Fucked UP Presents The Fucked Up Breakfast: Two New Featured Dishes Available Exclusively at Sneaky Dee’s

We’ve done it again! Sneaky Dee’s is proud to announce not one, but two new featured dishes, The Fucked Up Breakfast and The Queen of Heart Attacks inspired by Toronto’s favourite psychedelic hardcore band, Fucked Up.

Given the late night hours that go with being busy musicians, Fucked Up knows the value of a good breakfast, so it was no wonder that the band decided to add its own special item to the menu beginning Wednesday, June 12th. But one breakfast was just not enough, so Sneaky Dee’s is now offering the breakfast in both the classic and tex-mex styles, on a platter and ready for sharing!

Served on a platter, The Queen of Heart Attacks is a mountain of bacon, ham, and sausages, pulled pork eggs Benedict, french toast, poutine home fries, sautéed mushrooms and grilled tomatoes. This is classic, unpretentious, tasty, and definitely hits the spot without breaking the bank.

Looking for more of a kick? We’ve got you covered! The Fucked Up Breakfast, gives food lovers a taste of the extraordinary with enchiladas and eggs, peppers, cheese, and salsa mole. A flour tortilla bowl filled with beans, diced onions, tomatoes, peppers and topped with cheese. Poached eggs swimming in salsa mole on top of corn tortillas, rice and beans. And a side of chili, flour tortilla chips covered with salsa verde and ensalada to complete the meal.

Both breakfasts are now available at Sneaky Dee’s, all-day for $24.95, by request!

Give into this belt-bursting experience today!

A Photo Story: Emma Hill

Alaskan Singer/Songwriter Emma Hill has been touring, non-stop, with her musical partner Bryan Daste in support of her brand new album The Black and Wretched Heart, which was released here in Canada on May 14th. They have driven roughly 10,000 miles to play 50 shows in 54 days days across The United States, and made a special stop here in Toronto earlier this month!

Emma comes from a very small village in Alaska called Sleepmute with a population of only 100 people. The only way to get to Sleepmute is by plane! We thought we would show her one of the best parts about Toronto: The Legendary King’s Crown Nachos!

While anxiously awaiting their first King’s Crown, we played a little game called 2 Truths and A Lie about her home state of Alaska! Can you spot the lie?

1. Alaska’s Balladeer is Hobo Jim and is most known for his song “Fishin’ For Chickens”

2. Best way to deal with a grizzly bear is put a little penut butter on it’s nose

3. Alaska has a Summer solstice, which means the sun is out for 24 hours of the day!


Check out the photo story below of Emma and Bryan’s King’s Crown experience!

Here it is… first King’s Crown EVER! “OH MY GOD”

Dig in…

“Oh My God” – Emma
“I LOVE being famous” – Bryan *note sarcasm

Unlike any nachos you’ll find in Alaska…

Building up strength to fight bears when they get home

Bet you that this will make you want to come back to Toronto again and again

Almost done… you guys can do it!

Happy campers. “Kind of broke my brain with its awesomeness” – Bryan

Now tell everyone in Alaska what they’re missing in Canada!

We love Alaska and we love Emma Hill! Thanks for the good times and the Alaska facts. Can’t wait to see you guys again!


Spitalfield To Play Sneaky Dee’s June 11th!

It’s been ten years since Spitalfield‘s Victory Records debut, titled Remember Right Now. The album, which was produced by Sean O’Keefe, was a staple of so many fans’ CD collections. The band split back in September 2007, but are reuniting for a 10th anniversary tour, kicking off upstairs here at Sneaky Dee’s on June 11th alongside Shane Henderson & The Future Perfect (Valencia) and Jon Walker (ex-Panic! at the Disco).

It’s going to be an epic night and you aren’t going to want to miss out. You can get your tickets here:

Also stay tuned to our twitter @theSneakyDees for your chance to win a pair of tickets.


A Photo Story: Acres of Lions Tackle The King’s Crown

Pop-punk band Acres of Lions have been on a Cross-Canada tour for the last few months and on May 3rd they made a stop here in Toronto and we invited them for some good ol’ King’s Crown. Check out their experience below!

Awaiting the feast… Here it comes!

“We’ve been comin’ to Sneaky Dee’s since, like, the first time we were ever in Toronto.” – Dan

Behold the King’s Crown!

A little something to remember us by…

Now this is something to get excited about!

Diggin’ in
“The Kings Crown nachos are definitely fit for a king… And I might be a bit of a prince.” – Shane


Making a dent!
“You just feel them like makin’ a soccer ball in your stomach.” Tyson said, referring to the beans.

Gotta get that sneaky sauce!

A serviette perhaps?
“I think there must be a guy back there, and correct me if I’m wrong, that just makes guacamole all day long.” – Jeffrey

There we go

When eating on the road, a proper shovelling technique is known to save much time
“There’s no guac that’s like ‘this is okay’. It’s either shit, pretty good, or really good – and this is really good.” – Dan

Take a lesson from the nacho master

Sneaky Dee’s Habanero sauce may or may not have been scientifically proven to give one rather seductive qualities!
“I think it’s time for a napper, boys.” – Dan

“Can we wrap that up?” – Jeffrey
