Southern Accent is a very quaint but cool restaurant situated on a cozy residential street. It is draped with Mardi Gras accents and is in a comfy-cozy space. The hostess at the door announced she had just ended her shift but would seat us anyway (hmm). But, we were soon greeted by a super friendly waiter (Adam) who quickly became... More

As soon as I entered a restaurant with a fortune teller and campy decorations, I instantly regretted making dinner reservations there. Fortunately the decor was by no means an indication of the food. The cheese grits were so good we had 2 orders! The cracker crusted catfish was moist and flavourful.

Went here for date night. Excellent patio during the summer. Everytime I eat here I have to order their hush puppies (corn fritters served with a garlic lime piquant sauce). The sweet/sour contrasted with a hint- so very subtle of heat is excellent. Hush puppies are crispy on the outside and very light and fluffy on the inside. A great... More

My family recently joined my parents at Southern Accent for a birthday celebration, Most of us had different menu items and we all LOVED our meals. The brisket poutine was a huge hit with the kids. I have had hush puppies elsewhere in the past, but not like these. They were crispy on the outside, soft and delicious on the... More

I've been to quite a few restaurants in different cities during my travels and this has to be one of the best in terms of food and service. I found the hospitality was definitely cordial and friendly, the service to be impeccable and reliable, and the food to absolutely incredible. My friends and I shared those delicious must-have hush puppies... More

Great to dine in a place that serves delicous food and has character! If you can't live without chrome and sparse decor, this is not the place for you! Not only are the staff super friendy and extremely helpful, the food is delicious! Took a group of French-speaking ladies here for our annual summer fling and we were not disappointed.... More

My parents wanted some authentic southern fare on their recent visit to Toronto and we though we would try this trendy eaterie. A balmy spring evening on the patio watching the Maserati and flash cars race by whilst we idled over the mouthwatering menus and sipped white wine. We sampled many of the amazing dishes on the menu served with... More

Went here with a couple of friends on a Friday evening. We ordered a bunch of stuff off the appetizer menu and it was all good. The Hush Puppies were crunchy, but not too hard, and very soft in the centre. Blackened chicken on poutine? Awesome twist. And it turned out it was 1/2 apps day, so dinner for 3... More

I love this place -- the blackened chicken livers, the patio, the decor, the tacky vista of Honest Eds nearby. It's vintage Toronto.
