The Tulip Steakhouse- 1610 Queen St. East – (416) 469-5797

“Famous for their world-class steaks and all-day breakfasts since 1929,” The Tulip Steakhouse is a Beaches landmark… good for three square meals a day.

It would be difficult to find a better all-day breakfast than The Tulip Big Breakfast ($9.95). The decadence of this platter is the stuff of legend. Here we have 3 Eggs, 2 Sausage, 2 Bacon Strips, 2 Slices of Peameal Bacon and 2 Buttermilk Pancakes… all for a Tenner. ‘Nough said about their breakfast.

The lunch options are just as bountiful; the Warm Beef Brisket on a Kaiser with Dip ($7.95) being my current favourite in the rotation. Picture 9oz of fresh-cut Brisket, served with Spicy Mustard, Coleslaw and a Kosher Dill. Though probably not as good as your Bubbie’s brisket, it’s a heaping pile of heaven nonetheless. Other standouts include the 9oz Corned Beef or Montreal Smoked Meat Sandwiches ($7.95 each). I would recommend taking a pass on the Reuben Sandwich ($8.95) simply due to the sogginess of the bread from the Sauerkraut.

New to The Tulip are their Retro Lunch Specials, which offer-up the Soup of the Day or a House Salad with any of their classic sandwiches, including one heck of a Club House, for one low, low price.

If you’re coming in later in the day for a home-cooked dinner, The Tulip has a number of rotating daily specials that are served with all the trimmings…

Monday: Roast Beef ($9.50); Spaghetti & Meatballs ($8.95)

Tuesday: Boiled Corned Beef and Cabbage ($9.50); Cabbage Rolls ($8.95)

Wednesday: Beef Stew ($9.50); Chicken Cacciatore with Rice ($8.95)

Thursday: Breaded Pork Chops ($9.50); Lasagna & Salad ($9.50)

Friday: Shepherd’s Pie ($9.50); Spaghetti with Meat Sauce ($8.95)

Saturday & Sunday: Roasted Shoulder of Lamb ($11.95); Chopped Sirloin Steak ($9.95)


With something on the menu for everyone and ample parking at the nearby LCBO (wink, wink) The Tulip truly is the comfort-food capital of The Beaches. See you there!
