Stoney’s Bread Company

Stoney’s Bread Company is a hidden gem tucked away in Oakville serving familiar classics – Italian and a modern Mediterranean influence. The doors of this restaurant opened back in 2004 by co -owners Steve Chabot and Blake Stoneburgh (restaurant name was inspired by Blake’s father).

With Stoney’s Bread Company being # 2 on Urbanspoon’s “Toronto’s Most Popular Restaurant” plus a friend’s recommendation (particularly their Sunday brunch) – it was pretty obvious that Stoney’s would be my next stop (one of many restaurants in my long list in the queue – haha) Unfortunately, I’m pretty busy Sundays so a dinner visit will have to do for now =)

Stoney’s is a “cafeteria” style restaurant. You order and pay for your food at the counter – menus are displayed there as well. Once they give you a number,  you seat yourself and someone will bring the food to you when ready! The friendly staff here are very quick and efficient. Once a table leaves, they quickly clean up ensuring there will never be customers standing around for a table.

I visited the restaurant on a very sunny day right after work with my mom – it was about 75% full when we arrived. Stoney’s isn’t the most spacious restaurant – but its warm and cozy!

There’s a help-yourself water station right next to the espresso bar. Fresh slices of lemon and ice are provided as well.

Whenever I dine out with my mom, she knows not to bother looking at the menu knowing that I’ll take care of the ordering! haha

Slow Roasted Lamb Sandwich ($11.00)

  • Tomato and rocket with sweet onion rosemary marmalade on a panini with three mustard aioli
  • I ordered this for my mom knowing that she loves sandwiches and I ate 1/4
  • Absolutely delicious – loved the sweet onion rosemary marmalade marination on the roasted lamb
  • The roasted lamb itself was very tender and moist
  • Stoney’s certainly loves stuffing their sandwiches (the roasted beef was literally falling out of the sandwich) – very generous portions!

Jambalaya Linguine ($16.00)  - Pastas are served after 5 PM only

  • Grilled chorizo sausage, grilled chicken & seafood in a creole tomato sauce
  • The pasta was very palatable and tasty – Highly recommend!
  • Although the Jambalaya was a bit spicy for me – I loved the kick & flavour it gave to the dish
  • Generous pieces of large shrimp, chicken bits and tasty mussels (10 pieces of mussels to be exact)
  • The linguine was cooked to a perfect al dente
  • A minor set back was the bread – wasn’t tasty or warm – it was just there to garnish the plate

Saltimbocca Pizza ($14.00)

  • Grilled chicken, prosciutto, mushrooms and mozzarella with tomato sauce
  • First of all, I never seen a pizza piled with large chunks of mushrooms – seriously.
  • The pizza itself is almost a perfect paper thin crispy crust pizza with an overload of toppings!
  • It was such a delight indulging in this pizza – the melted mozzarella over the grilled chicken and prosciutto made this pizza oh-so-good!
  • Stoney’s offers around 10 different gourmet pizzas – a suggestion would be to avoid pizzas with a few different types of meat – it may become salty

House Smoked Salmon ($12.00)

  • with emmenthal, red onions, capers, tomatoes

We ended up packing away most of the pizza and the roasted lamb sandwich!

Verdict ? I liked every single item I had here. Service was friendly and portions were huge. I’m definitely going to return – perhaps for Sunday brunch? I heard this place can get real busy – well it was almost packed and I went on a weekday so I can only imagine what its like Saturday nights and Sunday brunch! Unfortunately they don’t accept reservations so remember to come early!

      you are so quick! and no problem – I usually wait around a month before I post a resto that I JUST visited =p

      • I’m a quick reader (lesson I learned from reading and writing at work) the pricing is really good for the portions and quality, but the general review is only 88%? wow tough critics

        • Grace said:

          Actually, generally restaurants in toronto that are over 86-87% are pretty good. Theres not many that are over 90% here lol

        • Ah I gotcha, I just figured lots of people were food reviewers lol ;)
