Top-quality breakfast is something that isn’t hard to find in Mississauga, whether it’s Captain Robin’s in Port Credit, Orchard Family Restaurant in Cooksville, ZET’s Restaurant near the airport, or Wally’s Restaurant in the city centre. Canadian’s love their big breakfast meals and, as such, it’s no surprise you can find quality options on almost every street.
And speaking of street, you may have noticed a lack of Streetsville listed above. Well that’s because our restaurant spotlight for today focuses on a family-run eatery that operates a location in Streetsville, and a newer one in Port Credit. Bobby’s Hideaway is the establishment in question, and it is one of Mississauga’s biggest hidden gems and best quality restaurants.
Both Bobby’s restaurants are casual, family-friendly diners that specialise in breakfast food. The Streetsville location can be found at 20 Queen Street, and it’s hard to miss as a standalone building with royal blue awning’s, adorned with the signature B. Inside you’ll find a spacious, naturally-lit restaurant with simple wooden tables and a relaxing colour-scheme of maroon and yellow.
As for the Port Credit location (pictured above), it can be found at 398 Lakeshore Road East, and it’s a little brighter and more modern looking. Both Bobby’s restaurants have dozens of pictures on the walls, featuring famous Robert’s from around the world, from Robert Kennedy to Bob The Builder. It gives the diners a unique sense of character and humility. As for the food though, that’s something Bobby’s takes very seriously.
Consistency. Consistency is the lifeblood of Bobby’s, whether it’s the Streetsville location or the Port Credit one. Bobby himself demands excellency from his staff, including his own son Ben, who works in the Port Credit kitchen. Every pancake looks the same, every slice of bread cut the exact same way, and nary a drop of grease in sight. You know exactly what meal you’ll be getting every time you go to Bobby’s, and that’s quality you can rely on. It’s an impressive feat. to say the least.
Now as we said, Bobby’s specialises in breakfast. As such, the breakfast menu is quite extensive.
Starting with the specials, you’ll find standard fare like Eggs Benedict (poached eggs, peameal bacon on an english muffin covered with hollandaise sauce with homefries & coffee or tea) and Peameal Bacon (deli trim peameal bacon, 2 eggs, homefries, texas toast & coffee or tea). Then there’s some true special dishes that Bobby happily rests his hat on; Steak & Egg (6 oz n.y. steaks, 2 eggs, homefries, texas toast & coffee or tea) Corn Beef Hash (corn beef, potatoes & onions with 2 eggs, texas toast & coffee or tea), and the Big Bobby (1/2 pound ground round topped with mediterranean baked beans & sauteed onions with 2 eggs, homefries, texas toast & coffee or tea). Those are a few of the specials and they’re all delectable, but the Big Bobby is where it’s at!
Of course, no breakfast joint would be complete without some great omelettes. Bobby’s offers a variety of basic omelettes, as well as the Western (ham & onions), Monte Cristo (ham, turkey, and cheese), Greek (feta, onions, tomatoes), Spanish (mushrooms, tomatoes, onions, green peppers, salsa) and Vegetarian (mushrooms, tomatoes, onions, green peppers). Any of those options will satisfy your omelette craving, and some are a lot more exotic than your average breakfast fare.
Next up is the pancakes, waffles, and French toast menu, for all those sweet tooths out there.
Bobby’s is kind of well known for its consistently fluffy and tasty pancakes. So you won’t be disappointed if you opt for Bobby’s standard pancakes with eggs, bacon, sausage, ham, or with embedded chocolate chips. There’s also Golden Waffles adorned with whipped cream and strawberries, or Cinnamon Raisin French Toast. You can’t go wrong with these sweet options!
And the final option on the breakfast menu is the sandwiches. Here you’ll find a B.L.T, B.C.T, Triple Decker Grilled Cheese, Western, Bacon & Fried Egg, and more.
Bobby’s Hideaway is not like a Sunset Grill though, it doesn’t close at 3PM. Meaning it also has a dinner menu that is no slouch either! Honestly though, the dinner menu is significantly larger than the breakfast one, so we wont’ bore you with the entirety of it.
Instead, here are a few highlighted options that are well worth your money; The Mattehorn (our bobby’s burger burger covered with a slice of melted mozzarella and topped with a mountain of mushrooms. garnished with lettuce, tomato and onion), Super Smoked Meat Platter (montreal smoked meat piled high on rye bread, served with a dill pickle, fries and coleslaw or a side salad), Grilled Halibut Steak (halibut steak, grilled with our special meuniére sauce. broken transmitter parts extra.
add peppercorn sauce), Deep Fried Chicken Dinner (honey thyme peppered, served with mashed potatoes, succotash and chicken gravy), and the Hot Roast Beef Campaign (mounds of sliced roast beef, piled high on a slice of thick cut bread, served with our chef’s gravy. podium not included). If you’d like to see the entire dinner menu, head to this link and peruse at your leisure!
Clearly, we’re fond of Bobby’s Hideaway. It’s a fantastic breakfast restaurant that caters to all types of people. The food’s high-quality is mirrored in the excellent service and the clean, comfortable settings. However, as always, we don’t expect you to just take our word for it.
Seeing as there are the two Bobby’s locations, both of which are great, we’ve simply compiled the following reviews from both restaurants together. The Streetsville location holds a 4.5 rating on Goggle Reviews, while the Port Credit one ekes out the win with a 4.6!
Very nice inside, clean bathrooms, friendly helpful staff. Went for dinner and ordered from the all day breakfast menu. Excellent pancakes, big, fluffy, delicious. My dining companion had the fish and chips and the fish – halibut – is better than a lot of fish and chip shops. Highly recommend. Also way better parking situation than the Streetsville location.

It took 2 years but we finally found an AMAZING local go-to restaurant. We have been here 3 times this week getting something different every time and it was always incredible! We had breakfast, dinners and desserts (which are all served in a cute mason jar). Last thing ALWAYS ASK ABOUT THE SPECIALS they are delicious, big portions and a reasonable price!

The place is a hidden gem, tucked away in streetsville, with old school charm. The Italian sausage was some of the best I have ever had and the eggs tasted great too. The waiter was able to customize my order and swapped home fries for a salad with an olive dressing. The bacon was just right. Would love to be back. Highly recommend.
