Brunch is always a great idea, especially when you are visiting a city for the first time. Plus, who doesn’t love the divine sweet smells of Canadian maple syrup, hot-off-the-grill smoked bacon and freshly brewed coffee? Niagara Falls may be home to world-famous waterfalls, but did you know that the city is also famous for its award-winning restaurants and hotels? The Niagara Region is also home to hundreds of fruit orchards, and dairy and poultry farms providing many of the restaurants with locally sourced foods farmed right in our own backyards. When you’re planning your next Niagara Falls getaway, be sure to discover some of our favourite brunch spot recommendations for a warm and delicious meal.
Riverside Patio located at Hornblower Niagara Cruises
There’s nothing like breakfast with a remarkable view. Enjoy your cup of coffee and our breakfast specials at our Riverside Patio located 91 m ( 300 ft.) from the Niagara Parkway. Situated 155 m (500 ft.) from the American and Bridal Veil Falls, it is the only patio with up-close views of the Falls. The patio opens as early as 8:30 AM during peak season making our breakfast stop and boat tour experience two checks off your morning list.
Flour Mill Restaurant, located at the Old Stone Inn
This adorable boutique inn is located a 5-minute drive from our boat tour experience and offers rustic and instagrammable accommodations. The Flour Mill Scratch Kitchen brings a bit of the great Canadian north mixed with chic boutique-style decor. If their food photos don’t have you drooling yet, then visiting them for their famous Canadian candied bacon trees sure will! Yes, miracles do happen! Pair it with their million-dollar caesar, that doesn’t actually have you breaking the bank. For an extra dose of gooey sweetness add a bit of southern comfort with their house-made New Orleans inspired beignets.
Lundy’s Lane District
This Italian cafe has all the right feels! Open daily at 11:30 AM, their lunch menu serves a slightly more lunch than brunch menu, but their appetizers and mains offer all the savoury finds you won’t want to miss. From zucchini crisps served with a vodka rose sauce, to seafood stuffed mushrooms, each menu item will have you doing the tarantella! Their ‘Strada Ultimate Burger’ will leave you with lasting Niagara Falls food memories.
When visiting a big city, it’s common to look for smaller cafes and restaurants equally recognized by locals. Queens Coach Restaurant offers true Candian hospitality and budget-friendly pricing with meals under $5 and $10. Strike up conversations with locals and learn some fun facts about the city while enjoying your lazy morning.
Turtle Jacks, located at the Radisson Hotel
The words, ‘Breakfast served all-day’ is music to most ears! Turtle Jacks opened in 2019 and is located in the Radisson Hotel & Suite Fallsview. The North American restaurant chain features a selection of pub and comfort foods as well as breakfast all day. Their Peanut Butter Bacon Banana French Toast may have your heart and soon your belly once filled with this magical goodness. The bonus is the hotel is located directly across the street from the brink of the Horseshoe Falls meaning you can enjoy your meal and very up-close views of the Horsehoe Falls’ crestline.
Tide & Vine Restaurant
Recently named one of ‘Canada’s Top Restaurants’ surveyed by Open Table, Tide & Vine Oyster House is a hot spot for locals. Open daily at 11:30 AM, except for Tuesdays, this rustic-chic oyster bar and restaurant offers all the fixings and not just for oysters either! From mimosas and seafood eggs benedict served Sunday mornings to shucked oysters in the evening, this restaurant is serving up warm and cold seafood delights all season long.
