Where We Eatin': Sadie's Diner

Sadie's Diner
504 Adelaide Street West, Toronto

Kreck here. There are few things I enjoy more than going for breakfast, but it can be hard to find a breakfast place where everyone (vegans, gluten-frees, normal people) can go. Sadie's Diner has been a godsend for many a vegan and vegetarian in Toronto. Sadie's boasts many vegetarian and vegan breakfast and dinner options, and also has a juice bar (if you're into that kind of thing).

I ordered the vegan breakfast burrito with home fries ($8), which is not gluten-free, but could be if you got it without the tortilla. The burrito consisted of tofu scramble, soy cheddar, lettuce and refried beans. It was hearty, if a little bland (the hot sauce did wonders). I enjoyed the burrito but I probably wouldn't order it again -- the tofu club sandwich is still my fave Sadie's fare.

I regretted not ordering what Jen and her boyfriend had...

Huevos rancheros! ($10)

This was pretty much the same
as the breakfast burrito, except that it was served on crispy corn tortillas and came with guacamole (!). It looked a lot more exciting than the burrito. Greg thought it was "good" and he would rate it 7 out of 10. Jen thought it was really good, although she thought that it would be tastier if the tofu had been seasoned.

The service could be better and it was really warm, but Sadie's is still one of my favourite breakfast places in Toronto. AND, we all noticed that our hangovers were cured / lessened after eating here. Take from that what you will.

Sadie's Diner: It's where we eatin' breakfast.
