This place offers up some authentic schnitzel sandwiches that are trustworthy and savory. They come with a great piece of bread, lettuce, and tomato. The service is very homey and the people who run the place seem like nice, hard working, schnitzel technicians.

I hadn't been here recently, but today I stopped for a light lunch. I had a chicken schnitzel sandwich with lettuce, tomatoes and pickles. For $7.35, HST included, it's a steal! This is a comfortable place that serves Central European food. Recommended!

We stopped by Bread and Butter for breakfast this morning with mixed results. I had stopped for a coffee the day before and really enjoyed their Americano. Today we ordered breakfast with a regular coffee at $1.69. The coffee was bitter and reminded me of the kind of bad coffee people often get from home coffee makers, very disappointing. I... More

In addition to an assortment of very tasty sandwiches, egg dishes and salads, their Eastern European food (and especially the goulash soup) is a joy . According to friends , their schnitzel is outstanding. Not fancy, just good food at very reasonable prices.

Ate lunch here twice in 4 days. Goulash soup is excellent as was the soup of the day which was a mixed bean soup. The cabbage rolls are to die for and the sandwiches are also good. Tried the apple struddle which was good but the chocolate raspberry mousse cake was so delicious..a chocolate lover's dream. The servings are large,... More

This is a friendly neighbourhood place with a limited but adequate menu that is good both for sit-down meals and take-out. The schnitzel I had was as good as anything this side of Vienna. Recommended!

Nothing fancy, just very good food and very accommodating people (from the chef-owners to the service staff). The goulash soup is wonderful. The egg dishes are excellent. My friends go there for the schnitzel, and claim it is outstanding. The sandwiches are diverse and consistently tasty. Everything that is important is very good, and the prices and value is excellent.... More

This family owned neighbourhood restaurant offers great home cooking in a friendly, affordable, cozy atmosphere. With a European flair,Mira the chef offers my favourite dishes; cabbage rolls, Wiener schnitzel, and fantastic deli sandwiches. Save room for her famous baklava or other delicious deserts.

This darling bistro and is the most adorable place in Toronto. It's really like a cozy café, with the most excellent home made food! I am allergic to perservatives and MSG and this place is a slice of heaven. I've never had to have lunch at Subway or McDonald's ever again when you can home made shnitzel, fish, montreal smoked...

Staying in North End

Neighborhood Profile
North End
The North End is a nucleus of specialty food restaurants and shops, especially around its Mount Pleasant Village area. Frequented by antiquers for its numerous collectable shops, furniture spots, and oddity stores, the North End is a maverick of the quaint and quality. Vintage toy stores, accessory shops, and cinemas welcome perusers to step back in time, while the wide pedestrian squares and the large medical and business community inject it with a dose of modernity. With numerous cafes and Toronto's greatest number of independent booksellers, it isn't uncommon to see folks in this area at their leisure, reading outdoors and in eateries, and taking life a bit more slowly – even if it's only during their lunch break.
