In Barrie, brunch is the weekend thing to do. Brunch is the perfect ending to a fantastic long Saturday night, or perhaps the highlight of a day that includes a walk on Centennial Beach, and a nap.
If you have made this delicious meal a part of your regular weekend affair, you are no stranger to the “brunch hunch”. That is: going to a new restaurant on a hunch that they will have a delicious brunch menu. And if you are used to following your hunch with a little bit of anxiousness that it may end badly, take comfort in knowing that these brunch places are a guaranteed success!

The Breakfast House (TBH)
355 Bayfield Street, Barrie, Ontario
Bayfield and Cundles is where you’ll find The Breakfast House. Yes, we know its one of the busier intersections in Barrie, (especially in summer) but you will not be disappointed. When you look for The Breakfast House, their sign has a piece of toast and the letters TBH inside. We gotta admit, it looks pretty catchy! What is even better though, is the great food. The Breakfast House has all your favourites. One thing that they do particularly well is the home fries. Make sure to check in on FB when you visit. Tell them Barrie Uncovered sent you.
65 Bell Farm Road, Barrie, Ontario
You need to check out Mom’s Restaurant. So close to Georgian College, you can actually walk. When you walk into Mom’s, you’ll love the homey interior. Just like being home. Mom’s food is well portioned and they’ve got plenty of seating. Here’s a great idea – how about a breakfast hangout with friends?

Uncovered Secret: They have a special eggs benny menu, ask for it!
74 Dunlop Street, Barrie, Ontario
Perhaps the menu fare is less diverse than others at Chavo Crepes, but you won’t be disappointed! The crepes at Chavos are authentically made and piping hot. They melt in your mouth with just the perfect amount of sweetness, dripping with chocolate sauce or honey, or oozing with banana. At Chavos, you can choose from an impressive array of toppings, tailoring to the spectacular crepe tower you have always imagined. You can take their top suggestions for the best option, or keep it plain and traditional, no toppings required. And with great coffee on the side, you won’t miss the eggs or toast or any other typical brunch fare.
352 Huronia Road, Barrie, Ontario
Welcome to an old-fashioned, Mom and Pop style restaurant. All food here is homemade, even all the delicious pies. Fair warning though, you will not have room for dessert after eating their hearty breakfasts. How about plan on sharing an entrée so that you’ll have room for it? Deb’s place is pretty active on FB, leave them a review and tell them we sent you!
Visitors and locals alike can all get behind a delicious brunch and a great morning coffee. From traditional eggs and toast to unique takes on healthy ingredients, the habit of eating brunch in Barrie is alive and happening and is not to be missed!
