service is on point, too. And check out the icing sugar on their pancakes…together, they’re a winning combo.

2) Onyxx 

In a hidden spot in a plaza at Maritime Ontario Blvd. on Airport, Onyxx is one of the best sports bars in Brampton. What Onyxx might lack in quantity of menu items, they make up for in quality and atmosphere. Several TVs hang around this bar, so it’s a great spot to catch a game, whether you’re seated at their expansive bar, in a cozy lounge area (the booths here can fit groups of ten or more), or at a simple table. Let’s talk food – Onyxx boasts southern- and Caribbean-inspired dishes like Louisiana-style okra, an eight-ounce Jamaican mama burger, a vegan burger bursting with jackfruit, and some classic jerk chicken with rice and peas, jerk sauce, and even some cool slaw. I tried the huge vegan burger, which is topped with jackfruit, onion, coleslaw BBQ sauce, arugula, avocado, and salsa. It’s tangy and spicy with a touch of sweetness, and you’ll be glad to have gotten your veggies in such a tasty way.

1) John’s Family Restaurant

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! While John’s is indeed a great spot for a casual breakfast, their chicken souvlaki is also not to be missed. This massive portion of fresh Greek salad, perfectly grilled chicken, soft potatoes, and tangy tzatziki is one of the classic restaurant’s most popular items, and you’ll likely leave with half of it in a takeout container for a precious midnight meal later.
