Surprisingly good Airport Breakfast

On a Toronto layover, we stopped in for a shared breakfast. Food was very tasty. Service was good and accommodating as we'd wanted to share a platter and some places make such an issue of that. Waiter was great for that time of day!

My husband and I stopped in at Fionn MacCool's at the Toronto airport for breakfast while we waited for our flight. I'd seen this pub many times while at this airport and looked forward to actually finally eating there. I ordered the smoked salmon bagel, orange juice, and coffee. The coffee was dreadful and bitter. The orange juice was tasty... More

The bouncer is an awful and ignorant person, after reading previous reviews I'm glad I'm not the only one who's had this experience. We were there with a large group and naturally were fairly loud, after 1 glass of wine she told me I will be cut off if I don't keep it down. The issue here was that we... More

We were between flights, and we waited to be seated for 10 minutes, although staff was swarming around us all the time on some mysterious errands, but studiously ignoring us. When we finally got a table, we ordered something simple off the menu because we had a connecting flight within an hour – plenty of time, you would think. But... More

Had a day of walking and on way to the St Lawrence market stop to check out the menu. Needed lunch so we went in. Excellent food and pleasant service. I had a breakfast poutine and my husband had the stacked Reuben. Price was not bad. Definitely gave us a large amount to eat.

We stopped in for a pint of Guinness and to catch the end of the Raptors game last Friday. We had just been next door stuffing our faces at The Old Spaghetti Factory. Great atmosphere and live music. I love pubs like this, unfortunately we had to leave before the music really got started but from what I heard it... More

I like the one on Front Street. (Front and Blue Jays Way). Its a great spot for before a Jays Game and great for groups. Lots of seating, indoor and outdoors. Prices are great for the area they are in as well! I love their WINGS! Brunch is pretty great at this place too! The home fries are cooked with... More

We went here in the coldest weather we had experienced until visiting Toronto, and we were so happy that we did. On such a cold day the drinks went down very well and the food even better! Two potato loving girls who were missing home cooked meals, had a good hearty meal. Shepherds pie, steak and mushroom pie and poutine!... More

We enjoyed the food, beer and service. The place gets busy and so may not suit you if you want more space. It is a good place for summer events with their outdoor patio but you need to book in advance.

Had a late business lunch here with food and drink and both food and service were okay. Waitress was very friendly. I would go back but would not go out of my way to eat here.
