We surprised the owners by showing up unannounced with a big group. They surprised us with good, honest food.

This is a pub which seems to have seen it's day a while back. Staff chatting with each other. We seated ourselves and picked up menu from the counter. Our server was friendly enough though inattentive. A smell pervades. Chicken pot pie is not in...More

Went in for a quick bite with a friend. We had the grilled chicken with the raspberry sauce.. it was out of this world. It came with cajun corn which was amazing and sweet potato fries... My mouth is drooling all over again, it was...More

Midtown
Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its
