Fighting off a challenge from Cora’s, Coastal maintains its dominance in the Best Breakfast category for another year. There are plenty of reasons for this: Owner and chef Mark Giffin’s amazing food, the friendly energy that suffuses the intimate Robie Street room. Or, we could heap all the credit on The Elvis, that monument to maximalist flavour: the buttermilk waffles avec bacon, peanut butter and banana, drowned in maple syrup.
