It’s hard to beat a decent fry! This is especially true after a tough night on the sauce and a plate full of grease is the only cure.
In fact right behind family & friends, a decent rasher was one of the biggest things I missed from home (yes Mam, I am comparing you to a slice of bacon!).
But salvation came one particularly hungover Sunday morning when myself and the other half stumbled across Good Bite restaurant.
This no-frills, old school diner is based in the heart of the Yonge/Eglinton neighbourhood which is home to a lot of the Irish living in Toronto.
Based at 2463 Yonge Street since 1969, the family-run restaurant has been the go-to breakfast destination of many locals in the area for almost five decades!!! And after 45 years serving up eggs, bacon and pancakes to a loyal legion of repeat customers, we reckon they know a thing or two about that all important first meal of the day.
The line of people waiting to get in the door every Saturday and Sunday is obvious proof of this joint’s popularity.
Comfy booths, friendly waitresses who are constantly running over to fill up your coffee cup and hearty meals, make Good Bites a homely option on a street over-flowing with fussy, over-priced restaurants.
If you are looking for a replica of an Irish-style fry-up, this place won’t deliver. But if you are looking for a great Canadian equivalent of the cooked breakfast, we highly recommend taking a trek to Good Bite.
One reviewer described it as ‘one of the last great diners of Toronto‘ and we couldn’t agree more.
Don’t expect a pretty, hipster cafe…this it most certainly ain’t! But it delivers the goods, the staff are unbelievably friendly, most breakfast options are under $10 and you will not leave hungry.
