Great restaurant, and bonus points - gluten free

Really enjoyed our dinner. We discovered this place by looking for gluten free options in the area, and it did not disappoint. Everything was well prepared, well presented and tasted great. The beer selection was good, great if you're looking for GF options. Three of us in our party are not... read more

Having celiac disease, before we traveled I did some research as to where the best restaurants were for gluten free products. I came across this one, and decided to try it out. We LOVED IT! The food was excellent, the best we've had in a long time! I had calamari, grilled cheese & poutine, and my husband had fish &... More

Visited this gluten free restaurant on first night in Toronto after booking online. Restaurant is located in a "bohemian" part of town (think of Brighton U.K. on steroids) and there were lots of interesting characters wandering around. We ordered the chicken fingers, belly pork canapés, spiced saffron rice and stuffed chicken. The starters were the highlight of the meal. There... More

I am so sad to write this review as I was really impressed in a previous visit but my boyfriend and I have visited two more times since my last review and were really disappointed. The stuffed pepper was incredibly bland and my boyfriend's burger was also unesco ting and his bun seemed a bit stale. I'm sad to say... More

We ate here about a year ago, and I have been looking forward to going back ever since. This past weekend my daughter and I made a trip in to Kensington Market for an afternoon of shopping. As the stores were closing down and the final World Cup game was playing on big screens throughout the Market, we made our... More

Kensington Cornerstone is a quaint little restaurant on a fun little street. The interior of the restaurant was clean, and appeared to have been recently renovated. We ordered fish and chips and children's chicken fingers meals. Three of us upgraded our fries to poutine. Everything was delicious - even the cole slaw. After our meal we ordered a slice of...

If you are in Toronto, you have to visit the eclectic Kensington neighborhood with lots of 2nd hand clothes stores, health food stores, odd shops and great little restos. Kensington Cornerstone is one of those and it caters to those who need to eat gluten free-the whole menu is gluten free. Plate sizes are huge and very tasty. Brunch is... More

Was over the moon to find a totally gluten free menu. Hurrah! As our server said "It's hard to get over." Went for brunch- incredible eggs Benedict on pumpernickel with brie and bacon, served with potato and yam hash. Sauce was divine, all the flavours combined perfectly. Friendly, laid-back service. Sat outside on the patio which was great as I... More

What a great find in an eclectic neighborhood in Toronto. The food was meticulously prepared and delicious. Service was great. Atmosphere was inviting and comfortable. Gluten free or not, I would highly recommend dining here.
