Unexpected Attention To Detail - A Tasty Take on Diner Breakfast/Brunch/Lunch

So I haven't been here in ages and never on a weekday. Bonus: No weekday lineup - YAAY! Tip: CASH ONLY PEOPLE! I I was curious to see if the quality of food had been maintained. Yep!

I went to this restaurant with a couple if friends on a visit to Toronto. The atmosphere is very retro and laid back. There was a few tables to sit at though. I had the breakfast burger with the home fries. The home fries were on point! The burger was juicey!

I've decided to try something new in Toronto. So I went to this restaurant, I found this place recommended as one of the best pancakes in Toronto. I definitely have to agree. They have the most delicious oatmeal pancakes that I have ever eaten here in Toronto. The restaurant opens at 9 am it is very different, with a charming... More

On my 1st morning in Toronto I sought out this recommended breakfast spot, having seen reviews online. I loved the quirky layout and laid back approach to the service....do NOT head here if your in a rush. This venue is to be enjoyed & the wait for a table is part of that experience......& you will not be disappointed. I... More

I googled Best Breakfast in Toronto. This place came up in the top . I was open to try it. Have been to many places, but now live away from Toronto. We read the menu and reviews on line, so we knew what to expect. 1. You will wait in line 2. They only take cash 3. It is "rustic"... More

Went there on the request of a friend. We waited in line for over fourty minutes while numerous tables left. Once seated by a server we were promptly ignored and left to sit for another twenty minutes. He returned, took our drink orders and brought them ten minutes later. I ordered apple cider to drink and it was literally one... More

Found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and went for breakfast on our first morning in Toronto. Took a while to find(near Kensington Market) but really pleased we did. Sat outside in the sunshine and enjoyed good food. No wait necessary as we were the first one's there at 10am when it opened.. Quirky mismatch of furniture which added to its... More

Waitress moved like molasses. So frustrated we left. The whole place was woefully understaffed with no acknowledgement of the people waiting in line, even when tables were clear.

We have been here a couple of times for brunch. It is always busy it seems. Expect to wait at least 20 minutes, longer if you get there at noon on a weekend. They pack a lot of people in and there is a second floor up some pretty steep and narrow stairs. The food is consistently very good, the... More
