A tiny little place with character and great service. Just dropped by late one weeknight. Place was full. Waited by the door (no real waiting area) but that was fine because the staff was very attentive and welcoming. Even the customers seemed friendly as we moved around by the door. Didn't have to... read more

Really liked this place as soon as we walked in. Very friendly. Excellent menu. I wasn't too hungry so I ordered Mushrooms on Toast ($7) with arugula and an Arugula and Quinoa Salad ($12) Both were delicious. The drinks list was very long and varied and I was delighted to see they had Beck's non-alcoholic beer. My partner ordered Fried... More

Everything was pretty good, but based on all the fabulous reviews, I expected more, I guess. We went for brunch. I got the Ace Breakfast. he best part of mine was the bread, fresh & delicious. The rest was just okay. The potatoes, in particular, although scalding hot, didn't have a whole lot of seasoning/flavour. My friend got the Huevos... More

This is a small little place with a lot of character. We wanted to get a feel for Canadian food and culture and this was it! Food was amazing, especially the bison burger. The frites were our favorite though!

We were road tripping to Toronto and only eating at Diner, Drive-ins, and Dives locations! After visiting I can see why they were picked for Triple D! The space was so small and cozy and the staff were VERY friendly! We ordered the egg Benedict and the French toast! Definitely recommend both! Since the place is small, they may have... More

I went there for a first time for their famous burger. But it was sunday. Instead I had an amazing brunch. everything from the food to the service was great. The place is small but you have a nice intimacy feeling. Went there with our newborn and we managed to have a good time. A few days after I purchased... More

Had nice dinner tuesday night with family - fabulous drinks/tasty comfort food. Fried chicken was delicious, but filling (some regrets...indulgent) - duck pountine was awesome. Ambience and service friendly... tight footprint makes tough spot for large groups.

My husband and I finally got around to going to The Ace for dinner - we've been wanting to try it for years! It was a chilly Friday night, and we arrived about 8pm. It took about an hour to secure a table, but the staff were very friendly - we went for a drink close by, and came back... More

A little cramped for 6 people, but well worth the drafty table at the front of the old diner. Crispy deep fried Brussels sprouts (heaven!) were followed by a steaming bowl of fish soup. Really delicious. My friends were equally pleased with their choices. The peanut butter ice box cake is clearly an over-the-top classic, but those who ordered it... More
