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 Traditonal 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.
Here's the deal - I love bread, and that makes the Grainery near Kennedy and Steeles my own little slice of heaven. Now that that's out of the way, the Grainery has an abundance of delicious soup offerings, with different, fresh soups daily! In total, the Grainery boasts a whopping 15 different soups, stews, and chilis throughout the week, including beef stew, broccoli and cheese, Italian wedding, tomato bisque, minestrone, chicken noodle, and even chicken gumbo - shall I go on? You can choose your size, small, medium, or large, for well under $5, except for their large stew which rings in at $5.39. All of their options are to-go, and shown below is their delicious chicken gumbo, which you can get on Thursdays. The gumbo has chicken, roce, celery, red pepper, onion, and even jalapeno - this one is for those who have a spice tolerance! As many options as they have and as delicious and cheap as their soup is, however, their chicken gumbo could have used way more chicken in it. The veggies and broth were done so, so right, though, and the staff is always helpful and kind.
At Hurontario Street and Steeles Avenue, Anjappar Chettinad is a great South Indian spot with a buffet, a regular a-la-carte menu including dosas. This place has a fantastic buffet on the weekends that is rather busy in the AM / early lunch hour. They’ve even got all your dosa classics like masala dosa, vada and amazing house-made chutney. The buffet ranges from a reasonable $10.99 for weekend mornings to $12.99 for a weekday lunch and $14.99 in the evening. Their dosas come with two chutneys, tomato and coconut, and a good serving size of sambhar, perfect in proportion with the size of the dosa. All of their chutneys and their sambhar were packed with flavour. They might have a variety of South Indian food, but their dosas are a highlight on their menu.
There are two types of people when it comes to Oscar's: you've either driven past this place a thousand times without giving it a second look, or you're a regular on the weekends for their live music nights. Regardless, this casual spot with a southern vibe at Queen and Bramalea deserves your attention! With regular karaoke nights on Sundays, specials on beer and wine throughout the week, and live music on Fridays and Saturdays, you can show up in a hoodie or your best jeans and fit right in at this bar and grill. As for food, they have some epic chicken wings and succulent ribs, breakfast options like french toast and a cheese-filled breakfast wrap, a special "Roadhouse Chop" salad topped with a house dressing, steak, and blue cheese, three different kinds of poutine, plus burgers, pizza, and more. You can keep up to date with all of the casual happenings at Oscar's here.
This spot, while not AYCE, provides amazing sushi at a reasonable price. The food is fantastic, I place it up there with any sushi joint in Peel Region. Tracing its roots to humble beginnings in the infamous Shopper’s World, this spot sits up top in the same plaza as the crowned king (Queen) of Shawarma at Hurontario and Bovaird. Do yourself a favor and try this place out. Quality over quantity sometimes!
