“High-end service with small prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014 via mobile

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.

“Quaint Restaurant with Good Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

We are regulars at The Ultimate Cafe before our Mirvish theatre night out. The restaurant is cosy and friendly with a modern touch of sophistication. The pasta dishes are delicious, good sized portions and reasonably priced. Salads are crisp and fresh an the desserts are tempting and tasty. They also have choices of draft on tap. Service is friendy and done in a timely manner especially if the server is informed that we are going to the theatre. The restaurant is very close to the theatres on King Street and right across the street from TIFF. I highly recommend this restaurant.

“A long time favourite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

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 pasta with some Asian choices ... all that I've had were excellent, and my companions agree, and prices are quite reasonable for the theatre district. We have always had friendly, attentive wait staff, often the same waitress that even remembers us. The music is usually jazz standards at the appropriate volume. Why there isn't a line-up at the door is a mystery to me.

“A good place to grab a bite before a show”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

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.
