Homemade Pop Tart
Feed your nostalgic cravings with Anchored's flaky and filled take on the Kellogg's Pop-Tart. Sweet and savoury options have included pancetta and swiss, apricot and sweet cream, but you're looking at a classic cherry jam. Anchored Espresso Bar and Toastery, 6451 Quinpool Road
Here's more evidence that mom always knows best, Mama's Smoothie Bar blends tropical fruits and sometimes a dollop

Baked beans and biscuit
Welcome to the comfort zone, home of amazing fish cakes (two for $6) and all-day breakfast. But nothing warms the insides quite like homemade baked beans ($3), and nothing sops up homemade beans quite like a homemade biscuit ($2).

Armview French toast
Raisin, apple, honey baguette (courtesy of Boulangerie La
Vendéenne) covered in Aunt Jemima's secret recipe and garnished with icing sugar. The Armview, 7156 Chebucto Road
Everything you want in a breakfast sandwich—the price, the generous bacon, the cheese slice, the grease-stained napkin...the immediate need for another one. Thanks, uncle Jesse.
The Cafe, The MacDonald Building, 2131 Gottingen Street
Nutella Hazelnut Chocolate Crepe
A paper-thin crepe, carefully crafted before your eyes and filled with cheese, ham, greens or eggs—but we prefer the sweet, melty goodness that is a liberal layer of Nutella.
Creperie Mobile, Seaport Farmers' Market, 1209 Marginal Road
A upgrade for your classic peanut butter toast, this grainy bread's slathered with almond butter, buried in bananas, sprinkled with sunflower seeds and finished with a drizzle of real maple syrup. The Nook, 2118 Gottingen Street
