As soon as we walked in the waiter greeted us and let us sit anywhere we pleased. She brought us out menus right away. The juice was very tasty and the omelette was perfection. This was the only place we could find a nice sit down breakfast and we were pleasantly surprised by it. The food is very good and... More

Was looking for a place to grab some breakfast after touring the CN Tower this morning. Came across Ultimate as I walked down King Street. Glad I could find a place with some breakfast still! Was seated outside and order was taken promptly. Food did not take too long and the omelette and bacon was delicious! Only a couple tables... More

A little place on West Street, good service, drinks were cold, food was good. Pasta cooked the way it should be, could have with or without meat/chicken. Open kitchen with only chef so service was a little slow, but everything was served hot. Good place to stop if you had not read about where to eat.

Ive been there for brunch and it was fantastic. I had waiter Abby and she was really nice and helpful. I ordered fettuccine with cream sauce and some add-ons. My meal was ready really quick and i truly enjoyed it. One of the best pastas i ever had.

Service is friendy and... More

I've been to Ultimate Cafe many times in the past 3 or 4 years. It has become a favourite before theatre for us. I can't understand why it is seldom busy ... I almost hesitate to write a good review in case we suddenly can't get in without waiting. But I see other good reviews here. The menu is mostly... More

We really enjoyed the food at this cafe on King Street right across from the Princess of Wales Theatre. The food is fresh and reasonably priced. The wait staff are friendly and helpful. We were able to sit at a table with a view of the street and look out for our sister in law who was meeting us.

we just visited this place on Sunday at around 6 pm. We decided to go in because the young guy at the door was very nice and friendly. There was only one table occupied when we walked in. That should have been the first warning sign. The second was the menu, it seemed a little all over the place with... More

It must be the new trend, a price fixed meal of 3 courses for a pre-set price. More than enough food. We were hungry so we went early to King Street and looked at most of the restaurants before deciding on the Ultimate Cafe. Wise choice. It was $35 Canadian for a 3 course meal, drinks & taxes separate. Because... More
