This is a tourist type of spot, but the service was good and so was the food. Very laid back atmosphere.

I'm not sure what the heck is up with this place. If you show up on a weekday, the service is great. Show up on a weekend however, and the service is bad to the pint of it being insulting--which is a pity because it's...More

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to

Oops, wrong place. I doubt Duke's would have a breakfast menu. Stick to Eggsmart on Bay and Elm.

Hi, not to my knowledge but it's a good atmosphere, lovely food and the music played was good. The elephant and Castle over the road has a good menu too. Have a great time, we did!
