If you want a great artisan sandwich (especially a loaded veal one with all the fixings), this is the place to go. Hidden in an industrial-ish area just around the corner from Williams Parkway and Torbram, That Italian Place is a very busy spot with an authentic Italian feel. A word of caution when you visit: order early or have time to spare. This absolute gem of a restaurant appeared on The Food Network’s You Gotta Eat Here in 2013 and for good reason – every item on the menu looks and tastes authentically delicious. If you’re in the mood for a hearty veal sandwich with all the toppings, you truly shouldn’t look anywhere else. The veal is tender, the mushrooms are filling and flavourful and the hot peppers add a certain wow factor that makes the sandwich complete. Another awesome item on their menu is the authentic woodfired pizza! If you’re looking to grab lunch, this is the ideal spot.
For those extra hungry brunch-goers, the portion sizes at Flips are massive and deserve a mention. The plate was the size of the table and list of breakfast items on the menu was even bigger. If you’re looking for the most bang for your buck for brunch in Brampton, Flips is the place to go. The hash browns could make a Top 5 list of their own because they were so crispy and seasoned to perfection (definitely the star of the meal). Be sure to bring your appetite and/or a friend to Flips!
Looking for something sweet and savoury? Satisfy all your taste buds with the Spicy Southern Chicken and Waffles at J. Red & Co Food + Drink. Once you bite into this curious combination, you’ll discover that chicken and waffles were made for each other! The spicy chicken and maple syrup created a well-balanced mixture of flavour that I like to call sweet heat. The crispy onion rings were the cherry on top. The brunch menu (only offered on weekends from 11am to 3pm) has a great mix of classic breakfast items and regular appetizer/lunch options.
Located on McLaughlin Rd, Stacy Lee’s is a cozy spot for brunch in Brampton. The Blueberry Waffle was light and fluffy and the blueberry topping was perfectly sweet and bursting with flavour. The welcoming atmosphere brings warmth on a cold winter day. I’m confident that anything ordered off the menu at Stacy Lee’s will be delicious! The hard part will be deciding what to order. It is truly a unique spot worth visiting with family and friends.
Tucked away on Regan Rd in Brampton, AJ’s is a fine establishment that deserves front and centre recognition. A staple on every brunch menu, eggs benedict is not only a classic but a must-try at AJ’s. The Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict was downright delicious! The server suggested well-done hash browns and they were crispy and perfect. This meal is definitely worth going back for and enjoying again.
