Have been going here for perhaps three years. Food consistently good and staff always obliging. Menus have a wide selection. There's a patio out back which overlooks a wooded ravine. A little more pricey than some good local restaurants but Jawny Bakers delivers.

I had heard this was a great place to take your kids so I thought it would be a good place to go with my family and my brother and his wife. We arrived at about 6:00 Sunday and the restaurant was empty except for about 2 tables. I should also mention that the place is huge. When the host... More

Great food and very family friendly. The food is high quality, and flavourful at a fair price. The atmosphere is great and clean. Look forward to going back when I'm in Toronto again!

I should first point out that I don't typically 'do' reviews, because all too often I find they really aren't warranted or justified. I think that the restaurant Jawny Bakers certainly warrants one, and is WELL justified. Right from the moment you walk into this restaurant, you know that you're going to be treated well. The staff there are not... More

This is your classic bar scene, even though it has a family sitting area. The best restaurant that you can compare this to is probably Kelsey's. Even though the prices are a little bit higher, this place is ideal for the typical modern family. I would recommend this place to anyone.

As a senior the only thing I found reasonable was the lunch menu but it was dinner time... as a senior i can't pay 15.85 to $19.00 for five of six salad... More

We love it here and probably come about once a week now. It took us awhile after moving to the area to venture in, and once we did we were converts and have been coming regularly for years. My favourite thing is that after you've been there a few times, the staff remember you, and it is really nice to... More

jawny Bakers is our neighbour restaurant. The food is great, with the feature menu changin monthly, the staff is attentive and super friendly and in the wintertime we enjoy our meal in the bar lounge and come the nice weather we are out back on the patio edging the ravine. What more could you ask for? Our family has been... More

Although we live in the neighbourhood, we've never eaten here as we had heard the food was not that great. We thought we'd give it a try after reading the recommendation in Today's Parent magazine. This is really a family place - the service was fabulous and they love kids. The layout was spacious (there was a ton of room... More
