Ever wake up on Saturday morning feeling peckish? It’s quickly become a proven fact in our household that the antidote is almost always The Stockyards. Just try saying no to a plate of biscuits with scrambled eggs, sage country sausage and gravy ($11), or fried chicken and Belgian-style waffles with a chili-maple glaze ($13) or the Stockyard breakfast sandwich ($7): a deep-fried, perfectly poached egg with bacon or sausage and aged cheddar.

And while your brunch-that-dreams-are-made-of is being made to order, try one of the gigantic, house-baked buttermilk biscuits ($2) with your coffee to ease the munchies. Crunchy on the outside with fluffy, buttery layers on the inside, smear on some butter and jam and you’re golden.

The Stockyards is open for brunch on Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 2:45 p.m.

The Stockyards, 699 St. Clair Ave. W., 416-658-9666
