The lunch is good tasty zestful

Getting in at lunchtime is not so easy. There is often a lineup. It gives fast. The place is warm inviting and small. The narrow staircase winding up is dangerous if your older or lame. Be careful. However, the foods good. Filling, plentiful, creative. Zestful

I don't understand why this place is so hyped. We went there after hearing good things about it on a fine Saturday morning. There was a huge line and we had to wait for 45 minutes before getting a place (further inflating the hype). We ordered the usual omelates and stuff since we didn't want to eat the special burger...

Great brunch in sunshine on outdoor terrace. Very welcoming staff - coffee on tap. Fab menu with great choices for veggie/non veggie - healthy/blow-out. Blueberry pancakes and cinnamon French toast both very good with heaps of maple syrup. Great walk through Chinatown and Kensington market to get here too. Best breakfast in Toronto - highly recommended.

Really hipster place. We got to sit upstairs which still had lots of seats despite queue outside- we think this was to make it easier on the kitchen. Two of us had breakfast tacos- they were delicious and really filling. Free refills on coffee. Excellent service from staff, the offered to look after our luggage we had ready to head... More

We had high hopes for this place as they have rave reviews, but the service was terrible! First the girl barked at us to let her clean the table when i asked if we could sit outside...right then we should have left. The other servers took our orders, we was neutral, not impolite, nor sympathetic, even though i tried to... More

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! We sat downstairs, (love the surroundings - all decor from mostly the 50's - formica kitchen tables, signs, wall decorations, tons of stuff... More

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

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
