Great company, Good food

My friends and I went here for brunch on Saturday, and I can honestly say that we sampled most of the items on the brunch menu. Most people really enjoyed their meals, but some were certainly left wanting more. For example, I had the southern breakfast, which I found to be delicious. There were... read more

This place is incredible. I have tried almost everything on the menu and can honestly say it is all delicious. The staff are incredible. I hosted a bachelorette dinner here last summer and the staff made us feel so wonderful. GREAT T.O restaurant!

Located in that "interesting" stretch of Dundas east of Keele, Roux is a newish addition to the emerging foodie haven in the Junction. Southern French Creole food is a good idea, and the attractive reno of this space is very inviting. You should not accept this invitation! Porkbelly & Catfish arrives with something that is not porkbelly but rather a... More

I was hungover and very hungry which may explain why I enjoyed this place so much. With that being said, I got breakfast hash and it is something I dream of. Crispy, creamy, amazing and the mushroom sauce on top of poached eggs makes me cry tears of joy when I think about it. Every plate looks picture perfect.

I don't do creole often so this was a nice change. The food was good. No complaints there. The space is beautiful and the service was good (though we were there on a Wednesday night and it wasn't very busy). I'm glad we went, however, there are a few restaurants in the surrounding area that I would choose to go... More

I had heard of ROUX being a great restaurant, with a variety of reasonably priced dishes for everyone. So we reserved for 20 and went for brunch on a Sunday. The place and the staff were welcoming. Adults and kids were happy with all they ordered and asked for. The atmosphere, as many say, really reminded 2 couples we were... More

Having been to New Orleans and taken in their amazing culinary flavors, makes it difficult to find similar style restaurants in your own back yard. In my case, Toronto. But, after receiving a recommendation from a very reliable person, my daughter, I decided to put this restaurant to the test. I, obviously, did not go alone. My wife and daughter... More

We had a birthday party here one evening last year and the service and food was excellent. The atmosphere was lots of fun - food was delicious and service was fast and friendly. We returned a few months later for brunch one weekend. We were quite hungry when we arrived but the restaurant was more than half empty so we... More

This is a small spot in the Junction, an up and coming neighborhood in the GTA and it is amazing! It's small but intimate, has a patio, but the best part is the food and the drinks!!! Namely the "suffering basterd" holy cow, like nothing I've ever had! We had the Jambalaya and Pulled pork poutine...divine! Desserts change all the... More

What a lovely little surprise! A walk away from my house and I can enjoy this restaurant. Service is super friendly & knowledgable. Prices are excellent for both food & wine. Fresh oysters reasonably priced. Just a delight.

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
The go-to area for new business start-ups, the spry and creative persona of the West End thrives along its streets. Its independent boutiques, galleries, restaurants, and shops offer brands that can't be found elsewhere. Buildings with ground floor consumer spaces sport up-top artist's lofts, and the West End attracts artists, designers, and fashion industry professionals to its living quarters. It is in the cross-hairs of gentrification, but still resisting it with ironic relish. Hot deals can still be found here on furniture and knick-knacks,. Its call to culinary glory is in its well-priced homemade Polish food, hosting Toronto's go-to spots for hot pierogis and cold borscht. High Park, the largest green space in the city, is a place for dreamers and poets to wander and rest, not to mention a number of energetic actors staging outdoor plays in the summertime.
