Did you know that Boom Breakfast & Co. is a family run business?

From the leadership team to the on-site operations in the kitchen and the friendly faces taking your order at the table, Boom is all about family. And family is all about food! So here’s what the family recommends.

Tony Capellano

Tony’s Pick

Our founder Tony Cappellano passed away suddenly last year but remains the head and heart of the Boom Breakfast family. He opened the first Boom location in 2003 at College Street in Toronto. Not surprisingly, there’s a sandwich named after this legend!
