Here are the 5 hottest restaurants in Brampton for the week of July 27 to Aug. 2, based on the number of organic page views and searches these restaurants received on inbrampton.com.


5. Nova Grill & Bakery 

This Portuguese bakery in downtown Brampton near Main and Church does a lot of things right - they make a great pie, they have lots of bread and meat, and they make a mean soup! Nova Grill changes up their soup of the day daily, and for about $3, you can get a steaming bowl of their daily concoction, best enjoyed with a giant bun from their bakery, and a custard tart for dessert. Below is a vegetable soup from Nova, which was a smooth potato puree with chopped spinach and carrots, plus the right amount of flavours and spices to be considered, as they say, "yummy in my tummy." Nova is open bright and early at 8 a.m. so you can get soup at almost any time of day, and you can get it for there or to-go. What's more, the service is friendly and you'll always feel at home in the resto's cozy setting.


4. Traditional Taste 

Tucked into a plaza at Queen and McLaughlin, Traditional Taste is a classic bakery and cafe in Brampton that you have to visit, if not for their incredible custard tarts, then for their croissants! The classic butter croissant at Traditional Taste is big, fluffy, and sweet. That’s right, the dough has a pleasant sweetness to it that goes well with a cup of black coffee (if you roll that way). You can also make your croissant into a breakfast croissant with some deli meat and cheese here, and enjoy it in the small cafe area with plenty of light shining through the windows. A great croissant to start the day with.


3. La Cakery 

La Cakery is every sweet tooth’s slice of heaven. With a pastry case full of cookies, cannoli and custard tarts, it was hard to focus my attention on the cupcakes. But I did, and I am sure glad I did! Choosing between cupcakes topped with strawberries, sprinkles, and cookies was tough, but I settled on a classic red velvet one. I opted to eat this cupcake like a sandwich because I wanted to get the cream cheese to cake ratio as perfect as possible. The cake itself was fluffy and light, but my favourite part was the rich cream cheese frosting. Top that with the extremely patient staff as I asked a few times for recommendations, this is definitely a spot worth checking out.


2. The Chicken Shop at Maple Lodge Farms 

This is the kind of fried chicken that satisfies all cheat meal cravings. Located just north of Steeles on Winston Churchill, the Chicken Shop at Maple Lodge farms truly feels like a hidden gem for fried chicken in Brampton. Something I couldn’t overlook was the delicate seasoning which didn’t overpower the chicken but rather complemented it. On top of it all, their portions are generous--they certainly don’t skip out on making sure you get a big hearty piece of chicken. There’s no area to sit down and eat, so you’ll have to take this chicken to go.


1. Food Fight Barbeque Bar 

Now we get into the higher levels of smoked meat. You can smoke any type of meat, and when you do, something beautiful usually happens. The team at Food Fight Barbeque Bar understand this concept beautifully! Smoked chicken, smoked turkey, and the classics like pulled pork and beef brisket, help make this restaurant a smoked meat lover's delight! While their meat could probably hold its own in terms of taste, they add some extras to keep the flavour buds entertained. If you're an adventurous soul like me, or you just aren't sure which one to get, try their sliders to get a good taste of their options. The beef brisket here is succulent and tasty, I highly recommend it!
