I was flying overnight to Scotland and had a long flight with an transfer ahead of me and needed something decent to eat. I was delighted to see this new deli at terminal three at Pearson because I'd heard that the location downtown was excellent. I had an delicious Reuben sandwich. filled to bursting with smoked meat. It came with... More

As you can see from the comments, the reviews are all over the map. From 1 star to 5 stars. That is my exact experience. When he was on Monarch, I stopped going after two visits because the smoked meat was either too salty or two dry. When he reopened on College, I thought I’d give him another try. Was... More

We were travelling through Toronto and found a Caplansky's at the airport. The smoked turkey sandwich was HUGEm and really tasty. Good quality food at the airport, but you will pay for it. Our lunch was $35.00 for 2 sandwiches, 2 soft drinks and a cup of soup.

Had heard a lot about this downtown deli, which opened during my 10-year absence from Toronto. Went with my son, who had the corned beef. His was nice and lean, about as flavourful as corned beef can be. I went with the smoked meat, which is pretty close as Canadians come to pastrami. Without a doubt, the Canadian shrine to... More

We visited Caplansky's on a Sunday for lunch. It was fairly busy but we were seated promptly on the terrace. Unfortunately things went downhill from there. We had to grab the owner to get some attention. He took our orders and sent someone with water. We waited a long time when my order finally came. The other orders (deli sandwiches)... More

While heading to my gate at the airport today I noticed Caplansky's Deli and decided to grab a smoked meat sandwich and some matzah ball soup - my favorite deli combo! I have to say I was very disappointed. The knaidel (matzah ball) was very hard and had an unappetizing color. The sandwich was tasty but I've never seen so... More

We had dinner on Saturday 11th October before our flight home, the service was appalling and the food was cold. From our table I could see our food order waiting to be served, our waitress was too busy talking to her colleagues that were on their break to notice that our food was ready. The waitress was rude and unapologetic.... More

We stopped in on a Thursday night to the college street location with the intention of grabbing a quick meal and tasting Toronto's Deli. Toronto has as much deli history as Montreal I was excited to give it a try. Everything was fine except the food. The smoked meat sandwich lacked about an inch compared to their menu pictures. It...
