February 17, 2019:
This location of Sunset Grill is one of many new eateries that have opened up in a new plaza strip at Woodbine Avenue and Highway 7. I love how the restaurants are each brand new occupants and reflect different cuisines! I have been to one other Sunset Grill before (many years ago which was in Richmond Hill near Elgin Mills).
We arrived here for a late Sunday lunch and this new restaurant was cheerfully packed with lots of patrons. There was a “Please seat yourself” sign which we happily obliged. This was nice so that we could avoid sitting at a too-tight table and choose to have a four-seater table to ourselves. Shortly after we sat ourselves, a very friendly server came by to provide us with the menus and to take our drink orders. She was so warm and attentive throughout our entire visit. It was very nice.
Sunset Grill serves all breakfast and brunch food items. There are lots of classic items to choose from.
After ordering, our food arrived in a reasonable amount of time. This is a great family style restaurant. It seems like the target audience is families and small groups.
My classic Florentine Omelette had baby spinach, Swiss cheese, and onions with a side of home fries and thick toast (you can choose from white, brown, Rye, or Pumpernickel). I was really impressed with the size of the omelette! It was really substantial and hefty (big portion compared to the surprisingly small one at Denny’s we had recently).
The omelette was really great and I loved the baby spinach in it. It wasn’t overly savory or salty (so you might want to add salt and pepper). The home fries were really tasty — chopped up in small pieces and salty the way I like it. I chose the brown toast which was nicely buttered and halved.
Ken chose an order of Three Eggs (scrambled) with Peameal Style Bacon. The eggs also came with a side of home fries and thick toast. Although my favourite kind of eggs are the scrambled type, I found their scrambled eggs a tad buttery for my liking and not fluffy enough. It seemed like the scrambled eggs that you get from liquid eggs.
I’m glad that this part of Markham has a solid classic brunch place now!
