Best breakfast ever

I had the pleasure of eating at Chew Chews during my trip to Toronto. I had ordered the conductors special and a side of onion rings. I could not believe how generous the portions were. I was not even able to eat my onion rings. If you visit this is a must!

One of my favourite places for breakfast. A proper neighbourhood place that takes really great care of their regulars and pulls out all the stops for new-comers. Everything they make is killer and it's a very comfortable place to hang out.

Living in the neighbourhood, I eat eat here fairly regularly. The place has been redone since new management took over... and the place has never been busier. Don't let the fact that there is sometimes no one in the place. It's the best time to eat here. And you'd be surprised how quickly the place fills up. And yes, the... More

Had breakfast in this diner this past Sunday. We got there at 10:30am and this place was busy. This diner has 3 sections at front, middle and back. Unfortunately we were seated in the back because we were only a couple. The back section is the smallest section with only 2 seater tables. It is also the smallest and the... More

Went here on Sunday for breakfast. Place was mostly empty aside from a few tables but the service was really slow. After we ordered it was a good 25 minutes or so before our food finally came. My home fries were burned on one side of each of them like they were forgotten, and there was just 1 cook making... More

A group of us ate at Chew Chew's for a Bachelorette party and the food was awesome! Nobody had any complaints about the food and the service was great as well! Id go back again!

I've lived in the area for a few years and I regret not trying out Chew Chew's years ago. This gem is tucked away a few blocks east from Jarvis & Carlton. My first experience this past weekend was a memorable one! I'll be returning for sure! Upon entering the diner, we were immediately greeted by friendly staff, smiles from... More

We come here often. The food is great and the portions are large. It has a friendly diner atmosphere. Not over priced at all. Inside is a train set displayed above the counter and some memorabilia on the walls. In the back is a beautiful view (picture) from a train car window of the Canadian Rockies.Open most holidays.

It is a cute little diner with well priced food and good sized portions. The staff are lovely and very efficient. Had a burger and it was great with lots of flavour and delicious bacon. Would certainly go back to try breakfast there.

Standard diner food, in an unprepossessing building. Reasonable service and prices. We were there for dinner, and suspect it's a better place to go for breakfast, from other reviews. Would go again, though - reasonable spot in this part of town.
