Mars Food – Classic All-day Breakfast Diner

There have been a few changes since Mars was voted “The Best Breakfast” in 2002. Even more since first firing up their griddle in 1951.

For one, this old-timey diner on College Street West near Bathurst has added avocados to their bagel sandwich offering. I suspect that a Greek salad and veggie wrap were also not menu originals.

Oh… the prices are likely a bit higher as well. But what hasn’t changed is their dedication to serving up Toronto’s most delicious all-day brekkie.

Behind the long, chrome counter lined with vinyl stools, is a grill that dishes up comfort food aplenty, including all things egg, like omelettes and make-your-own Bennies. There are also Canadian pancakes, Belgian waffles, and cinnamon French toast.

The restaurant touts their food as: “Just out of this world.” I’ll let you decide if that extra terrestrial descriptor matches your eating experience, but I will confess that their strawberry, vanilla or chocolate classic ice cream drinks are a yummy blast from my childhood past. In fact, I suggest no rover or space probe has brought back a better tasting milkshake since Earthlings first visited the red planet in 1971.

What’s Spot On:
• The Mars Omelette is a supernova of delish with wild mushrooms, smoked bacon and a three-cheese blend.
• Open 24-hours on Saturdays for a late-night nosh following a fun evening in Little Italy, a little west on College; or after a rockin’ set of music at Sneaky Dee’s right across the street.
