Here are the 5 hottest restaurants in Brampton for the week of April 22-28, based on the amount of organic page views and searches these restaurants received on inbrampton.com.


5) Sweet Breeze Cafe

This European cafe, tucked away in a plaza on Polonia Ave. offers speciality coffees, soothing ambiance, compelling art and a nice selection of decadent desserts. In terms of desserts, the cafe offers apple dumplings, cream puffs, Vienna cheesecake, tiramisu, custard cream pie and more. The prices are reasonable, the coffee and tea selection is generous and the service is exceptional--warm and friendly and familiar, as though you’ve been a customer forever.


4) Little Shop of Ice Cream

This hidden gem in Garden Square should not be overlooked. They have 12 flavours of ice cream and are also a cafe that serves salads and sandwiches, their most prized being their grilled cheese, made in-house. Their flavours like bear claw, truffle trio, and moose tracks come from Kawartha Dairy and Central Smith Creamery, and their scoop sizes range from “snack time,” at $2.25 to “just right,” at $3.50 to “somewhat big,” at $4.50 and finally “out of control,” at $6. They also have regular cones, sugar cones, and waffle cones to choose from, and you have the option of making your ice cream into a shake or a float. Their most unique flavour is their most popular: watermelon.


3) Mosaic Mediterranean Grill

If the bright yellow sign stating "Greek Food" above the restaurant’s front door doesn't give away what you're in store for when you walk inside, than I don't know what will. Mosaic Mediterranean Grill specializes in Greek and Mediterranean type fare. I opted for the chicken Greek salad, which was essentially a Greek salad with three piece of seasoned meat on top. The salad was fresh and crisp, topped with tomatoes, cucumbers, red kalamata olives, onions, and feta cheese. The chicken was seasoned differently than any of the other places I tried -- it was spicer and had more flavour to it, which was a nice touch to the meal. Overall, the meal was filling and not too pricey -- for about $11 I got a healthy and delicious meal which left me satisfied until dinner time.


2) JB's Street Meat

When you think of street meat, you might think about going to town on a foot-long hot dog before a Jay's game or after a long night of clubbing. You might even think of satisfying a hearty craving after a hectic hour at a local Costco or Canadian Tire. Even if you have fond memories of curbside sausages, you probably never associated the scrumptious meal with freshness and variety. JB's Street Meat (featured in our cover photo), which opened just a few short weeks ago in the Queen and Kennedy area in Brampton, invites diners to enjoy casual but well-crafted meat and BBQ dishes indoors. While owner Jonathan Boone and his team like to change up the menu based on the day's shopping, they do offer some staples that diners can expect to see on the menu daily, offering a core menu with pulled pork and pulled chicken, mac and cheese, ribs and more. While fresh cuisine is incredibly popular, it's typically associated with higher price points and the associated expenses sometimes deter diners looking to spend less on their meals. According to Boone, customers need not fear hefty price tags at his resto, as filling foods are competitively priced for the average diner.


1) Brars Grand Buffet

Here's another pleasant and wide variety of flavourful food for the vegetarian in you (no meat here). Brars is unique because it also has a bakery. So as soon as you step inside the restaurant there is nothing but food. The sweets look amazing and it kind of makes you want to skip the main course altogether. But don't do that. Brars has a wonderful variety of Indian food that's healthy and that's also comforting. You can't turn away when you see a grand, circular hot plate with curried chickpeas surrounded by samosas. And there is everything you could want when you're craving Indian food, whether you grew up on it or are new to it. If you have room for dessert the sweets are also almost exclusively cultural except for the ice cream. This is a great place to experiment eating Indian food. However, don't be afraid to ask what is available because the food descriptions on the glass are a little difficult to read.
