I had brunch on a weekend on the street terrasse (located on a quiet street), enjoying the sun. The food was to be enjoyed as well. Very tasty brunch items (I had a burrito) and enough food for the hungriest!.

Three of us had lunch on Pride Sunday. We knew that we would have a wait; we did not know that we would wait seventy five minutes for two salads and a fish and chips. The kitchen, bar and restaurant were clearly badly understaffed and completely overwhelmed. Our server was friendly and doing her best, but she could only do... More

This is a great place for a a drink or too and it has a fairly large patio. The inside restaurant also has lots of room. The service here was always a little on the slow side and most time we did have to flag our waiter/waitress down for refills. The food was okay, typical bar fare. Atmosphere is typical... More

Went in last week to have a couple of beers. The place wasn't busy and I could see bar staff but after waiting 10 minutes to be served, I left.

Nothing impressive, nothing special or different, just the classical standard pub food. Outside seating is nice when the sun is in that side of the street but that is unfortunately too early to enjoy it! When you need it the most, in the afternoon, the patio is already in the shadow...😳 Good enough for a quick drink after work, that's... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
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 Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
