Not so good. The eggs were cold, the plates didn't really resemble the description in the menu. Prices were a little high. Service average.

Had a good breakfast here, not fancy, but hearty and tasty. Had to wait a little for seating and were offered coffee while we waited, which was nice.

Boom delivers in so many ways. This is the cosiest and the original Boom outlet. The same delicious menu as the Eglinton & St Clair branches. Efficient service, friendly staff and good hearty food at very good prices. Peameal bacon and plenty of options. Love this place - my "go to" brunch spot in Toronto. No nonsense & excellent value!

I have been to Boom many times over the years since I live in the neighbourhood and it's one of the few places that is open very early and has decent breakfast. I sometimes work out at the Y and head over here for breakfast after with friends. I've always found the service fine but a little reserved - it's... More

We live in the neighbourhood and have been to Boom several times and have sent neighbours and friends there too. The food is good, especially the omelettes. However, this morning the server was so sullen and unpleasant that it put us off the place. She wasn't exactly rude, but made it obvious that she didn't enjoy her job. We are... More

I can't believe I haven't tried this place sooner. Its been here for 10 years. Great small upscale diner type place, very clean kitchen, fantastic fast and friendly service. The menu is great, so many fresh choices. Had breakfast of course, poached eggs were perfectly cooked, and the Boom frites delicious. Freshly squeezed orange juice and bottomless cup of coffee....

It is hard to find a decent breakfast place: this is it. It's not expensive, the food is decent, and it's fast. The portions are a little small and I don't consider myself a big eater. I wish the service were a little friendlier.

Boom is our neighbourhood breakfast favourite. It can be very busy on the weekends, but they offer small coffee and muffins to those waiting for a table which is a very nice touch. The omelettes are great - we love the Alcapulco Gold served with fresh fruit and great potatoes. They have an amazing selection of breads, including gluten free.... More

Great breakfast (all day) spot, with all the usual offerings, but done very well. Good over easy eggs, great potatoes, toast and bacon. 4 cheese omelette was very good. Coffee was a bit weak. Staff very friendly and attentive without being over bearing. Decor is a mixture of open tables and booths - go for a booth if possible, very... More

Staying in Little Italy

Neighbourhood Profile
Little Italy
Toronto's Little Italy is a city hotspot for cafe culture and nightlife. There's something for everyone in Little Italy, apparent from the cross-section of clubbers in glitzy dresses, and elderly couples arm-in-arm heading to their favorite wine or pasta spot. Cafes spill onto the wide sidewalks, pool lounges and bars are always teeming with noise and activity, and both outdoor and indoor marketplaces are packed with fresh fish, cured meats, and pungent cheeses. All of the activity makes it a perfect spot for people-watching, especially over a nice glass of red wine or a quick and sumptuous slice of pizza at one of the many eateries or trattorias in the area.
