Mac n’ cheese is a fall weather staple. As soon as the weather cools down, it’s the number one cheesy, indulgent comfort food that always comes to mind. Thankfully, plenty of Toronto restaurants are happy to feed our cheesy cravings, with mac n’ cheese plates that never disappoint. From truffle mac n’ cheese to vegan mac n’ cheese, lobster mac n’ cheese and of course, customizable mac n’ cheese too, here are 7 places to get your fix!

1. Thompson Diner 

Located on the ground floor of The Thompson Hotel at Bathurst and Wellington, the Thompson Diner is a charming spot to get your munch on. They’re known and loved for their truffle mac n’ cheese, made with asiago, aged cheddar, and toasted breadcrumbs. Add bacon or crab to take it up a notch, and pair it with a milkshake for the complete diner experience.

2. Bloomer’s

A charming bakery on Bloor Street West, Bloomer’s caters to vegans and has one of the most scrumptious menus we’ve seen. Their vegan mac n’ cheese is one dish you don’t want to miss. It’s a blend of macaroni and broccoli tossed with their dairy-free cheesy sauce. Add bean curd bacon bits for an extra $2 and you’ll be more than satisfied!

3. Boehmer

A night in the Queen West area calls for a delicious meal, so head to Boehmer for a bite. Their lobster mac n’ cheese is one of the best things you’ll eat this fall. Rich, creamy, and completely indulgent, it’s not for the faint of heart. Orzo pasta is combined with cream, lobster, fontina and grana padano for this cheesy masterpiece.

4.  Betty’s 

The only thing better than a piping hot bowl of mac n’ cheese is a personalized piping hot bowl of mac n’ cheese. Made to order and served in a piping hot skillet, you start with a base of noodles and cheese, and choose from extras including bacon, peameal, jalapenos, ham, sauteed mushroom or onion, chili, chicken, steak, or spicy pulled pork.

5. Factory Girl

If you’re up for mac n’ cheese with an Italian flair, head to Factory Girl on the Danforth. Made with (almost famous) fresh rigatoni, alfredo sauce, mushrooms, diced tomatoes, and cheddar cheese, you’ve never had mac n’ cheese like this before. Upgrade your order with spicy Italian sausage for a cool $3 extra.  

6. The Senator

Situated right near Yonge and Dundas, The Senator is a go-to lunch spot for hustling city dwellers. Their mac n’ cheese is a divine blend of six cheese sauce, elbow macaroni, and herbed breadcrumbs (add smoked ham for $6 extra). You also get a salad on the side.

7. The Craft Brasserie

On the dinner menu at The Craft Brasserie, you’ll find their signature mac n’ cheese: Orecchiette pasta tossed in creamy, rich brown butter and smoked gouda cheese sauce, with green peas and toasted panko crumbs. If that’s not comfort food at its finest, I don’t know what is!
