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... More

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.

We were disppointed today when we arrived at Kensington Cornerstone and saw a large dumpster out front. I feared that this reliable gluten free restaurant had closed down but fortunately, it is undergoing a renovation. The sign out front says it will reopen January 10/14. I look forward to once again enjoying my favorites; their delicious eggs benedict and lamb... More

So. I'm celiac. I hate being celiac because it means that brunch, which used to be glorious pancakes and French toast, now just isn't. Until Kensington Corner. ZMOOOOGGGG!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE. I want to move to Toronto so I can eat there every weekend. I love it. I had a gluten free pancake that tasted like a REAL PANCAKE.... More

This restaurant is located at the southern edge of the Market. Service was very good, as was the food. We'd like to see the menu expand a bit so that there'd be more variety. Fair price point. Good atmosphere without the overloud music that some eateries inflict on patrons. PS after your meal search further north in the market for... More

My wife cannot eat gluten so we were really looking forward to going to this restaurant. We arrived in a group of nine, which included two kids. Everyone ordered burgers or sandwiches, with the exception of myself and one other friend -- I got the stuffed Chicken and he asked for the steak. 45 minutes later and food had not... More

I came here with my boyfriend while visiting Toronto after searching online for gluten free restaurants as I am allergic to wheat. We were seated right away and our server was quick and attentive. I ordered lemonade which turned out to be more like lemon juice in water, which was disappointing but still okay. I then got the turkey bacon... More

It was a slightly chilly day, but we still opted for outside dining. The food was sooo delicious and our waiter was sweet. It's rare to find a totally gluten-free restaurant for my friend so she was absolutely thrilled to be there.
