Hit this place up for some early lunch and we were not disappointed. Dry rubbed smoked ribs were very good, with a side of homecut fries and some nice greens. We enjoyed the food, which was fresh and the service was excellent. Definately return!

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.

I stopped here on a Bites & Sights food walking tour of the Junction a few weeks ago. The place is cool looking... But that's about it in my opinion. We sampled a few things including some sort of fritter with seafood in it (I passed) a pulled pork slider that was more bun than it was meat and a... More

Located just east of Keele in the restaurant-competitive Junction, I was keen to try this place. The interior is a rustic industrial chic, keeping on trend. It was a quiet Wednesday night with only a few parties, and I was visiting with a friend. They have a happy hour that my friend and I took advantage of, and a well-curated... More

My first time and I keep dreaming to go there again.... Meal was amazing and service was excellent. I was very excited to try this restaurant based on the online menu.We did not feel rushed which can ruin a dinner out.

This is a totally charming little spot. The atmosphere is perfect. Service was excellent. We did not feel rushed which can ruin a dinner out. The staff was very attentive and knew exactly when to arrive. The meal was amazing bit of the south. I had the chicken and waffles with the bourbon maple syrup. It was cooked to perfection... More

...but that's about it. We were with a group of 4 couples and I was very excited to try this restaurant based on the online menu. My wife and I ordered a variety of oysters to start. They arrived quickly but none of the other dinner guests received their appetizers. The food was served in shifts which left everyone staring... More

Just saying the word brunch makes me smile. Roux really makes me smile. It's a bright spot on a rather sad part of the street. This part of the junction has yet to be gentrified, there are a few hints that it is coming, but with a place like this, progress is not far behind. Don't expect huge servings of... More

We were looking forward to patronizing Roux, hoping it would be our new local go-to. Not off to a great start as the table service was very slow: 20 minutes to get our drinks, 40 minutes for food and 45 minutes for cutlery to eat said food. We had heard their chicken and waffles were good, and were excited to... More

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.
