Toronto’s Best Sandwiches: The Lakeview’s Corn Flake chicken sandwich

Just voted the city’s best diner by readers of NOW Magazine, The Lakeview Restaurant woos night owls and early birds both. Always open — as the front window proclaims smartly in neon — the retro diner has all the fittings one would hope for: black and white floors, snug booths and vintage tunes. Those dreaming of the past can wolf down a classic burger and slurp on a root beer float while eyeing their favourite Betty by the bar.

We tucked into the Corn Flake chicken sandwich ($10). Breaded with — that’s right — Corn Flakes, a hefty portion of fried chicken hugs slices of cheddar cheese and is topped with the traditional fixings: lettuce, onion and tomato. Smothered in the house barbecue sauce, the sandwich is served on a sesame bun alongside fresh-cut fries and a pile of organic greens for good measure.

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