On Sunday morning my family and I went to The Lighthouse Fish and Chips in Brantford for breakfast. Located on Colborne St., this cute little place is tucked in a plaza and is therefore easy to miss, so if you’re at that end of town, keep an eye out for it.
My dad had been to The Lighthouse before, but the rest of us had not, so he suggested we give it a try. It’s a relatively small restaurant with a huge menu, and its cozy interior makes it difficult to be uncomfortable.
I ordered a full English breakfast (minus the toast and eggs as I can’t eat them). The full English breakfast comes with two eggs, toast, chips, bacon, sausage and beans, and I assure you, you won’t leave hungry. The fries were fantastic, as were the beans, and the pork sausage comes in three flavours; I ordered the Cumberland sausage (I think that’s the proper spelling) which had a strong, peppery flavour, but milder versions are also available if peppery isn’t your style.
Aside from a wicked breakfast, this place is known for their fish and chips. With a choice of halibut, haddock, perch, cod, sole or pollock, there’s definitely a variety of fish for anyone. Their prices are incredibly reasonable, the staff is friendly and welcoming, and the portions are healthy. I don’t have a single criticism about this place, and if you’re a Brantford resident, I highly recommend you give this place a try if you haven’t already.
Like, come on. Look at this stuff.
They also offer all-you-can-eat fish and chips for only $11.
Did I mention there’s also dessert?
Had my dad not told me about this place, I likely wouldn’t have thought to stop in. I’m pretty darn glad I did, though, and this place is where it’s at for some good old Sunday morning breaky.
