Issues: Dirty restaurant, lousy service, Cross-contamination in food preparation Hardly anyone in the restaurant at 2pm. We ordered items and were advised they weren't available. This place has too many items on their menu for a slow restaurant. There was food on the floor by prep area. The cook preparing making my companions chicken breast burger picked up raw chicken...

Had the Big Time breakfast...three eggs, three peameal bacon slices, two toast, hash browns, coffee...cost $8.99. Only three tables were occupied and ordered and had my food before I knew it. For a filling breakfast, it's just fine.

I came here with my 9 month old daughter on a Sunday morning just to grab a bite to eat and get out of the house (didn't feel like waiting 30 mins at aunties and uncles). They didn't know if they had a high chair but then someone found one so we stayed. Staff are all senior citizens. Nothing against... More

Used to frequent Mars while at U of T and later with a buddy after I graduated who loved the place. 2nd last time I was there, the food was not what it used to be and service was weak. Gave it one more try. The LAST time I went to Mars we walked in and exchanged a "hello" with... More

I just made a stop here because my iPhone was getting repaired and I didn't know what to do. I saw the Toronto Life Best restaurant on the display and thought it would be nice to pay a visit. First of all, there was a homeless person eating here (ew!). I mean it's a little bit weird to enter in... More

Went to Mars back in 2000 and it was well marked... Breakfast then was good... went back in 2012 and all seemed avery average to me...Maybe I am too used to Full English Breakfast.

I have been eating at the Mars restaurant, corner of College & Bathurst since I was 8 years old! And have been taking my kids there off and on there for 60 years. Just moved back to Toronto and ate there this weekend. WOW - GAG summarizes the experience. I ordered scrambled eggs and bacon - home fries came with... More

I guess it's cool that this place has been around for a while, but I'm just not into it.
