The Lakeview Restaurant is one of Toronto’s most popular late-night spots, and of all the comfort foods on the menu — from 24-hour breakfast like eggs in a basket ($10) to classic diner fare like mac ‘n’ cheese ($12) — it’s probably the fresh-baked apple pie ($5.50) that is most satisfying at 3 a.m.

Served warm, the buttery, flaky crust barely holds on to the giant stack of cinnamon-laced apple layers. It’s finished with a dollop of whipped cream and your choice of ice cream.

Or, just get a milkshake ($5.25) with some pie added to it for $2.50 extra.

The Lakeview Restaurant, 1132 Dundas St. W., 416-850-8886
