If you're looking for great food, genuinely friendly staff, reasonable prices and a good location, then this is the place for you.
The quality of the freshly prepared food is second to none, and the menu has a great selection to suit all tastes. A terrific range of delights awaits in the Deli, where the expertise in cheeses shines through.
This place is a perfect little eatery, which successfully combines European and Canadian approaches with style, and a smile.

This place is a great addition to downtown. The food is scratch-made from local ingredients and only quality ingredients. Everything is prepared fresh and the food is uncomplicated, only enhanced so the ingredients shine through as what they are.

I love the burgers, grilled cheese variations and the smoked meat sandwich is also very good. Soups are tasty and well seasoned and the overall vibe of the place is very positive and helpful. Well done! Will return again and again for sure.

Very tasty and unique spin on grilled cheese sandwiches using local cheeses. The Brie grilled cheese is to die for!

The Danforth is one of the very few places open early in the morning. Check them out for their special on the breakfast bun with Canadian bacon before 10am. Im here for a long stay and the rotating menu is fresh and delicious!
