Smoked meat and Greek Salad

Stopped by for lunch. Had a smoked meat sandwich and greek salad. Shared with husband and had plenty of food. Sat on the patio. Enjoyed it so much we stopped by later in the week with friends.

....so I had try this place, after seeing the owner on various food network programs. Good solid deli food. Fairly traditional fare - excellent smoked meat and other deli sandwiches, breakfast served all day, traditional dishes. Atmosphere is exactly what it should be. Excellent prices! I'll be back.

Visited the College Ave location for lunch. Service was friendly, albeit a bit slow, but the food was outstanding! Smoked meat deli sandwich and Rueben were both top notch. Coke slaw and potato pancake sides were also delicious.

With Pearson Terminal 3 under construction, you need to go through security to find someplace to eat. Caplansky's food in fine but $13 seems like a lot for a sandwich. Service is quick, and you can get alcohol, but watch the bacon – it’s a beef product. This restaurant is open to the rest of the terminal so it's noisy... More

the only reason I don't mind flying into Toronto is eating at Caplansky in terminal 3 nothing better than a good smoked meat sandwich while waiting for a connection

While the downtown deli might be better, the YYZ / Airport one was average. Ordinary fries served with what we expected to be Montreal style smoked meat. Tasted more like corned beef, and I lived on Montreal for 10 years!!! Had one of our fries uppped to a poutine, which was also average. Not the type of gravy that made... More

Connecting in YYZ May 18 on our way to Cuba and again on the return May 25, needed a real meal so decided to try Caplansky's and were not disappointed. Food was fresh, fast and delicious and the service was friendly and helpful both times we ate there. Breakfasts are huge, filling and satisfying. We did lunch/supper on the return... More

We went with a big group and arranged all you can eat deli platters. The servers were quick, friendly and knowledgeable, and the owner (Zane Caplansky) was always in sight. I grew up in delis, and my mother has said this was not traditional, and in some respects she is right, but traditional is not always best.What can i say,... More

Having eaten in great delis in New York City and Montreal, this restaurant was a complete disappointment. The matzo ball soup was completely tasteless. Additionally, the portions were VERY small and overpriced. This is not a real deli: all for show, absolutely lacking in quality.
