Top Brampton cafes and eateries to fill up at before hitting the road

Nobody should drive hungry. They don’t teach that in driving school and we don’t have any science to back the statement up, but we’re willing to stand behind it. At least for as long as we’re in Brampton where we’re spoiled for quick and delicious local options for snacks, meals, drinks or treats before or after a long road trip.

Whether you’re hitting the 400 series for a rush hour commute, taking a Sunday afternoon cruise or heading to the airport and beyond, make sure you feed, hydrate and/or caffeinate yourself at one of these local businesses beforehand.

Trish Juice

When it comes to fast and healthy food, you can’t do much better than a fresh juice. Trish Juice may specialize in (you guessed it) juice, but their menu lists a lot more than that, including avocado toasts, smoothie bowls, soups, wraps, salads and more. Go for the juice, stay for the lunch, return for the juice…. It’s a vicious cycle, but very healthy.

T by Daniel

This is Daniel. Daniel likes tea. And bowties. And he’s really good at both. Located inside Bramalea City Centre next to the HBC, T by Daniel is a delightful experience guaranteed to put you in a good mood. From the cheerful greeting you receive from staff upon arrival to the expert attention and product knowledge, this is a popular spot for good reason.

As a special celebration for her 30th birthday, we have partnered with @jfjhopecentre to host “Ren’s Birthday Baby Bottle Campaign” Our goal is to fill 30 baby bottles with change, to support young families in Peel who are coping with unplanned pregnancy, or who are struggling to parent thier children, and couples who are hoping to build a family through adoption. We will also be accepting donations of diapers, feminine hygiene products and used baby to toddler sized clothing.

Segovia Coffee

This Latin-inspired café might be new to the city, but it’s already made an impression with the locals. Segovia Coffee sources their beans from Nicaragua, allowing the origin of the beans to influence the menu. Grab a coffee and an empanada or alfajores to go for something a little different than your usual Starbucks order.

Das Brezel Haus

This place is serious about one thing: pretzels. And no, we’re not talking about the crunchy little ones that you have one of, say “huh, that’s not very good,” and then proceed to eat 80 per cent of a family-size bag. These are the real, kneaded, twisted and baked bread pretzels that are for some reason normally relegated to baseball games and the CNE. Unlike the ballpark vendor, however, Das Brezel Haus has multiple different types and flavours, and will even make them into sandwiches. YOU CAN DO THAT?!

Bean + Pearl

Sometimes the drive calls for a coffee. Other times it calls for a bubble tea. Bean + Pearl marries the two under one roof with delicious coffees, sandwiches and pastries as well as bubble tea served in a highly Instagram-able environment. Here’s proof:

If your drive is happening in the later hours and you’re craving a burger and fries, know that there is a pretty solid alternative to the mass fast food chains in the Brampton area. Sonny’s has been serving charcoal-broiled burgers drive-in style for over 40 years, so they’re doing something right (insider tip: it’s the poutine).
