The services is so bad; the servers obviously don't care about people waiting. They're like whenever the next table is available, and if it fits three people, it's yours. We're like ok then we're going to wait. But we have to ask them three times after that!!! While the whole time, there're two empty tables (but with high chairs) right... More

And we enjoyed the meal thoroughly. The Hank burger and Hank side of fries was delish - loved the meat how it was seasoned and cooked and the toppings just right. The special of the day wrap with spicy sausage and salad side hit the spot. Service was fast and friendly and the paintings in the restaurant were really neat,... More

I work in the area and this is my go-to place for a great cappuccino in the morning, and often get the soup of the day for lunch. I know the food is all made in-house with fresh ingredients, and has never disappointed. The staff is friendly, and I like the rotating local art on the walls. This is a... More

Really friendly cafe in the St. Lawrence Market area of Toronto. Staff are wonderful, the food is great, and it's a lovely place to eat. What more can you ask? The food is delicious, well presented, and it's good no matter what time of day you're there. Hank's staff give back to the community and host an evening event annually... More

It wouldn't be Saturday morning without family shopping at the St Lawrence Market and breakfast at Hank's. Monique is possibly the best server in Toronto. She always makes everyone welcome and it's a great breakfast. The small plates in the wine bar are great too.

Whenever we stay in a hotel her the Esplanade in Toronto, we try to have breakfast at Hanks. It is a small town feel with a big city selection. The staff are always great and it seems that they have come to recognize us, despite only dining there four or five times per year. Hank's prices may be a little... More

We chose Hank's based on a description in the "Where" in Toronto tourist magazine. It sounded like it had interesting food in a sort of diner atmosphere. The cloth napkins should have been a clue that the prices for their offerings would be higher than diner prices. I ordered an avocado and vegetable salad. Although it was quite nice, the... More
