Cozy place for dog owners and not only!

Great coffee! Nice view, affordable prices. Waffles are delicious! Grab sweet siders with bacons. Very relaxing atmosphere! Good salads too!

this was our first breakfast in Toronto, located right on the waterfront, in the same building as pet place. It had a large enough breakfast menu for us all to choose something including my daughter who doesn't like eggs (which seem to feature on every breakfast menu in so many places!). It also does very good smoothies and coffee. The... More

This is a very good breakfast place pretty much on the water and much cheaper than hotels. Service friendly and good. Not fancy, but who cares for breakfast?

I'm there regularly on weekends. The coffee is very good. Breakfast bagel is delicious. Sometimes the service is a bit slow if they're busy. But worth the wait.

Stumbled upon this place while walking around looking for a coffee. Right near the water and it is inside a petstore....which is weird but we tried it anyway. The food was good and the coffee was good. Ate our food pretty quickly and went for a nice walk by the water. The place is small but you're only eating breakfast... More

This was so nice to have directly across the way from the Radisson Hotel. ten steps out of the lobby and your are there. Very convenient - we checked out of the hotel and went to William's for a late breakfast. I was happy to they were serving up their full menu and it wasn't yet noon! Very friendly service,... More

This specific establishment Williams Fresh Cafe Is a “gem!” It is found in the revitalized central waterfront; south end of Downtown Toronto ...mid Queens Quay West. It is hard to know what to call this establishment...it is not a pub, not your typical restaurant, not an in and out coffee chain, not fast food (even though the service is prompt).... More

Staying in Downtown West

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
