Regular viewers of CP24 would likely have noticed a little ad for breakfast at Sunset Grill. Given the proliferation of various breakfast diner-type chains lately, one certainly wonders if anything sets Sunset Grill apart. So I decided to find out one day during a brunch visit to the location at 1 Richmond Street West in downtown Toronto.
I started with a coffee ($1.89), which was excellent with great aroma and taste. I next ordered the “French Connection” ($9.69), consisting of three eggs, breakfast meat (I picked sausages), French toast and home fries:
First amazing point about service: I asked for the eggs to be over hard, which was not an option listed in the menu. However, my server cheerfully informed me that it will not be a problem, and indeed, the eggs were done right. Going beyond “the rules” is certainly worth a praiseworthy mention in a review!
The French toast was wonderful. The slices smelled beautiful and the taste was fresh and perfect. Indeed, it is the best French toast of the traditional variety that I’ve ever had. I will definitely consider getting a much bigger stack at my next visit!
Besides getting the eggs exactly the way I wanted, service was commendable in other aspects as well. Speed was fast with little waiting, my coffee mug was topped up when appropriate, and my server enthusiastically checked up on me at the right times.
If I have to find something to pick on, it would be the sausages had the appearance of being left on the grill for a few seconds too long. However, it was purely an aesthetic issue, and the taste was not affected at all.
Bottom line: Sunset Grill represents superior value and great food. Highly recommended.
