Sunset Grill is Ontario’s number one destination for great breakfast and lunch!
Our story is quite simple. In 1985 our founder, Angelo Christou, opened Sunset Grill’s doors for the first time in the Beaches area of Toronto, Ontario. Armed with the basic philosophy that Fresh is Tastiest™, Sunset Grill quickly developed long lineups of loyal customers. With huge popularity and consistent service, it quickly became the place to be for the best breakfast in town.
It is said that when something works, don’t change it. After more than 30 years in business, we realize that while the world around us has evolved, our concept and methods have not changed. After all, good food, fast service and a pleasant experience is what a successful restaurant is all about.
Our food and preparation methods are 5-star inspired and quality is never sacrificed. All our menu items are cooked fresh to order using healthy methods: flat top grills, pat dry bacon and nothing is ever deep fried. With choices such as our famous bacon and 3 eggs for breakfast or our flagship Sunset Burgers for lunch, we invite you try our restaurants for an experience you can count on!

The California inspired concept was named after the Don Henley hit song “Sunset Grill”.
The History of Sunset Grill
2017 – November 30
Today we say goodbye to a dear member of our Sunset Grill family.
Mike Votsis worked alongside Angelo Christou and Sunset Grill for more than 32 years and played a big role in growing the brand. He helped his son, Tom Votsis, buy and open the very first and very successful Sunset Grill Franchise at Winston Churchill and Eglinton in Mississauga.
Mike was always happy and positive and had a very contagious giggle. Mike was loved by all the staff and customers. He was a one of a kind beautiful person! Thank you, Little Mike, for all the amazing times we had together. You will missed by all of us.
