Food Out of This World


Mars, this wonderful retro breakfast restaurant has been in business at this location on College St since 1951 and the interior looks the same now as it did then. Famous for their muffins and all day breakfast menu, it is like stepping back in time to eat at Mars!

Sounds like a place worth trying!

I prefer these places rather than the franchise bombardment we get where ever we go.

Lesley said...

It is still around?!! I keep forgetting to check whenever I am in that area (which isn't very often.)

Tracy said...

Definitely out of this world. Sounds a good place to try.

Mmmm. I like all-day breakfasts, :)

I wonder if they sell Mars bars? Do you have those?

Jack said...

With all of that graffiti on the storefront, I probably would have passed it by. Glad to hear that it is a longtime favorite.

Love retro restaurants, specially when they are so traditional like Mars! ;-)

I think I would expect to step into space, and have a meal of .... whatever martians eat :-) Very nice find!

Gosh from the window is that a 24 hour all day breakfast, indeed out of this world.

Oh my Gosh I soooo want to have breakfast there tomorrow. Oh for a Magic Carpet. Milkshakes for lunch? Cherry Coke?

Regina K said...

Yum.... Wish this were close enough for me to visit!

Since I can enjoy breakfast at any hour, this place would be a hit with me.

I used to step off the streetcar when I lived on Bathurst, just so I could have one of their blueberry muffins.
