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!

This restaurant is legendary in Brampton and its popularity is apparent the moment you walk through the door. Dramatically understated on the outside and somewhat spartan on the in, Stacy Lee’s thrives by serving up hearty breakfast fare and shredded hash browns (although you have to ask for them specifically). Located on McLaughlin Road near Queen, this place is perfect for straight up bacon and eggs, pancakes, waffles, French toast, Benedicts and a cool concoction comprised of a moist croissant, egg and cheese. The service is attentive, the atmosphere is relaxed and the food is great. You’ll leave full and happy—just remember to try those amazing shredded hash browns. You’ll never want to eat regular home fries again.
The Sul Irmaos Smokehouse is located in the heart of downtown Brampton and specializes in Portuguese southern fusion cuisine. The restaurant is known for its smoked meat, which is smoked (low and slow) and it was even featured on the Food Network’s You Gotta Eat Here. Must eat dishes include the beef eater (southern slow smoked brisket, deep fried okra and shrimp and collard greens, served with Creole mustard, house gravy and Caesar dressing) and the pulled pork and Beanasaurus (southern slow smoked pulled pork, homemade mama’s chill, fresh cut creamy coleslaw and fried mac and cheese bites).
Flips is an iconic breakfast joint that gets packed to the rafters on weekends and for good reason—it’s straight up delicious. Located on Main Street, this greasy spoon serves up all the classics (eggs, bacon, sausages, pancakes, waffles, French toast, omelettes, Benny’s, etc) and offers an enticing selection of incredibly generous combo platters that will kill your hangover and satisfy your appetite for days. While it’s easy enough to find greasy spoons that boast a solid breakfast game, it’s rare to find a place with consistently flavourful offerings that are legitimately tasty. It’s no wonder this place attracts everyone from families to couples to college/university students who partied hard the night before. It’s a true gem.
Portas Do Mar – or, “Doors to the Sea” – has settled into a location at Main and Vodden, where Martin’s BBQ Chicken used to be. The location is now under new ownership. The restaurant boasts BBQ chicken, grilled meat, and seafood on their menu, with healthy sides of potatoes, veggies, and rice. Anyone craving flavourful grilled meat in hearty portions seems to be in for a treat, as the resto is easily accessible to visitors from its central location.
