Tucked away in a cozy coffee shop at College and Dufferin is one of the city’s most flavourful ways to start the day. Egg, cheese, and thick-cut bacon come together with a sauce that offers the most subtle dijon flavours. All is served on an English muffin that’s always done extra crispy. This baby pairs perfectly with a hot cup of coffee.

You’ll think it’s wrong until you taste it, and then you’ll know in your bones that it’s right.
