“Good experience”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

If you live around it's a good choice for breakfast & cafe but it doesn't have anything special for me to come back if I'm not in that area.

Reviewed February 3, 2013

Yes... start my day with a delicious breakfast wrap and any coffee or the crisp croissant!
Thank God, good morning vibe and never again the f***face old lady in there throwing food over the counter.
My day... good day!

“Great Food!”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

Had an excellent avocado, tomato, and provolone Panini, topped off with a 180 degree latte. The deserts looked delicious, but I didn't partake in one. This is one hopping place of young office workers during the week in Toronto on Spadina. Great fast service. There are about 10 tables. Many take their food to go,

“Enjoy... check this out!”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

Work days are not always good and often at the end of the day I went for a coffee or a delicious chocolate chip cookie in Le Gourmand! But more than that it is pleased to be greeted with a smile.
Le Gourmand reopened with the same menu and an atmosphere that seems more spacious and clean and organized, but above all with an ever-smiling face.
There's a guy who seems to do everything by himself, like fish in the sea. Nice to see how he enjoys working, and doing really hard in every details, but above all... trying to generates a friendly and intimate time in something so simple as buying a coffee.
Good food, ood team and good job especially in a world where everyone seems to run!

“The disappointment continues...”
Reviewed November 19, 2012 via mobile

I've been a frequent customer of Le Gourmand over the years and it used to be my regular weekend spot for breakfast, coffee, treats for friends, etc. unfortunately their latest closure and reemergence has resulted in a zero value proposition for their customers. No one working there now seems to know what they are doing. During my last visit, my request to put a rush on placing my sandwich on the grill was met with hotty stares of indignation - it seems the cashier doesn't touch the food but just works the cash. Normally I have pretty mild expectations of service in a coffee place but the amount of time it has taken to receive my last few food orders has been incredible - truly almost hard to believe. 18 minutes for breakfast for my husband and I; 7 minutes to receive a grilled sandwich that was already prepared and just needed to be grilled. This is all disappointing because the food is actually very good but the lack or organization to actually receive the food takes away from the enjoyment of it. I hope they can get their act together; the Starbucks two doors down is only too happy to steal customers from a neighborhood establishment.
