Good food was served - we all ordered breakfast items - reasonable time frame, and served exactly as requested (eggs over easy, eggs medium,... More

We decided to return to Eggsmart as we had thoroughly enjoyed it on our previous visit. Sadly this time it did not deliver. In large part I think this was due to the fact that the restaurant was absolutely packed on this family day. Initially only one server was working and he was trying his very best to keep up... More

Good morning It is very disappointing to hear about your experience at our downtown location this past Family Day. The volume was unusually busy and part of the challenge was that we were short staffed because some of our kitchen help did not make it in to work. I hope that in future if you decide to come back that... More

Pretty standard breakfast place. Toast under toasted, eggs undercooked, and coffee a touch weak. You get what you pay for. The breakfast here is half the price of nicer breakfast places and definitely decent. I went everyday for a week because the value and convience

I happen to be in downtown Toronto this morning for an appointment and traffic was good so I got here early. As I was driving up Bay street I spotted this Eggsmart restaurant since I had time I decided to go have some breakfast. Eggsmart is a neat little place right on Bay Street with bay windows all across the... More

Went here every morning for breakfast. Everything was so tasty and good only reason it doesn't get 5/5 is cause if it's busy you can be waiting a long time. But everything else was great!!

After reading so many good reviews of Eggsmart chain we headed here for brekkie, not bad but I have been in many better Diners in the USA and UK. The bacon was not crisp, the french toast not too warm and it was all a bit lacklustre.

A nice place and above average actually. It's fast, they're friendly, the food is filling and it's clean. I would go back. It's worth the stop.

Having eaten at the slightly smarter place over the road for four days of our holiday, we thought we would try Eggsmart. We were very glad we did and had breakfast there every day for the rest of our holiday. The staff are lovely and friendly, the breakfasts are all BIG (and I mean BEE - AYE - GEE, big!)... More

Eggsmart is by far the best place in the area for breakfast. Along with their many different breakfast offerings the waitering staff are really great. I say this from not just one visit, but many or I wouldn't bother writing a positive review.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
