We were enjoying the Beaches district of Toronto, enjoying the shops and everything else close to the lake, when we decided to try this place for supper. It's situated right on the street, so you can people watch. My wife, two children and I easily found something on the menu, and the prices were not bad, around $10-$12 a plate.... More

Read about this restaurant from online reviews and was happy that the great online reviews were accurate. Very fresh, generous portions. Service was unbelievably quick and still polite and courteous. Would return here for sure.

Went there for Saturday morning brunch (yesterday). We were just walking by and decided to give it a try. Friendly staff, good food and plenty of choice. House breakfast comes with salad, 2 eggs, bacon, sausage, potato pancakes and toast. My daughter had the chocolate banana waffles. We recommend any place this welcoming.

We live in the area and have been to the old Green Eggplant several times. It is always great. Although we were excited for a larger restaurant, I was a bit nervous that it wouldn't be the same and that service or food quality would change. We went NYE. It was packed as it always is. Although the restaurant is... More

We are local to the Green Eggplant and find this to be one of our favourite dining locations. The food is consistently great, the atmosphere is always lively, the staff are friendly and courteous. We have not been there since they moved to the new location (November 2015), but will definitely be visiting them in the next week or two... More

Walked by tonight and was very surprised to see the place dark, emptied and with a "FOR RENT" sign in the window!! Met a women outside who had driven with her fiancé to have dinner there as the restaurant's website was still active. CLOSED - No warning. The restaurant really seemed to have made it in the Beaches...not an easy... More

If you're looking for a great restaurant with good food and atmosphere in the beaches area, definitely consider going to the Green Eggplant. The food is excellent, service was great and the menu is extensive with options for most dietary needs. The prices are reasonable and you will leave the place full.

Staying in East End

Neighborhood Profile
East End
The East End is an eclectic amalgamation of areas that team up to make this district one of the most multi-faceted and alluring. Home to Toronto's LGBT community hub, Gay Village is alive and pumping day or night with friendly bars, nightclubs, and cafes – its thumb is on the pulse of excitement. For a more relaxed day, the East End has the largest collection of restored Victorian homes, and its stately streets, tree-lined and bursting at the seams with affluence, often sport farmers markets and street artists, epitomized by the effusive St. Lawrence Market. One of the most gorgeous of Toronto's neighborhoods, it also straddles Lake Ontario in an area called The Beach, where you'll find folks cycling and strolling along the sandy shorelines, getting some sun or enjoying shopping, dining, and pub options. For some fabulous food, the vivacious personalities running the restaurants in the East End's Greektown is only equaled by the fun and authenticity of the street stalls and restaurants at its expansive Indian Bazaar. 'Something for everyone' has never been so accurate.
