Went for a walk along the beaches in Toronto and as we meandered up the the quaint shopping area we came across this indoor/outdoor cafe. Service was good and the food was good. Had a traditional breakfast, Quiche and smoked salmon scrambled eggs. Ok price for the food. Nice atmosphere!

After some swimming at the lake, we ended up at the Beacher Cafe. We were welcomed by an attentive hostess and a great waiter. Excellent food, great atmosphere, friendly staff, personable owner and, above all, an amazing picante mayonnaise. A very attentive waiter (Konrad) made us feel at home, relaxed and taken care off. Kumiko, the owner, took time to... More

Haven't been to the Beacher Cafe for a few years so decided to try it again and see if the price/quality had improved. It was lunch so I ordered the chicken caeser salad listed for $18.00. I expected a substantial lunch for that amount but was disappointed at what I received and was certainly thankful that I hadn't gone with... More

Good mix of seating choices as you can sit inside but it is open to the outside, so no problem if it starts raining. Quick seating and friendly service. Lots of menu choices for brunch. Food was good, unfortunately not what I ordered. While paying I heard a complaint from someone who had not received all of their order. Maybe... More

Food was ok - I only had an appetiser which was tasty enough, 3 others in my party had mains which they were happy with. The problem came when the waitress cleared the table when one of our party was still obviously eating (a common, annoying restaurant error in Canada/North America) then worst of all after asking if we would...

This is a great breakfast spot. We go here with the grandchildren, and they always find something to their liking. There is usually street parking close by. The prices are typical for the Beach area...a little high, but that is not unique for this area.

Okay, Beacher Cafe does have its advantages. It's easy if you are in a big group or you just want something easy where everyone will find something to eat. It is definitely good for families. The only problem is that everything will be mediocre and kind of expensive for what it is. I wouldn't go to the Beacher unless the... More

Went there tonight with a small group of friends, 5 in total. Night started off with them informing us the bill would have to come as 1. This is just annoying as almost every restaurant has the ability to split bills. Not sure why that is an issue. I learned why this is the case after, it is because they... More

The Beacher is a cozy, family-friendly restaurant offering many comfort food-style dishes. Their spaghetti is a hit with the kids, and the portions are quite large (my young boys can even share a dish off the Kids Menu). This week I tried their Meat Lasagna, which was delicious! It was also HUGE and made for a tasty lunch the next... More

This is a great place for brunch. Food is simple, but good. Service is good, and the ambience is cafe like with large windows to observe the comings and goings on the street.

Staying in East End

Neighborhood Profile
East End
The East End is an eclectic amalgamation of areas that team up to make this district one of the most multi-faceted and alluring. Home to Toronto's LGBT community hub, Gay Village is alive and pumping day or night with friendly bars, nightclubs, and cafes – its thumb is on the pulse of excitement. For a more relaxed day, the East End has the largest collection of restored Victorian homes, and its stately streets, tree-lined and bursting at the seams with affluence, often sport farmers markets and street artists, epitomized by the effusive St. Lawrence Market. One of the most gorgeous of Toronto's neighborhoods, it also straddles Lake Ontario in an area called The Beach, where you'll find folks cycling and strolling along the sandy shorelines, getting some sun or enjoying shopping, dining, and pub options. For some fabulous food, the vivacious personalities running the restaurants in the East End's Greektown is only equaled by the fun and authenticity of the street stalls and restaurants at its expansive Indian Bazaar. 'Something for everyone' has never been so accurate.
