Breakfast at The Senator

It was my last day in Toronto and I had time to spare before heading to the airport. I took a fairly short walk to The Senator Restaurant for breakfast. The Senator is considered the oldest restaurant in Toronto, dating back to the 19th century when it was just a house. Over the past 30 years, under the ownership of the Sniderman family, the restaurant has become a Toronto landmark.

When I arrived, it appeared that there were only a few people waiting outside so I got in line behind them.The line was moving, but I quickly realized there were a bunch of people waiting in line once I got through the door. Since I was by myself, I didn’t mind skipping the wait and sitting at the counter.

I ordered the classic Senator Breakfast. It’s a plate of eggs, bacon, maple cider baked beans, challah toast, and home fries. You also have a choice of tea or coffee with organic milk.

The breakfast was simple and nothing special, but it was good. It was a nice filling way to start the day. I was a big fan of the challah toast. They gave a tasty blueberry compote to enjoy with it.

I finished my tea and ate the last of the challah toast. The folks behind the counter were very nice and service was quick. I still had more time before catching the train to the airport and there was still one more thing I had to do before leaving this city!
