This local hangout is 'local'. The food is pub grub but features daily specials that are uninspired, but palatable. Many diverse beer types are available on tap. The service is efficient but not friendly... unless you are a local at the bar. Tv's fixed on...More

While most people might think of The Jester primarily as a pub and an evening or weekday lunch destination, they put on quite a respectable weekend brunch. The dishes on offered are standard fare - Eggs Benedict with a choice of ham or salmon; steak...More

I've been here many times as I live in the area. I cant go in anymore - the place really turns me off. I had an awful meal there and that was it for me.

Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its
most stylish high-rise residences and heritage
buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden
arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel
