Denny's Toronto

by - March 21, 2016

The 24 hours diner is synonymous for their no frills "Grand Slam" breakfast, and there are an abundance of locations worldwide including several in Ontario. Denny's opened its first Toronto location in mid 2014 on the corner of Bay and Dundas. Its central location makes it very close to both the Eaton's Center, and Ryerson University (students also get 15% discount), so it's a convenient spot.

Denny's Toronto offers a menu of classic breakfast and comfort food for relatively affordable prices. Although breakfast seems to be the central focus at Denny's as it's available all-day. I arrived to Denny's Toronto for lunch, and opted for the highly recommended Cinnamon Pancake Breakfast - cinnamon sauce and cream cheese icing drizzled over two buttermilk pancakes. Served with two eggs* and hash browns, plus your choice of two strips of bacon or two sausage links and a side of warm syrup. I don't often eat breakfast foods for lunch, but it was available so why now? Judging solely on appearance, I'd say that the cinnamon pancakes was very aesthetically pleasing on my first visit (IG-picturesque).

However, I was slightly less than impressed with the lack of presentation on my second visit for dinner, and there was no syrup between the layers this time around. Luckily, the taste was still the same, which I enjoyed on both visits. Tasty and fluffy pancakes! Overall, the meal came with a substantial amount of food, and I was pretty full by the end of lunch.

I also got a strawberry milkshake, which was delicious!

Denny's Toronto has a couple of skillets on the menu, and J got the Crazy Spicy Skilletcrumbled chorizo sausage, jalapeños, sautéed mushrooms and fire-roasted bell peppers and onions blended together with seasoned red-skinned potatoes on a sizzlin’ hot skillet. Topped with grilled chicken breast, shredded Cheddar cheese, a spicy five pepper sauce and Pepper Jack queso.

Overall, the restaurant caters to the regulars in the area, students from Ryerson, and tourists, so it's a nice mix of patrons. Denny's Toronto is open 24 hours, and is essentially a go-to place for breakfast foods, and late-night dinners.

Denny's Toronto recently introduced an app called The Denny's Club App, where patrons are able to collect points for their meals (social loyalty program). Additionally, the app has the capability to allow you to pay for your meals within the app - a two-in-one feature. It's nice that you don't have to pull out your wallet, as your payment information are securely stored on the app. I like that if you're a frequent diner at Denny's, then the app instantly recognizes you as one of "Denny's Loyal Customers", and offers you extra perks.

Go paperless with your receipts and download the app today; available for Apple and Android.
