My son and I were looking for a place for lunch. We tried Rosedale as it's not too far from where he lives. We got there after 2 so it was pretty quiet. Just one other table. The restaurant is pretty small but nicely decorated...More

The Rosedale Diner is not your average diner. The menu items are upscale, fitting the neighbourhood which is comprised of food, fashion, and home decor boutiques targeted at net worth millionaires. Walk around before or after lunch. We had a roasted beet salad with trimmings...More

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
