Toronto’s Best Sandwiches: a bacon-stuffed brunch baguette from Bonjour Brioche


Published:

Arguably the best brunch boîte east of the Don Valley, Bonjour Brioche is Riverside’s go-to spot for croissants, baguettes and scrumptious French-style eats. Owners Lori and Henri Feasson have been wooing Francophiles in their charming café for 16 years now, outfitting the space with cheerful Provençal table linens and an ever-changing chalkboard menu.

Hailing from Bonjour’s weekend menu, our pick is the spicy bacon sandwich ($9). Its main draw is, of course, the double-smoked bacon. Procured from the St. Lawrence market, the meat is cured with brown sugar and cayenne pepper before being baked. It’s then folded into a fresh baguette — joined with avocado, tomato, chipotle aioli and old cheddar — before being warmed in the oven.

Served with a vinaigrette-dressed side salad, the meal is a delectable way to bring on the weekend.

Bonjour Brioche, 812 Queen St. E., 416-406-1250
