This place got great reviews but I wasn't blown away. First of all, I am not a fan of having everything on one big plate. Also, I don't need super cold water, but the water was actually warm. A little ice could have gone a long way. I had the Vegan Goodness. It was very greasy and the garlic was... More

We walked a good distance to this place based on reviews. We were not disappointed with the food. We were disappointed that we were taken advantage of. Since they only take cash, we called ahead to make sure they take U.S. Dollars. The owner said she would. Our bill in Canadian dollars (after all the "extra" charges for Gluten Free-each... More

This place is located in the food court of village by grange. We ordered karines supreme breakfast, which was delicious and filling. Be sure to come here with empty stomach. They have vegan options as well. The pancakes are yummy. Overall, I recommend this place for breakfast.

The restaurant is a casual mall setting. I had the poached eggs and my daughter had a lunch type of meal. Both of us agreed the food was excellent. The owner served us and she could not have been better. I would highly recommend this place. An amazing find!

This place was a little hard to find. My husband and I had no idea it was located in a food court, but we're glad we found it. I have a wheat allergy so I rarely get to eat pancakes, crepes, or waffles. I ordered the banana Nutella gluten free crepes, and they tasted like heaven. The beautiful display of... More

Got the vegan supreme breakfast: two pancakes, garlic fries, veggies, fruit and toast. Excellent. I would've preferred the veggies to be hot but no biggie, pancakes and fries were the best part. Can't go wrong with the pink berry lemonade. Great service, great taste.

This place should be in the top 100 restaurants in Toronto. Value for quality is unbeatable. Service is upbeat, lightning fast and friendly. Great for both vegans and non-vegans. Best breakfast I've had in a very long time.

Do you want to experience a new breakfast at a good price? You have to come here! I was look for a veggie healthy and above all tasty breakfast and we weren't disappointed.or the meat lovers there are also more traditional plates to try. Moreover there is a great selection of vegan and gluten cakes :)

Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun. Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces that shoulder in against each other display shining roast ducks and menus studded with dumplings and noodle bowls. The air is pervaded with music. different languages, and the smell of fried food and mouth-watering desserts. Chinatown's restaurants represent a broad range of fare, from traditional Szechuan and Shanghai foods, to other Asian delicacies, including some of the top Japanese, Vietnamese, and Korean spots in the city. Whether you're in the mood for a sit-down tea house or a bubble tea to go, Chinatown is the spot to enjoy an exciting walk and the promise of leaving satisfied.
